Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on Bhartiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and criticised for not fulfilling the promises made to the people and said, ‘Bade Bade Vaade, Zameen Par Kuch Nahi.’

The remarks by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra came while she addressed a public rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi in support of Congress candidate KL Sharma.

Taking a dig at BJP, the Congress leader said, “BJP’s history is the same, ‘Bade Bade Vaade, Zameen Par Kuch Nahi’ (Big Promises, But Nothing on the Ground). Prime Minister Narendra Modi made big promises. He had said of providing two crore jobs, he had said that the income of farmers will be doubled, he had said that he will bring back the black money and deposit Rs 15 lakh in your bank accounts. But the truth is that my sisters are not able to face inflation… My farmer brothers are aware that they cannot look after the family with the income from farming…”

Launching an attack on the ruling government over inflation and unemployment the Congress leader asserted that people would have to take loans to educate and marry their children. “If you want to educate your children, you will have to take a loan; if you want to marry your daughter, you will have to take loan and in the 10 years of governance under the rule of PM Modi, unemployment has increased so much that even if you educate your child, your child will not be able to get any job,” she said.

Gandhi added further, “Today, 70 crore youth is unemployed. Unemployment is at its peak and when PM Modi comes to you, he doesn’t talk about how high the unemployment. He talks about what is happening in Pakistan. He solicits votes by invoking religious pledges but doesn’t talk about the works he has done.

Critiquing the Prime Minister’s remarks regarding Mangalsutra and buffaloes, Priyanka Gandhi remarked, “The post of the Prime Minister carries a certain dignity, and today, Narendra Modi has diminished that dignity.”

The Congress leader also hit out at the saffron party over Constitution and claimed that the BJP is trying to rob the people of their rights. “The Constitution gave the right of reservation in jobs but the BJP leaders say that if they form the government, they will change the Constitution. What does this mean? Will they end the democracy?… Your right to vote, right to reservation, right to protest, right to education, right to employment… all will end.”

Claiming that the BJP leaders don’t respect the Constitution, Gandhi said, “They have tried to weaken the Constitution at every level in the past 10 years. And in these 10 years, they have given all the nation’s wealth to their billionaire’ friends (Adani-Ambani)… They have sold the country…” (ANI)
