Rahul Gandhi thanks Sushma Swaraj for IIT, IIM remarks

Rahul Gandhi thanks Sushma Swaraj for IIT, IIM remarks

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi after returning from his two weeks long trip to the United States, began his Gujarat assembly election campaign from Saurashtra on Monday. In his address there, Gandhi slammed the Modi government for "failing" to address basic problems of people.

"Modi promised two crore jobs, but his government has been able to provide employment only to one lakh persons across the country". Ahmed Patel won even after the much-hyped exit of Shankersinh Vaghela, a tall Gujarat leader from the Congress camp, making it evident that the Assembly elections are likely to witness a solid fight for the ruling BJP.

Gandhi was accompanied by Gujarat Congress president Bharatsinh Solanki and state party in-charge Ashok Gehlot during his Dwarkadhish temple visit.

In addition, Gandhi's campaign comes days after PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the Sardar Sarovar Dam as well as signed the bullet train agreement with Japan's Shinzo Abe. "They (businessmen) will get all the benefits, while you (farmers) will be jailed for not repaying loans", said Gandhi.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday poked fun at Prime Minister Narendra Modi in wake of violence which occurred in BHU and said though Centre's policy is "beti bachao -beti padhao" but when a girl stands up for her rights, her voice is curbed. In fact, PM Abe nearly campaigned for PM Modi just three months before the Gujarat polls in a joint road show that became the talking point of the day, as well as the butt of ridicule on social media for its apparent opportunism.

A controversy also broke out when in 2014 October the death anniversary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was a low key affair instead the government celebrated birthday of Sardar Patel. This was a massive blow to our economy. Gandhi also held talks with traders and small shopkeepers.

"Sushmaji, thank you for finally recognising Congress governments' great vision and legacy of setting up IITs and IIMs", said Gandhi on Twitter.

He added, "Kisi bhi pradesh mein chaley jao, Gujarat mein, Uttar Pradesh mein, Rajasthan mein, yuvaon ko Hindustan mein aaj rojgar nahi milta (Go to any state, be it Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, the youth in Hindustan don't get jobs)".

Tomorrow, he will visit towns such as Dhrol and Tankara by road before reaching Rajkot.
