Gujarat: Addressing the ‘Parivartan Sankalp Rally’ in Ahmedabad, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi came heavily on the ruling BJP saying that the government doesnt take any action even after huge amount of drugs are recovered from state’s Mundra port.
“Gujarat has become the centre of drugs. All drugs are moved from Mundra port but your govt doesn’t take any action,” Gandhi said.
Laying down pointers from his Manifesto, he promised loan waiver of up to Rs 3 lakh to state farmers, 50 per cent reduction in the LPG cylinder price, free electricity to farmers and up to 300 units of free power to general consumers if his party comes to power in the state.
He also promised to create 10 lakh new jobs, build 3,000 English medium schools and provide free education to girls.
Earlier on Sunday, Rahul Gandhi came down heavily on the Narendra Modi-led Central government and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) are dividing the country and a sense of fear has engulfed the minds of people about ” their future, inflation and unemployment and that’s turning them towards hate.”
