Rahul's big push at small venue

Rahul's big push at small venue

 Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday attacked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for making false promises—of providing free water, cheaper electricity and regularisation of contractual jobs—to the people of Delhi, speaking at an election rally where the party supporters came in half-filled buses.

He also took a dig at the BJP for delaying their manifesto.

In the South Delhi constituency, the event was organised at a ground not suited for “massive rallies”, as projected by the state Congress unit. “Haven’t you made the ground too small?” quipped Gandhi.

Addressing the supporters, he said despite 15 years of developmental work in the city, the people of Delhi gave his party “a message” in the Assembly election—that the Congress needs to “open doors”.

He said after the Lok Sabha elections, the party will restructure itself to promote accessibility and youth leadership.

Gandhi said the Congress had extended support to the AAP in forming the state government as it felt the new party had got the support of people. “But they fled the government,” he said.

Hitting out at Arvind Kejriwal’s 49-day rule, Gandhi said the AAP had failed to make budgetary provisions to ensure cheaper electricity and free water. “Policies are made for entire years, not three months. It is easier to make promises,” he added.
The Congress vice-president also made a national pitch at the rally. “There is one person who knows about the entire world. The day he will come, everything will become better. This is their thinking,” he said.
