Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi “Jhooton Ka Sardar”, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday said that the PM has become a master at spreading lies and no one in the country has benefited from the Centre’s policies in the last 10 years.

“PM Modi is destroying the country. Did Modi give 2 crore jobs? He also promised to bring black money from other countries. He also promised the construction of pucca houses by 2022. He also promised to double the farmer’s income. Did Modi fulfil all this? These all are lies which means Modiji is Jhooton ka sardar (king of lies). No one has benefited from his schemes in the last 10 years,” Kharge said while addressing the public at RJD’s ‘Jan Vishwas Maha Rally’.

The Congress chief further appealed to the public to help the INDIA bloc fight in its quest to “save democracy”.

“Tejashwi Yadav fulfilled his promises of giving jobs during his tenure. INDIA bloc fulfils its promises. Help us in our fight against the BJP. Your duty is to save democracy and its constitution,” he said.

Stating that through central agencies, the BJP is trying to instill fear in the minds of opposition parties, Kharge said that Congress and like-minded parties will not bow down before them. He also urged the RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav not to take Nitish Kumar back ever again.

“Today, the INDIA Alliance is facing the BJP on the battleground. Through agencies, the BJP is trying to instill fear in us. This is not possible, as we are not here to bow down before them. Bihar CM Nitish Kumar said, ‘main thode din ke liye bahar gaya tha, main phir wapas aaya hoon’.Those who are not strong ideologically, cannot fight and you (Tejashwi Yadav) should not take him into the party if he returns again,” he said.

Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday took a dig at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and said that the Bihar government should get its insurance done as it runs the risk of JD-U supremo taking repeated U-turns.

Addressing the ‘Jan Vishwas Rally’ at Gandhi Maidan in Patna, Tejashwi said that they (BJP) say ‘Modi ki Guarantee’, but who will take the guarantee of Nitish Kumar?”They call us nepotism but they have Samrat Choudhary, brother of Ram Vilas Paswan, Manjhi ji’s son has been made minister, it doesn’t look like any nepotism to them.”

“Due to the U-turn taken by Nitish Kumar, it seems that the state government should get its insurance done. They say Modi ki Guarantee, but who will take the guarantee of Nitish Kumar,” he said a day after PM Modi accused Congress-RJD of nepotism,” he added. (ANI)

‘India’s unemployment rate double that of Pak’

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday claimed that the unemployment rate in India was double that of Pakistan, adding that this situation has been brought about by the poor financial policies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which have resulted in the “destruction of small and medium enterprises in the country”.

Rahul Gandhi also said that India is even performing worse than Bhutan and Bangladesh on the economic and employment fronts.

Addressing the public in Madhya Pradesh’s Gwalior as part of his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, Rahul Gandhi said, “The country is facing injustice on many fronts. There is economic and social injustice. Farmers are facing injustice. Our country is facing the worst unemployment rate in the last 40 years. India’s unemployment rate is double that of Pakistan. 23 per cent of youth were unemployed in India and 12 per cent in Pakistan. Our unemployment rate is higher than in Bhutan and Bangladesh as well.”

“Our small and medium enterprises in the country have been destroyed due to due to PM Modi implementation of GST and demonetisation,” he added.

A World Bank report released in 2022 points out that the youth unemployment rate in India was at 23.22 per cent, which was higher than its neighbours Pakistan (11.3 per cent) and Bangladesh (12.9 per cent).

Slamming the BJP-led Centre for not taking immediate steps to carry out a caste census in the country, Rahul Gandhi said that ownership of businesses in many prominent sectors is not in the hands of backward classes and the government does not want this fact to come into the public domain.

“Caste census is the X-ray of India. No one should have a problem with it. They (BJP) don’t want the country to know the truth. In the private sector, look at the owners of hospitals and colleges. These owners will not be coming from backward classes. Look at the MGNREGA list and labourers’ data, there you will find adequate representation from backward classes,” he said. (ANI)
