New Delhi: The Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday began his ‘kisan Padyatra’ in Uttar Pradesh, saying that while Prime Minister Narendra Modi was busy flying abroad, he and his party Congress would stand by the farmers through thick and thin.

Taking a jibe at the PM, he said, “Modi had promised that during his rule, the country would witness ‘Acche Din’. But we are yet to come across a single ‘good day’ under his regime. Ache Din will come when farmers, laborers and poor are happy.”

This campaign to highlight the plight of sugarcane farmers is apparently planned in the view of 2017 assembly elections.

Meanwhile, the BJP hit back at the Gandhi scion, saying that he would have to prove his innocence with regard to the allegations that his party was involved in “anti-national activities” in Punjab.

Congress Vice President also criticized the UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and urged him to work for the farmers for the rest of his remaining tenure.

Gandhi has been aggressive in his approach in of late. He did not miss a single opportunity where he could target the government, be it on the issue of Dadri lynching, Bihar polls, and Modi’s foreign visits.

It is being believed in Congress circles that a victory in Bihar has proved that Modi is not invincible and with the right approach and strategy flaws in his government can be brought out.

Though Congress is not the actual winner in Bihar, any loss to BJP paves the way for Congress to gain further strength.

BJP had criticized Rahul a lot for his 58-day absence earlier this year, but it seems that they also have given him a reason to hit back.

This government has been in power for hardly 18 months and still there are jitters. NDA has a clear majority and yet they have looked to be defensive in recent past. They have only themselves to blame for their predicament. More than Rahul or the Opposition, it is the BJP themselves that invited trouble on them with all the controversial comments and issues like beef, Pakistan etcetera. BJP has pushed itself on the back foot, giving an opening to the Congress and all of its opposition.

BJP won the 2014 elections on the basis of issue of development but since then the public has heard more of other things than the word they voted for.

The mention of phrase ‘Modi Wave’ in media has but disappeared. Maybe the wave is over or there never was a wave. Either way it is not an ideal situation to be in for the BJP. Bihar election is one big setback where BJP has lost a lot of ground.

Rahul Gandhi has been considered many a things since his arrival in politics. He has been ridiculed, laughed at, but he never has been feared. Neither the opposition nor public gave him a chance. On the other hand, Modi was always feared by his political opponents and he proved them right by winning the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. However, the Gandhi scion seems to be slowly turning the tables on Modi.

With the Winter Session of the Parliament approaching, it is important for BJP to get things right otherwise like the Monsoon Session, the opposition won’t let them work, wasting yet again precious time and public money.

He blamed the Congress for being hesitant to talk on development and always trying to divide the society. He said, “If you analyze last few elections, you will realize how a few political parties have indulged only in dividing societies on religious lines. They give lollipops to a community before elections and then forget them.”
Modi said that this is the working strategy of Congress where they play with the emotions of communities. They act of being sympathetic towards them and then forget about them after the elections.

“They will never give account of their works. They keep indulging in dividing the society. The political purity cannot be established in the country till the Congress culture is finished from the mainstream.” he added.
Slapping Congress for spreading “rampant” lies, Modi alerted the workers not to get trapped by the opposition’s strategies.

“Congress has resorted to rampant lying after a series of defeats in elections. Earlier, the Congress used to spread lies over five to 10 issues they raised. Now out of 50 issues, 40-45 are based on lies,” the Prime Minister said.

Modi did not stop here. He advised his karykartas to hire foreign agencies to deceive the planning of the Congress party. He said that other political parties do not talk about development while BJP fights only on issues. He added, “This was unacceptable to those parties which only concentrated on division. We govern and also fight elections based only on development model.” (IANS)
