He said Congress does not believe in creating two polarized nations, unlike the BJP

Congress President Rahul Gandhi has claimed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is spreading “lies and hatred” wherever he goes, and making false promises without giving it much thought.

He made the allegation while addressing a gathering at HUDA Ground Sector 5 on Saturday, organized in support of the party’s Gurugram Lok Sabha candidate Captian Ajay Yadav. 

Gandhi also criticized Modi for calling himself “chowkidar (watchman),” saying the prime minister was the “chowkidar” of tycoon Anil Ambani and not the masses, reports the Hindu.

The Congress president said Modi had promised to provide 20 million jobs for the people, deposit Rs15 lakh into every account, as well as double the income of the farmers, but now the prime minister hesitated to refer to himself a “chowkidar” in his rallies as he feared someone would retort by calling him “chor (thief).

Gandhi further said the Congress does not believe in creating two polarized nations, unlike the BJP which had waived off debt worth crores of rupees of a few businessmen, but did nothing for the youth and farmers. 

He also said that the Congress government had kept their promises in three states and would discount loans for farmers if voted to power. He also referred to the party’s Rs72,000 per year scheme NYAY and a separate budget for farmers.
