The Congress on Wednesday came down heavily on the NDA Government at the Centre alleging its failure to deal with the issues confronting the people across the nation.
Addressing a press conference here, AICC spokesperson and former MLA Alka Lamba alleged that the BJP-led Government at the Center has failed to provide enough employment opportunities to the youth and the common people have been bearing the brunt of inflation.
She said, “Farmers were given a blank bluff of doubling their income. Backward, Dalit, tribal sections of the society were not given enough opportunities for progress. Opportunities were created just for his Dhanna Seth friends and to cover up all these failures India has been pushed into a quagmire of hatred, despair and negativity”,
“Today India is being broken at every level and the country’s resources are being diverted towards a handful of people. That’s why, Rahul Gandhi is breaking the root of hatred, despair and negativity of the BJP from Kanyakumar to Kashmir and uniting India. Millions of people are walking on the road in the Bharat Jodo Yatra. This padyatra, which started from Kanyakumari, has now reached Jammu and today is the 131st day of the 3,900 kilometer long journey”.
Now, she said, the Congress party will run a mass dialogue program ‘Hath Se Hath Jodo Abhiyan’ from 26 January to 26 March 26 across the country to give more comprehensiveness to the “Join India” campaign, which will be led by the Block Congress Committees.”
Under this campaign, by reaching 6 lakh villages, 2.50 lakh gram panchayats and 10 lakh polling booths of India, Rahul Gandhi’s message and the chargesheet against the Modi Government’s failures will be delivered to every household, she added.
She said that the Chhaiv’s recent report revealed that the average income of farmers in the country has been reduced to just Rs 27 per day, which is even less than MNREGA wages. She added, the BJP-led Government promised to double the income of the farmers. But in reality, it was reduced 10 times.
Quoting official figures on farmers’ condition, she said that the shocking fact is that on an average every farmer in the country has a loan of Rs 74,000. On the one hand, the Government refuses to waive off the farmers’ loans, on the other hand, the parliamentary committee has revealed that in 2020-21, the Modi Government reduced the corporate tax by Rs 1,84,000 crore, she outlined.
