Rahul Gandhi in Meerut: People know that Congress is committed to serve ...

While addressing an election rally at Meerut as part of his ongoing campaign for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi said that it not the political parties but the people of the country bring development. “I do not make hollow promises as my intention is pure, but will promise you only one thing that a government of aam aadmi like we did it at the Centre” he added. Rahul Gandhi said that the 22 years misrule by the non-Congress Governments in UP ruined the country and dragged the state backwards.
We sent thousands of crores of rupees under MNREGA. But your Chief Minister says that the scheme is of no use. You go to any other places where Congress is in power like Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Kerala or Maharashtra, every poor will vouch for the benefit of MNREGA” he claimed.
“I go to the people to realize their strength. Your hands are tied now. The moment your hands are freed, the state will start developing. For the past 22 years, your leaders never came to you. They were busy looting the public money. The magic elephant in Lucknow gobbles up the funds meant for the poor, instead of grass and leaves” he added.
“We brought MNREGA, gave right to food, sanctioned relief packages for Bunkars and the people of Bundelkhand, waived-off loans of the poor farmers. Please tell me any one such good scheme brought in by the state Governments in the past 22 years” asked Rahul Gandhi.
