RAIPUR, Sept 2: Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday accused the BJP-led Centre of working
for the welfare of 2-3 billionaires of the country and said states governed by his party will have the
“government of the poor” and not the “government of Adani”.
Addressing a convention of Rajiv Yuva Mitan Club at Mela Sthal in poll-bound Chhattisgarh’s Nava
Raipur, Gandhi said the country cannot progress with hatred and violence. It will march ahead by taking
everyone together with love, he said.
Rajiv Yuva Mitan is a scheme of the state’s sports and youth welfare department.
The Wayanad MP claimed that the BJP calls tribal communities ‘vanvasi’ instead of ‘Adivasi’ because it
does not want them to come out of the forest and fulfil their dreams in various sectors.
Referring to a few recently published newspaper articles against industrialist Gautam Adani, Gandhi
said, “The PM should tell the people of Chhattisgarh and the country why he doesn’t want a probe
against Adani.. I want to make it clear why he does not want a probe as it will cause harm to someone
else, not Adani.”
He accused the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of working in the interest of 2-3 billionaires.
“Be it in Karnataka, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh or upcoming governments of our party in
Telangana and Madhya Pradesh, our government will be the government of the poor and not the
government of Adani,” he said.
Further hitting out at the BJP, he accused the opposition party of spreading hatred and violence,
asserting that the Congress’ work is to open ‘mohabbat ki dukaan’ (shops of love) in the ‘nafrat ke
bazaar’ (market of hate).
Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel was present on the occasion. (PTI)
