Rahul takes dig at PM over poll promises

Amethi, Aug 18 (IANS) Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his poll promises and said his party would force the BJP-led government to roll back any step taken against farmers and labourers’ interests.

Addressing a small gathering here, Gandhi accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government of slowing down the pace of the country’s progress. “They have changed the parameters to measure GDP growth and it is being questioned.”

Referring to the prime minister’s latest announcement of a Rs.1.25 lakh crore Bihar package for changing the face of Bihar, Gandhi said the prime minister moves from one promise to another. “Modiji speaks, people listen and he moves on to the next promise.”

He said the prime minister thinks the world lives on dreams but people shed their sweat to earn a living. “A kind of joke is being made… They are not giving respect to people.”

Gandhi, who is the member of parliament from Amethi, said if the government makes any move to exert pressure on farmers and labourers, the Congress would oppose it. “If they take a step ahead, we will force them to retrace by two steps.”
