“He comes to you and says, you have not done anything. Nothing happened in India for the last 60 years,” he added.
Rahul further said, “US presidents understood that India has risen. Traders, farmers, industrialists, workers have took India forward. India has risen like a tiger and Modi comes to you and says make me Chowkidar. Nothing happened in the last 60 years. Modi says he will make the difference.”
Continuing his diatribe against the Gujarat Chief Minister, the Congress leader said that Modi tells women that they do not have power and he would give them the power.
"He does not have understanding about India. There is no need to give strength to women of India. They have huge strength. Nobody can give strength to the country. It has strength. You have power in your hands, in your heart. Nobody will give you strength from above," Gandhi said
Taking potshots at Modi on the snoopgate issue, Rahul advised him to change slogans on his posters where it was promised that he would give power to women, as ‘he was the person sending police after women and tapping their phone in Gujarat’.
The Congress leader also criticized Modi for his alleged links to Gujarat-based industrial house Adanis.
"We want to fulfill your dream. He shows dream to Adani," Rahul said but clarified that the Congress was not against industrialists.
“If the country has to move forward, then there has to be partnership between industrialists and labourers. Everybody will be part of the development, labourers, farmers and workers," he said.
Rahul further said that BJP leaders' speeches were ‘full of anger but India works on love and not on anger’.
"India is for everybody. It is for Hindus, Muslims, Sikh and Christians. It belongs to every caste and community, poor and rich people and it will remain for everybody,” he said.
