Assailing the Narendra Modi led BJP government at the Centre, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said his party was committed to forming a government in 2019 that will make up for all the crimes that the Prime Minister has done against the farmers over the last five years.
Rahul Gandhi was addressing the Polling Booth Committee Members from all over Kerala, in Kochi.
Gandhi further said the Congress had waived farm loans in three states — Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh — where it won the Assembly elections last year.
Attacking PM Modi, the Congress chief said the Prime Minister has “provided a maximum income guarantee to 15 of his friends” while quoting Anil Ambani’s name in an indirect reference to the Rafale deal.
He further said the Congress would give a minimum income guarantee to all the Indians if it forms the government.
Rahul Gandhi had earlier on Monday said his party will give every poor person a Minimum Income Guarantee if it is voted to power.
On BJP government’s promise of providing two crore jobs to the youngsters, Gandhi said Modi had spent five years wasting India’s time telling one lie after another.
He further said his party will ensure that in every election, many more youngsters and women are given the opportunity to participate. “We want to see women in positions of leadership and I know leaders of Kerala are extremely capable,” he added.
