Unemployment, farmer distress main challenges before India: Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi unnecessarily attacks PM Modi UP minister

Rahul Gandhi unnecessarily attacks PM Modi UP minister

"Congress ke rashtriya upadhyaksh Rahulji ka Gujarat mae hardik swagat hai...", tweeted Patel, a bitter critic of the state's BJP government.

BJP was confident of winning the polls in the name of the party's national face Narendra Modi, however, the changing political developments in the state speaks otherwise.

Congress leader and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi will start his three-day election campaign in Gujarat's Saurashtra region on Monday and will use a bullock cart after permission for open-jeep roadshow was denied to him.

Saurashtra has been a BJP stronghold for the last two decades and the Congress could manage only a dozen out of the 52 seats in this region. The schedule for his Navsarjan Yatra began with the visit to the Krishna temple in Dwarka, Gujarat. Gujarat Congress chief Bharatsinh Solanki and senior Congress leaders Arjun Modhwadia, Shaktisinh Gohil and AICC inch charge of Gujarat, Ashok Gehlot were accompanying Rahul.

Recently there are talks that the Patidars agitated if being neglected by the BJP are likely to join hands with the Congress. Rahul today tweeted, "Sushma ji, thank you for finally recognising Congress governments' great vision and legacy of setting up IITs and IIMs". Patidars is an important minority community of Gujarat and hold nearly 14% of the total population. "There is a strong undercurrent in favour of Congress in Gujarat".

At Hanjrapar, he interacted with villagers and responded to some of their questions.

"We would want to thank her again for that". Referring to Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's speech at the UNGA where he accused India of violating human rights and state-sponsored terrorism, Swaraj said "We established scientific and technical institutions which are the pride of the world". Much depends on whether or not Rahul Gandhi is able to topple the still invincible Modi-Shah-led BJP from their home ground Gujarat.

"If the government can waive loans given to businessmen, why not farmers?"

Addressing farmers at Bhatiya village in Kalyanpur taluka of Devbhoomi Dwarka district, Rahul said unemployment was high and farmers of the country were not getting good prices for their produce.

"PM Modi imposed demonetisation without consulting anyone". He also addressed the public at different points and interacted with them along the way.

Rahul added that the experiment of demonetisation counter attacked the Indian economy isn such a bad way that it will years for the economy of India to come back on the tracks. He claimed lakhs of businesses have been shut due to the GST.

Rahul while talking to the people aid that the Congress had warned the Prime Ministers of the aftereffects of the implementation of GST. "Today, they are required to fill up three forms every month". "This government doesn't have empathy for poor", Gandhi asserted.

"The government must make sure that people are not deprived of these basic facilities", Gandhi said and promised free medicines and treatment if the Congress is voted to power in Gujarat.
