Priyanka Gandhi hits back at PM Modi; accuses BJP of favouring billionaires

Priyanka Gandhi hits back at PM Modi: Congress national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra responded to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's criticism of her brother, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, regarding the Congress' stance on Adani-Ambani. 

Modi questioned whether there was a covert agreement between the Congress and the industrialists. In her reply, Priyanka Gandhi accused the BJP of showing preference to billionaires and facilitating the transfer of national assets to them.


While speaking to a media outlet, Priyanka Gandhi said, “PM Modi is giving a lot of clarifications in the last few days. PM Modi calls my brother 'Shehzada' but he himself is 'Shehenshah'. He is giving clarifications because people are seeing that the entire country's property has been given to some billionaires. Airports, roads, coal factories, everything has been given to them.”

Responding to the BJP's continuous criticism of the Congress Manifesto, Priyanka Gandhi stated that PM Modi doesn't like it because it mainly talks about specific plans to improve different areas like youth, women, and dealing with rising prices, as well as bringing back the country's wealth.

"PM Modi does not like our manifesto because our manifesto only talks about work, about what we are going to do for the youth, women, inflation, returning the country's wealth back to the people. That's why the PM has been attacking our manifesto from the beginning. They are making such strange statements regarding our manifesto that we have to see for ourselves what it is, and where it came from...What are the real issues of the elections? Unemployment, inflation, oppression of women, the struggle of the people, the problems of the farmers, these are the issues elections should be fought on," Priyanka Gandhi said.

 Brushing off the controversy surrounding Sam Pitroda's remark as "useless", Priyanka Gandhi said, "PM Modi plays full toss on these useless issues. I challenge him to play full toss on employment, inflation, and atrocities on women, only then I will believe that yes someone has played."

Pitroda, in an interview with a media outlet, while reflecting upon the democracy in India said, "We have survived 75 years in a very happy environment where people could live together, leaving aside few fights here and there. We could hold a country together as diverse as India, where people on the east look like Chinese, people on the West look like Arab, people on the North look like white and maybe people on the South look like Africans."
