Budget Session: Rahul Gandhi Says PM Created Two Indias – One For Rich, One For Poor
Budget 2022: Rahul Gandhi Says PM Created Two Indias – One For Rich, One For Poor
In the ongoing budget session in the parliament, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi targeted the Modi government and spoke about several failures of the ruling party, including Pegasus Row, tensions with China and high unemployment rates. These are top quotes by Rahul Gandhi in the budget session:
- There are two Indias; one India is for the extremely rich people – for those who have immense wealth, immense power, for those who don’t need a job, those who don’t need water connection, electricity connections, but for those who control the heartbeat of the country. And then another India for the poor. The gap between these two Indias is widening.
- I am very worried about my country standing where it’s standing. You’re putting this nation and its people at huge risk. You (the government) have brought China and Pakistan together. We have made huge strategic mistakes in Jammu and Kashmir.
- You speak of providing employment; three crore youth lost their jobs in 2021. Today India is facing the highest unemployment in 50 years. You talk of Made in India, Start-Up India, but the youth didn’t get the jobs they were supposed to. The one they had has disappeared.
- The Presidential Address was a long list of things that the government claims to have done but didn’t really contain the deeper strategic issues that we would have liked to see. It didn’t touch a couple of central challenges facing our country. To me, it seemed that Presidential Address was a list of bureaucratic ideas instead of a strategic vision.
