Rahul Criticizes Modi Again, Justifies ‘Suit Boot Ki Sarkar’


Bengaluru: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday Criticized ‘Suit Boot Ki Sarkar’ and said that government has completely failed to deliver on its promises.

Addressing students at Mount Carmel College in Bengaluru, the Gandhi scion said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed to deliver on its promises.

“Idea of ‘Suit Boot Ki Sarkar’, essentially… if you look at the way the govt is oeprating. The PM has mentioned 2 crore jobs. It’s perfectly ok if are are focussing on promises and you succeed in producing jobs you had promised. India will grow if we concentrate on economic growth and transfer these benefits to poor.”

Gandhi said that government is giving contracts only to big business house and only they are getting benefited by it.

“They (NDA govt) are slashing expenditure on education, healthcare and there are no jobs. They are giving contracts only to big business houses and it is only those who are getting all the benefits of it. Rajasthan CM and her son gave money to Lalit Modi, there was Vyapam in MP, and there is massive corruption in Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra. Corruption has to be removed but the BJP is not doing anything. We have an alliance government with Nitish Kumar in Bihar, which has a good record in term of transparency.”

“The central idea of the PM which I contest is that he believes that country can be run through the Prime Minister’s Office. In the Central government today, I can say with certainty that, there is only one person taking all the decisions. How can one person have all the answers? I want you all to be part of decision making in the country.”
