New Delhi:

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said time for change has come and that “time was up” for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Congress chief claimed that the young and the old are voting in large numbers for NYAY, the Congress’ “Nyuntam Aay Yojna” (minimum income guarantee scheme) to eradicate poverty, noting it showed how powerful the idea was.

The Congress has announced that under the scheme, the party, if voted to power, will give Rs 72,000 per year to 20 per cent poorest families in the country.

“Across India, it’s not just young people who are coming out in large numbers to vote for NYAY; older more experienced voters too have understood how powerful the idea is.:

“Modi Ji, your time is up. The time for change has come,” he said on Twitter.

The Congress had announced last month ‘Ab Hoga Nyay’ as its battle cry for the Lok Sabha polls and launched a campaign centred around the theme of ‘justice’ while alluding to the party’s proposed minimum income scheme.
