If it had believed in Patels ideology, BJP wouldnt have brought farm laws: Rahul

Ahmedabad: Rahul Gandhi hit the BJP hard on Tuesday, saying that if it had seriously believed in Sardar Patel's ideology, it would not have brought the anti-farmers' Agriculture laws, IANS reported.

Addressing the 'Parivartan Sankalp Sabha' in Ahmedabad, Rahul Gandhi said, "Throughout his life, Sardar Patel fought for farmers, labourers, common man, but the BJP government is acting exactly opposite to his ideology. How can they be called Sardar Patel's followers? They have built the tallest statue of the Sardar but failed to understand his belief, philosophy and ideology."

"Have you ever heard that Sardar Patel had taken permission from the British for protest or agitation?. The BJP claims it believes in Sardar, but in its regime, people have to take permission for agitation and protest, which Sardar would never have tolerated. Had he been alive today, he would have asked you to dethrone the BJP that imposes such restrictions," Rahul said.

He promised jobs to 10 lakh youths, 300 units of power free to general consumers, free power to farmers, gas cylinders at Rs 500, setting up of 3,000 English Medium Schools, and free education to girls. Besides, Rs 4 lakh compensation to the kith and kin of those who died due to Covid.

Further, he pledged to build an environment in which small and medium-scale industries could flourish since only that sector could create jobs according to him.

Later, the leader asked Congress workers in Gujarat to stand with the people of the state, who are facing inflation, unemployment and harassment at the hands of an arrogant government. He claimed that the people were fed up with the current rule, and they wanted to pull the BJP down from Gujarat's power. For that, Congress workers must stand with them, he said.
