As Lok Sabha elections are underway, all the political parties including Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continue to level series of accusations against each other. Likewise, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of doing "injustice" to the people of the country in the last five years. He asserted that the 'acche din ayenge' slogan has now been replaced by 'chowkidar chor hai'.
Notably, the Congress president was addressing an election rally at Jalore in Rajasthan. He said, "Demonetisation and GST were ways to rob poor, labourers, small traders, Congress' NYAY scheme will benefit them."
"Five years ago there was a slogan 'acche din ayenge'. Now people say 'chowkidaar chor hai' everywhere in the country," the Gandhi scion added.
Rahul Gandhi further said if Congress party is voted to power, GST will be simplified, 22 lakh government jobs will be given in one year and no permission will be required for three years for start-ups.
"Not a single farmer of the country will be jailed for not paying off bank loans if the Congress voted to power," he concluded.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Rahul Gandhi accused PM Modi of protecting the interest of "15 selected people", while ignoring the farmers and the poor. He also repeated allegations of irregularities in the Rafale aircraft deal, which the government has denied.
