Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat says People work hard for development but one man takes entire credit

Rahul Gandhi addresses Gujarat rally: BJP follows RSS ideology that killed Mahatma Gandhi
Bardoli: Rahul Gandhi today addressed a huge rally at Gujarat’s Bardoli and took on the BJP saying it represents RSS ideology which has killed Mahatma Gandhi. He also took an indirect dig at Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and said that while the people work hard for development in the state, just one person takes the entire credit.
“The BJP leaders here talk about Sardar Patel and say they will l make his statue. But these people don't know history. They haven’t read any books on the ideologies of Gandhi ji and Sardar Patel ji. They know nothing. .. Sardar Patel said that RSS is a poisonous ideology which will destroy the soul of India. The BJP leaders spend their entire life with RSS. They neither know about Patel nor they read about him, but want to build his statue” said Rahul Gandhi.
“It was the RSS ideology that killed Mahatma Gandhi. After the assassination of Gandhi ji, Sardar Patel had moved a resolution to ban the RSS. Sardar Patel gave his entire life for the Congress party and fought for the rights of the poor. But these leaders in BJP never read about it, never thought about it but want to build his statue!” he added.
Slamming Modi’s claims on Gujarat development, the Congress Vice President said, “BJP makes big gains in education sector. 13000 govt schools were shut down in Gujarat, but this is never mentioned by its leaders anywhere” and continued, “..In Gujarat, just one person has the entire power. No one else has any power or rights... We want to give people their rights. But here the government runs for selected people. We fight for the people, the farmers, Adivasis and the poor. This is the difference between us and BJP”. “Gujarat progressed due to the sweat of its people, not because of one man's efforts. People of Gujarat worked hard and he takes the credit for it” he commented.
Launching a sccathing attack on BJP’s stance on corruption, Rahul Gandhi said, “Who stopped appoint of Lokayukta in Gujarat? The BJP govt spent Rs 40 crores to block Lokayukta appointment. Modi govt did not let lokyukta pass in Gujarat for nine years. Entire world knows it; entire women know it. Gujarat cabinet has three convicted persons as ministers. Still they talk too much on corruption”.
“I want to make it clear that Gujarat does not have the government of poor people. It does not work for the upliftment of the poor and Adivasis and their voices are not heard. Only handful of people runs the government and works for the elite” asserted Rahul Gandhi.
“While we talk about eradicating poverty, BJP talks about eradicating the poor people. We talk about providing the poor with jobs, food, health and education. Indira Gandhi said ‘gareebi hataao’ but BJP wants ‘gareeb hataao”. This is the difference” further said the Congress leader.
When someone from the crowd made the ‘chaai waala’ comment, Rahul Gandhi immediately shot back, “The entire India does some work. Some make tea, some drive taxi's, some are farmers. We need to respect everyone. We have to respect chai wala, labourer or farmer. Respect everyone.. But not the one who makes fool of us” and the huge crowd greeted it with loud applauds.
