Centre's policies based on interests of two industrialists, says Priyanka Gandhi

Udham Singh Nagar (Uttarakhand):

Targeting the Central Government, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday alleged that policies are being made just for two industrialists who are friends of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Addressing the ‘Uttarakhandi Swabhiman’ rally in Khatima, the Congress leader slammed the Central government for making the Budget that offers nothing for the poor, farmers, middle class, small and medium businessmen, ANI reported.

“Policies of the entire country are going on just for two industrialists who are friends of the PM Narendra Modi. When the Budget comes, it offers nothing for the poor, farmers, middle class, small and medium businessmen – they’re nation’s spine,” said Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

“After demonetisation, GST was imposed. Then came Corona. Small traders suffered the most. Whereas these people are the ones who give employment… Tell me, why did they not give you a job, why is there inflation today, but these people come in front of you and talk about religion. What kind of religion is this? The religion of the leader is the development of the people. If they had worked for you, then there would have been a health facility for COVID. People would have got employment. There is talent and resources in this region. But there is no employment. Why so?,” said Priyanka Gandhi.

She further said that all the BJP leaders including the Uttarakhand Chief Minister and the Prime Minister are only thinking about their own development. “What is the biggest duty of a political leader? Serving the people, their development. Today all BJP leaders – starting from your CM to the country’s PM – are only thinking about their own development. Nobody is thinking about you,” she said.

“Why are people forced to migrate out of Uttarakhand for jobs? Because there is no employment generation here. Every section of society is suffering, but the Prime Minister is not ready to listen to their Mann Ki Baat. Migration is high here. Why does it take place? When jobs are not being generated in the state. Your state has everything – the Himalayas, nature, tourism opportunities – but no employment. People migrating out of here for jobs,” said the Congress General Secretary in Khatima.

Congress will definitely come to power in Uttarakhand because the people are tired of the BJP Government, Priyanka Gandhi said.

Hitting back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his claim that Congress spread COVID-19 last year by encouraging migrants to return to their home states, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, “The PM said that Congress helped them (migrant workers) and spread Corona across the nation by doing politics. They were walking on roads, no facilities for them. Would we have left them just like that? Were we doing politics? We were doing our duty.”

The polling for the Uttarakhand Assembly elections will take place in a single phase on February 14. The counting of votes will take place on March 10.
