Rahul Gandhi: PM Modi speaks of corruption but blind to own party's fault
Congress President Rahul Gandhi attacked on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he speaks about corruption while sharing the stage with his own party members who were jailed for corruption.
Chikmagaluru: Congress President Rahul Gandhi slamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said 'PM Modi speaks about corruption while sharing the stage with his own party members who were jailed for corruption', while addressing the public on Wednesday here.
Addressing a rally at Karnataka's Chikmagalur, the Congress chief even reprimanded the Prime Minister's promise made during the campaigning of 2014 General Election.
"I was in Sringeri mutt, 'karmbhoomi' of Adi Shankaracharya ji. There children are taught about religion. Even a 14-year old says Satyamev Jayate, but the country's Prime Minister doesn't understand what that means," Rahul said.
"He said he will put 15 lakh in every account when elected to power, where is that money. Modi talks of Basvanna, but doesn't understand his teachings of truth," he added.
He even questioned the Prime Minister's silence on important issues like joblessness, farmers' crisis and others.
The Gandhi Scion further said that his party does not make false promises like the BJP, rather they 'just deliver' it.
He even raised the issue of Doklam and said, "China is building helipads and airports at our borders in Doklam but Prime Minister Modi is silent."
"Prime Minister Modi comes to Karnataka and talks against corruption, but on the stage with him are sitting leaders, who have been in jail on corruption charges, including the Bharatiya Janata Party Chief Minister candidate," Rahul said.
"When he himself changes the Rafale jets' contract to give benefit to his friends, he doesn't see corruption," he added.
Rahul even expressed gratitude to the people of Karnataka for supporting his grandmother Indira Gandhi when she was facing a tough time in politics.
He said he will channel all the support and power he gets from the reason to stop the BJP and the RSS. (ANI)
