Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday said the people of the country have no faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “hollow” promises.
Addressing her first election rally since the dates of the Bihar assembly polls were announced last month, she said in Kahalgaon assembly constituency in Bhagalpur district, “People have no faith in Modi’s hollow promises.”
While stating that the upcoming elections would give a new direction to the country, she said, “Vote for the ‘Grand Alliance’ of the Congress, Janata Dal-United and RJD in the polls to get rid of empty promises of Modi.”
She also said that Modi spent more time in foreign than in his own country and only loves hugging powerful people. She said, “Modi’s government is working for industrialists only, this government is anti-poor and anti-farmer.”
Sonia blamed the BJP-led central government’s wrong policies for causing inflation in the country and leading to a big army of unemployed youths. She added that the reservation for dalits and other backward classes was as per the constitution and no one could end it.
Sonia Gandhi is scheduled to address her second rally in Vajirganj assembly seat in Gaya district on Saturday evening.
