Congress president Rahul Gandhi Wednesday addressed a massive election rally in Bokakhat under Golaghat district of Assam for the party's Kaliabor candidate and sitting MP Gaurav Gogoi.
Addressing the rally Rahul attacked Narendra Modi and alleged the PM of always speaking lies. "We do what we say, we don't lie…they always lie," said the Congress leader, who aspires to be the next prime minister of India.
Rahul said, "I decided to put the truth in front of the people and asked the Congress think tank to tell me how much money we can put in people's accounts? We came to the conclusion Rs. 72,000 every year in everyone's account."
He slammed PM of making the people of the country unemployed in five years. "Country's youth want to start small businesses. But you need permission and give bribe to start business in Modi's India. But we have promised that no permission will be needed for the first three years if you want to start small business," said the Congress president. He also said that if voted to power, the Congress government will change the GST and give a simpler tax to the people.
"We have committed to pay minimum wages in tea estates, we will fulfill it," said Rahul in Bokakhat.
"This is a fight of ideologies. The RSS, BJP break the country but the Congress unites the nation. RSS and Nagpur are attacking Assam, its history, thinking and culture," added Rahul.
Rahul also said, "If voted to power, Congress will not allow Citizenship Amendment Bill. Congress will restore special status of northeastern states". It will restore special status of northeastern states, bring in industrial policy to make region a manufacturing hub."
