BJP-RSS spreading hatred: Rahul

| | Bijnore/Bareilly

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused the BJP and RSS of spreading “hatred” among people and claimed that the SP and his party activists were for harmony in society.

Addressing a rally in Bijnore’s Afzalgarh area in favour of SP-Congress alliance candidate Hussain Ahmed, he also said  since the Congress has formed an alliance with the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lost his sleep.

The Congress vice-president also alleged that the BJP-led NDA dispensation at the Centre had failed to generate employment opportunities as promised, and “the lion of ‘Make In India’ has failed to provide jobs to unemployed youths”.

Accusing Modi of favouring some business houses, Rahul said when he met the PM in his office, he had asked him to waive the loans of sugarcane farmers, but “got no assurances”. “Instead of waiving farmer’s loans, he had waived the loans of some business houses. If a farmer fails to pay his debt he called a thief but when a businessman, who had taken a loan of several crores, escapes abroad, then he is merely declared as ‘defaulter’,” he said.

Later, addressing a rally in Bareilly, he claimed that the “wrong policies” of the Centre and demonetisation of high value currency notes were responsible for the poor state of small and traditional enterprises, including the local ‘manjha and surma’ industry.
