New Delhi: Hours after the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party snubbed the Congress in Uttar Pradesh and announced an alliance for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections, Rahul Gandhi on Saturday stressed that his party has a lot to offer to the people of UP. Rahul further said the Congress party might spring a surprise or two in the Lok Sabha Elections in Uttar Pradesh.
“I have tremendous respect to the leaders of BSP and SP, they have a right to do what they want to do. Congress party has tremendous to offer to the people of Uttar Pradesh. We might give a surprise or two to the people in Uttar Pradesh about what the Congress party is capable of doing and to mobilise people,” he said while addressing the press in Dubai where he is on a visit.
Rahul said it was for his party to strengthen its base in Uttar Pradesh and fight the elections with full force. “BSP and SP have made a political decision. It’s on us on how to strengthen the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh and we will fight with our full capacity,” the Congress president told the press.
Attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party, Rahul said the ruling party was hell bent on destroying India’s institutions. “The BJP is very aggressive; it is becoming intolerant and is destroying our institutions. This is a temporary problem; we will look at all this after the 2019 elections,” he said, indicating his confidence about winning the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“Mr Modi is attacking the strength of India by strangling our institutions. We will start to do what Congress party has successfully done; put India on an economic path,” he stated.
“Priority today is that current government is failing and we have a massive unemployment crisis. Demonetisation by PM Modi was a rash and irresponsible action. He was directly responsible for the decimation of informal sector,” he said further.
Rahul said his party, after it wins the 2019 elections, will put an end to the anger that is among the masses.
“India is facing a 14-year low with regard to investments. A couple of ill-advised economic policies like Demonetisation and GST have vitiated the atmosphere. We will put an end to the anger that has been spread by BJP,” Rahul said.
