Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday attacked the policies of the central government and said that unity in diversity is our strength, and the strength of the country will increase by uniting all.

He said “making brothers fight against each other cannot benefit the country.”

Rahul Gandhi was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the three-day National Tribal Dance Festival here in the Chhattisgarh on Friday.

He said: “Without taking everyone together, every religion, every caste, tribal, Dalit, or backward, the country’s economy cannot run. Until all the people of this country are united, until everyone’s voice is heard in the Assembly and in the Lok Sabha, nothing can be done about unemployment or about the economy.”

Rahul raised questions about the current economic situation and the relief given to a select few: “The economy is run by the peasants, labourers, the poor and the tribals. If all the money is given to 10-15 people, demonetisation is done, wrong GST is implemented, then employment cannot be created in India, economy cannot run.”

Appreciating the initiatives taken by the Chhattisgarh government, Rahul Gandhi said: “Here farmers, youth, tribals, women are being heard and are taking the state forward.”

“Together, everyone is taking this state forward. It makes a difference, violence has reduced here, the economy here is overtaking other states. This difference is visible, because nothing can be made by disintegrating, the country cannot benefit by making brothers fight each other.”
