    Rahul Gandhi Slams PM

    New Delhi: 

    Rahul Gandhi, in a sharp attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the government over the farmer protests, said today there was “no democracy” in India and those who stood up against the PM were labelled terrorists, “even if it was (RSS chief) Mohan Bhagwat”.

    “PM Modi is making money for the crony capitalists. Whoever will try to stand against him will be called a terrorist – be it farmers, labourers and even Mohan Bhagwat,” the Congress leader said, referring to the chief of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the BJP’s ideological mentor.

    “There is no democracy in India. If some of you think there is, then it’s in your imagination”.

    Rahul Gandhi was speaking after leading a delegation of Congress workers to President Ram Nath Kovind to seek his intervention in ending the massive protests near Delhi over farm laws. The Congress has also demanded a joint session of parliament to discuss the laws.

    The Congress march led by Rahul Gandhi to the presidential palace Rashtrapati Bhawan was stopped by the police and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and several other party leaders were taken into custody and driven away in buses.

    Mr Gandhi, speaking after his meeting with the President, said the laws would take away the livelihoods of millions of farmers and they were designed to favour “four or five businessmen” who were crony capitalists.

    “What the youth and all the people of this country should know is that the PM is an incompetent man, who knowns nothing. He is an incompetent man who only listens to the crony capitalists. He does whatever they tell him,” he said.

    Thousands of farmers have been protesting since November-end on highways near Delhi against the laws, which the centre says are important for reforms in the agriculture sector. Farmers fear the laws will deprive them of guaranteed minimum earnings and leave them open to exploitation by big business.

    “The farmers and labourers are uniting now. But like always, the moment someone speaks against the government of the day, they are labelled anti-nationals and terrorists. This is unfortunate, but that is what is happening today. People’s voices are being stifled,” said the Congress leader.
