Rahul Gandhi attacks BJP, says it has weakened India
New Delhi : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked the ruling BJP party with a fiery speech in parliament on Wednesday; in his speech he primarily targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying the "idea of a king is back", and accused the BJP of weakening India.
He claimed that currently there are two distinct Indias - one of the rich and the other of the poor. "The gap between the two is growing," he said in the Lok Sabha.
"You keep talking about Make in India, Make in India. Make in India is not possible anymore. You have destroyed 'Made in India'. You need to support small and medium industries, otherwise 'Make in India' is not possible. Small and medium industries are the only ones who can create jobs. You keep talking about Made in India, New India, Start-Up India, etc. And joblessness is only increasing."
In his speech, he once again targeted BJP government of caring about only big industrialists.
"One person gets every port in India, every airport, tower, transmission, mining, green energy, gas distribution, edible oil. Everywhere there is (Gautam) Adani ji. The entire wealth of the country is going to a chosen few."
The BJP is weakening the foundations of the country, said Rahul Gandhi.
"Ask yourself why you are not able to get a guest on Republic Day. We are completely isolated and surrounded... You have brought Pakistan and China together and this is the single biggest crime you could have committed against the people of India," he said.
"The nation is at risk from outside, the nation is at risk from inside. That is a very dangerous place and I am very uncomfortable with my nation standing where it is standing - completely isolated on the outside, fighting on the inside, institutions captured, states not able to speak to each other. This worries me."
