Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday slammed the BJP and the Narendra Modi government saying that it doesn’t care about poor, farmers and Dalits.
In a rally in Banswara, Rajasthan, Rahul Gandhi while addressing farmers said that his party had waived off loans of farmers in Punjab and Karnataka where it was ruling. Rahul Gandhi added that in Uttar Pradesh, the government had waived off the farmer loans owing to the pressure exerted by the Congress party.
The Gandhi scion also said that the Modi government was not allowing Congress leaders from talking about farmers’ issues in the ongoing Monsoon session of the Parliament.
Rahul Gandhi claimed that the BJP only cares about wealthy industrialists and ignores the poor. He called the GST launch as a hasty introduction which showed up as an example of the attitude the BJP has for the people of India.
Rahul Gandhi on the GST launch said: “When we told the BJP wait 3-4 more months to introduce GST, they said ‘no, no we have to do it at midnight July 1’. We told them small businesses will suffer, they don’t care. They just want to run the government for the income tax people.”
The Congress vice president added that big traders would not have problems with the GST as they can hire 10 accountants to fill as many forms as they like but small traders will struggle. Rahul Gandhi said that the BJP and the RSS doesn’t bother about what will happen to small businessmen, labourers and Dalits.
