Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of spreading hatred in the society.

She claimed that PM Modi’s truth has come out before the people as he can’t seek votes on the basis of his performance.

“He seeks votes only in the name of religion. He only spreads hatred in the society for his political gains,” she said. On the last day of the election campaign in Telangana, she addressed the public at Tandru in Chevella constituency and a roadshow in Kamareddy in Zaheerabad constituency.

She said if PM Modi had worked, laid roads, built schools, hospitals and industries, he would have sought votes on the basis of these issues. She alleged that, in 10 years of his rule, PM Modi did nothing for the poor, farmers, workers, women and small traders. “What has he given you? Demonetisation, GST, price-rise, unemployment and the gift of hatred,” she remarked.

Asserting that the country was formed on the basis of love, non-violence and truth, the Congress General Secretary said that all countrymen are brothers and sisters.

She also accused PM Modi of giving away the country’s resources to a few friends. “He waived off loans of 16 lakh crore of a few billionaires,” she said. Priyanka Gandhi said the people of the country have awakened. “They don’t want hatred. They want employment and development. Farmers need support, women need to stand on their feet and workers need fair wages,” she said.

The Congress leader appealed to people to bring a change. “Tell Modiji and his every candidate that enough is enough. We don’t need your government. We don’t need your anti-constitutional ideology,” she said.

“Bring a government which can re-establish politics of honesty and democracy. Send a message from here that we will save democracy and Constitution and fight to protect reservation,” she added.

The Congress leader urged people to bring a government which does not misguide them but serves them. “You have to decide whether you want a leader who never went to a poor’s house or a leader who walked 4, 000 km and met the poor. Do you need a leader who utters lies or a leader who never retreats from the path of truth,” she said.

With Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy by her side, she asked people if they were happy with his government. She said the Congress has given more guarantees in Lok Sabha elections. Eldest woman member of every poor family will get Rs 1 lakh every year. There will be the legal guarantee for MSP for farmers. For the educated unemployed, the government will come out with a scheme Pehli Naukri Pakki, she added.

‘PM cries like a child on his problems’

Meanwhile, launching a broadside, Priyanka accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “crying like a child on his problems rather than spelling out steps to wipe the tears of the suffering masses”, in Nandurbar on Saturday.

Addressing a large tribal gathering during a rally in the Nandurbar (ST) Lok Sabha constituency in Maharashtra, Priyanka said it has become a norm for PM Modi to rave and rant about his problems on the dais during election rallies instead of discussing how he will resolve the peoples’ burning issues.

“Modiji remembers the tribals only during elections when he comes to seek their votes. He claims to fight corruption alone — but how can he be a loner? He has the entire government, its machinery, and agencies behind him. Instead of talking about what the BJP government did in the past 10 years, he comes on the stage and weeps, saying people are abusing him,” she said.

The Congress leader also reminded the PM that he is in public life and should take inspiration from her grandmother (former Prime Minister late Indira Gandhi), who displayed her “Goddess Durga” strength and “chopped Pakistan into two pieces”.

“Show some courage, Modiji…Learn from my grandmother and her sacrifices. But you cannot because you label that great martyr as a ‘traitor’. Your words as a PM lack weight. The post of PM was always held in high esteem and occupied by great leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Manmohan Singh… Look at the level you have reduced it to,” Priyanka said.

The Congress leader also recounted the problems faced by the tribals, Dalits, and poor families all over India, the atrocities on women in Manipur, tribal areas, Uttar Pradesh, among others, claiming, “But at all times, Modiji chose to keep mum and even supported the perpetrators of such heinous crimes.”

“Modiji is cut off from the people… He has no inkling of how the poor are trying to survive amid the massive inflation, the horrors the womenfolk face.. women who work outside the whole day, then come home and do the household chores, and look after the entire family,” she said.

“In these times of high prices, the women are unable to feed their families properly, or get medical care if anyone at home falls sick, they have no money for their children’s education, or to marry off their daughters… They take loans for these needs and get caught in the debt-trap, with many committing suicide,” Priyanka said amid loud cheers from the crowd.

She also claimed that rather than providing solutions or help to the masses, the Modi government is working against the interests of the ordinary people, who have continued to suffer in the past 10 years of BJP rule.

“The PM has waived loans worth Rs 16 lakh crore of rich industrialists, but did not extend the same benefits to the poor farmers… He bought two aircraft for his use for Rs 16,000 crore, but did not have money to pay the UP farmers dues of Rs 15,000 crore for their sugarcane. Modiji does everything for self-glory, not for the people… This is the first government that has come to office for power rather than public service,” Priyanka alleged.
