Bhawanipatna :6/2/19: Congress president Rahul Gandhi today launched scathing attack on Modi-led central government and Naveen-led Odisha government describing that both of them are protecting interest of their industrialist friends.
Both of them are working in unison to snatch people’s land to hand it over to their industrialist friends. Naveen remote controlled by Modi is showering money on industrialists, he said while addressing a public rally in Bhawanipatna in Kalahandi district.
While Congress will provide guaranteed monthly income to people is voted to power, Modi government is looting the country waiving Rs 3.5 lakh crore loan of 15-20 industrialist friends at the cost of poor people.
Referring the interim budget, he said Modi will give Rs 3.5 to farmers. The Congress-led UPA (United Progress Alliance) government spent Rs 35,000 crore annually towards MNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act) while Modi has given away ten MNREGA scheme funds to his industrialist friends, he charged.
The Congress party will give minimum guaranteed income to people once it comes to power. No force in the world can stop us from implementing it. We promised farm loan waiver and hike of MSP within ten days of coming to power. But we fulfilled it in two days in neighbouring Chattishgarh. In Odisha congress will implement it immediately if voted to power.
Our promise is not like giving Rs 15 lakh in bank accounts or providing 2 crore jobs as Modi did. We will give guaranteed minimum income, hike the MSP for farmers and waive farm loans, he said.
Modi snatched people’s money from houses by note-bandi (demonetization) to give it to industrialist friends.
“Modi gave you Rafale (scam), we will give you minimum guaranteed income. No power in the world can prevent us from giving minimum income support to the poor. This is not a promise like giving Rs 15 lakh or providing 2 crore jobs”, he said while addressing the rally.
“Naveen patnaik gave you corruption, chit funds. Narendra Modi gave you Rafale (scam). Modi snatched money from your pocket by note bandi and gave it to Viyay Mallya, Nirvay Modi. He gave Rs 30,000 crore to Anil Ambani from Rafale deal. We (congress party) will give it to people that Narendra Modi had snatched from people’s pockets”, he said.
