GIVE COUNTRY SOLUTION AND NOT HOLLOW SPEECHES: RAHUL
NEW DELHI: The crisis in the country is not just due to coronavirus but also because of “antipeople” policies of the central government, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Thursday, and called for a solution instead of hollow speeches.
He also attacked the government, alleging it has brought destruction and has turned the middle-class poor.
The Congress has been targeting the government over its management of the COVID-19 situation in the country.
“I am quarantined at home and sad news is constantly coming in. The crisis in India is not just due to Corona, but due to the anti-people policies of the central government. Don’t give false celebrations and hollow speeches, give the country a solution,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
In another tweet, he said, “The poor are not just a number – they are living people and hundreds of helpless families. Crushing the middle-class and turning them poor, the BJP government has shown how destruction can be done.”Gandhi also cited a media report claiming that India has been added to the list of countries having collective poverty after a span of 45 years.
The Congress leader tested positive for COVID-19 this week.
