Priyanka accuses Modi of destroying the hard work of previous governments
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Sunday that Narendra Modi’s government destroyed in seven years the hard work done by previous governments for 70 years.
âThey ask you what Congress has done in 70 years. I can tell you that in just seven years they have destroyed the hard work done by previous governments for 70 years, âCongress Secretary General said at a large rally in Gorakhpur, the hometown of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
âWe delivered the railways and the airports. They sell them to private entities, destroying the country’s economy.
The Champa Devi park, location of the rally, can accommodate more than a lakh of people. It was packed for Priyanka’s reunion.
Modi has repeatedly claimed at home and abroad that his government accomplished in seven years more than its predecessors had done in seven decades, suggesting that virtually nothing good had happened in India before he did not come to power in 2014.
Priyanka also responded to a general claim by Party Chairman Bahujan Samaj Mayawati and Party Leader Samajwadi Akhilesh Yadav that there was little difference between BJP and Congress policies.
âThe BSP and the SP say that Congress is hand in hand with the BJP. I want to tell you that I would rather die than lean towards the BJP. We will never have a truck with the BJP, âPriyanka said.
âCongress fought with one hand against the anti-popular activities of the BJP government. Rising prices have destroyed people’s lives. Gasoline costs over Rs 100 per liter and the price of the domestic bottle (cooking gas) has touched Rs 900 to Rs 1,000. I want to ask you how you are dealing with this situation.
Priyanka has targeted Adityanath, claiming that her “criminals and police are attacking the public.”
“(Union Home Secretary) Amit Shah told Lucknow two days ago that since the BJP came to power in Uttar Pradesh, a criminal had to be searched through binoculars. I want to tell him to put on his glasses so that he can see the minister standing next to him, whose son has mowed down the farmers of Lakhimpur Kheri, âshe said.
Ajay Mishra Teni, Union Minister of State for the Interior, shared the stage with Shah on Friday during an event in Lucknow where the Union Minister of Interior praised the situation of the public order during the reign of Adityanath.
Teni’s son Ashis Mishra was arrested for murder after a car convoy driven by his father’s jeep Thar, with Ashis allegedly on board, crashed into a mob of protesting farmers and crushed four to death in Lakhimpur Kheri on October 3. Teni had threatened the restless farmers days earlier.
Pariyanka said that while the 11th century spiritual leader Guru Gorakshnath preached unity, Adityanath worked against unity.
Gorakshnath was the disciple of Machchendra Nath, founder of the Nath sect. Adityanath is the current leader of the Nath sect and the mahant of the temple of Gorakhnath, which is said to have been created by Gorakshnath.
Priyanka ended her speech with the cry: âGuru Machchendra Nathji ki jai, Guru Gorakshnathji ki jai. “
