Modi is Involved in Massive Corruption: Rahul Gandhi

In a speech delivered in the Una area of Himachal Pradesh, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi labelled Narendra Modi the “epicenter of corruption.” Gandhi’s remarks came in response to Modi’s earlier statements in Mandi, where Modi claimed that the state’s Congress government was unstable and hinted at its potential overthrow through monetary influence.

Gandhi’s blame centered on Modi’s corruption and the consolidation of corrupt leaders within the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He specifically highlighted the opacity surrounding the Electoral Bond Scheme, condemning the central government of coercing donations from large corporations through threats from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the epicenter of corruption. All the corrupt leaders of the country have joined his party,” Gandhi declared.

Expanding on his economic vision, Gandhi contrasted Modi’s creation of 22 billionaires with his own plan to empower the masses. He proposed a direct financial assistance scheme aimed at women, promising to deposit ₹8,500 monthly into the bank accounts of selected women from every family across the country starting July 5. This initiative, according to Gandhi, would foster economic upliftment on a massive scale.

Gandhi also took a stand on preserving the Indian Constitution, calling on citizens to safeguard it against what he perceives as BJP’s attempts to alter its foundational principles. He assured that Congress party workers, whom he described as “Babbar Sher” (fearless lions), would resist any such moves by the BJP.

Addressing the agrarian sector, Gandhi pledged to introduce legislation ensuring a Minimum Support Price (MSP) for farmers, alongside committing to waive off their loans. He pointed to the discontent among apple growers in Himachal Pradesh, attributing their financial struggles to Modi’s favoritism towards industrial magnates like the Ambani and Adani families. “Today, apple growers in Himachal Pradesh are disappointed because they have not been able to get good prices for apples due to PM Modi’s shelter to families like Ambani-Adani,” he asserted.

Gandhi also mentioned the privatization of defense manufacturing, noting that armaments previously produced by the Indian Ordnance Factory are now contracted to companies like Adani. Similarly, he decried the leasing of seven major airports to private firms for 50 years, a move he believes undermines national interests.

In a particularly forceful statement, Gandhi condemned the Agniveer scheme, a recruitment initiative for the Indian armed forces, asserting that it was unwanted by the military and imposed by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). He promised that the first action of the INDIA bloc government, should it come to power, would be to abolish the scheme. “We are going to tear this Agniveer scheme into pieces and dump it in the dustbin,” Gandhi vowed.

Conclusively, Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Himachal Pradesh encapsulates his broader campaign against corruption, economic disparity, and privatization policies under the Modi administration.
