This country is not just of those 2 businessmen: Rahul Gandhi
It is our responsibilty to protect our country today. This country is not just of those 2 businessmen. There are two Indias today, one is of the labourers and unemployed who are not allowed to dream. The other India is of businessmen where anyone can dream of anything. They can get anything they wish for. Modi’s idoelogy is pro dividing India and distrubing the benefits with businessmen. Our ideology is that the citizens who work day in and day out should get all the benefits that they deserve.
Media controlled by businessmen who are controlled by BJP: Rahul Gandhi
The citizens of this country are in immense pain. When the Opposition wants to bring this pain to the notice of Parliament, BJP does not let them speak. Media also does not do its work as it is aligned with those two businessmen that supports BJP. All newspapers, all channels are of those two businessmen. The control the media and Modiji controls them. The entire money of the country is in the hands of these two businessmen.

Modi has punctured the spine of farmers and labourers: Rahul Gandhi
BJP exploited labourers, common men with their GST policy. Today even if Inida want, it cannot provide employment to the citizens. Employment is not generated by the two businessmen that BJP supports but by small and medium businesses.
Money of common men misused by Modi govt
‘During demonitisation, money was taken from the pockets of common men and with that money, loans of the most eminet businessmen of India were waived off. They did not waive off the loans of farmers. They brought new laws for farmers claiming they were for their ‘betterment’. If these laws benifitted the farmers why would they protest on the roads?’
Hate rising since Modi government has come to power: Rahul Gandhi
‘You can see what is happening in the country today. Since BJP has come to power, the country has seen a rise in hate and anger. When we say that hate is rising in the country, it implies that fear is rising in India. Fear of future, inflation andunemployment.’

The country is burning, people are worried: Gehlot
This is just the beginning. We need to continue with our protest, send a message to the governemnt.

Ahead of Sunday’s ‘Mehngai par halla bol’ rally of the party at the Ramlila Maidan, Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said the rally was not being held to canvas for the 2024 polls, but to highlight the two “biggest challenges” of inflation and unemployment to the people.

After Azad ended his five-decade-long association with the Congress last month, the party had alleged that his “DNA has been Modi-fied” and several leaders attacked him citing Modi’s speech in Rajya Sabha in February last year in which the teary-eyed prime minister had praised Azad as a “true friend”.
