Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of taking money from the pockets of common people and giving it to his ‘crony capitalist friends’, one of whom is the second richest man in the world.

Gandhi, a Wayanad MP, accused Modi of “paving the way” for big businessmen by “pettying” small businesses and entrepreneurs through his various economic policies, including demonetisation and flawed implementation of GST.

He addressed a huge crowd at Paravur Junction in Aluva and was part of the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ as he passed through Kochi city during the day.

“Day 14 of #BharatJodoYatra has seen the largest crowd in and around Kochi so far. It was a sea of ​​tricolors as pilgrims walked 23 kms. The yatra covered 310 kms in two weeks. The response was amazing,” AICC general secretary, communications in-charge Jairam Ramesh tweeted. .

In his speech, Rahul Gandhi said that apart from demonetisation and flawed GST implementation, the COVID-19 lockdown has also adversely affected small businesses, labourers, farmers and other sections of the society, who have benefited from it except a few billionaires in the country.

He alleged that huge loans of big businessmen were written off or declared as non-performing assets, while common people failed to pay their debts, their houses were seized or they were branded as criminals.

“His (Modi’s) job is to pave the way for big business. He has done that by dividing the country and its people, by spreading hatred, anger and violence so that people are distracted from what is really happening,” he said.

Explaining how this all happens, he said, “Modi will divide the country, create anger, take away yours and give it to his 3-4 crony capitalist friends who own the media, hence, promote him on TV and fill his pictures. He can monopolize any business they want on social media and whatever.” confirms.”

“The result is that your money has gone into the pocket of a man who has become the second richest man in the world. This man can buy any airport or sea port, need no permits to do business, can dominate any sector,” he said. added

Rahul Gandhi said that the businessman in question gets his money from public sector banks, which is actually people’s money and should be used to build schools and hospitals.

This has led to the formation of “two Indias”, one with a few billionaires who control all businesses and can fulfill any of their dreams and the other with millions of people, laborers, workers, small businessmen, IT professionals, etc. He said that they are not able to realize their dreams.

He said that when the prices of fuel and essentials increase, when subsidies are not given to fishermen, people should ask where all that money will go and not disappear forever.

Gandhi said that during the Congress regime, money was put into people’s pockets through policies like MGNREGA, but the Modi government is doing the opposite through its economic policies.

“So, people should question where the money is going and that’s what ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is trying to promote, he said.

India became a country that defeated the superpower and gained independence with the doctrine of non-violence taught by Mahatma Gandhi, therefore, he wanted to treat everyone with love and affection instead of anger and hatred.

Nelson Mandela also said he was able to endure his decades of imprisonment and continue the fight against apartheid by following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, he said at the end of his speech.

‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ covers 3,570 km in 150 days. It will start from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu and end in Jammu and Kashmir on September 7.

The Yatra, which landed in Kerala on September 10, will cover a distance of 450 km across the state, touching seven districts for 19 days before entering Karnataka on October 1.
