Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday launched a scathing attack against PM Modi over growing incidences of violence in the country. While addressing a rally in Kerala's Sultan Bathery, Rahul Gandhi said that there is a reason for the breakdown of institutional structures, a reason that people are taking law into their own hands. It is because the man who is running this country believes in violence and indiscriminate power.
Earlier Rahul Gandhi also took a jibe at Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman over the issue of onion prices, saying none asked her what she eats, but people wanted to know why the economy was struggling. On Wednesday when asked by an MP if she ate onions, the prices of which had skyrocketed in the country, Sitharaman had told the Parliament: "I belong to a family which does not eat onion and garlic." Speaking at a leadership meet of the Congress, Gandhi said: "Nobody is asking you whether you eat onions. You are the FM and we are asking why the economy is struggling.
Even if you ask the poorest person you will get a sensible response," he added. The Congress MP from Wayanad alleged Prime Minister Narendra Modi had destroyed India's greatest strength, its economy. "We believe in the voice of our people but Narendra Modi believes in his own. He did not ask any shopkeeper about demonetisation, he did not ask farmers or anyone about it.
He destroyed Indias greatest strength, its economy. He did the same with GST. Now you look at how the ridiculous the situation is?" Gandhi asked.
