Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed the BJP government on Monday and said that Gujarat has become the center of drugs.

“Gujarat has become the center of drugs. All drugs are moved from Mundra port but your government doesn’t take any action. This is the Gujarat model. Gujarat is one state where you have to take permission before protesting; permission from those against whom protest will be done,” Rahul Gandhi said.

Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said farmers’ debts up to Rs 3 lakhs will be waived off in Gujarat if Congress comes to power in the state.

“Sardar Patel was the voice of the farmers… BJP on one side makes his tallest statue and on the other side, works against people for whom he fought… if we come to power in Gujarat, we will waive off farmers’ debts up to Rs 3 lakhs,” Gandhi said in Ahmedabad.

Earlier on Sunday, Congress former president Rahul lashed out at the Narendra Modi-led government and said Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is dividing the country. Rahul said, “Their future, inflation and unemployment, and that’s turning them towards hate.”

“Hatred is rising in India. Fear of inflation and unemployment is increasing in India, and due to this hatred is rising. BJP and RSS dividing the country and creating fear in the country. Who gets the benefit of this fear? Is it poor, farmer, or small traders who are getting any benefit from the Narendra Modi government? Only two industrialists in the country benefitting from this fear and hatred,” Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said.

Hitting at the Modi government’s policies Rahul said, “BJP giving all the benefits to two people. Now see Narendra Modi did demonetization. Did it help the poor? The three farm laws that were withdrawn later by the govt were not for farmers but it was for those two industrialists only. But the farmers came on the road and showed their power to Narendra Modi and when PM Modi saw this, he had to take back the three farm laws.”

Moreover, Rahul said that the Modi-led government has broken the backbone of small and medium enterprises.

“In one way, you are being affected by unemployment and secondly, you are hit by the price rise. Narendra Modi asks what has Congress done in seventy years. I will say this, that in seventy years, Congress has not shown such a price rise to the country and when the Opposition wants to raise the issue in Parliament then Narendra Modi’s government doesn’t allow it. Whether it is farmers’ issue or China,” Rahul Gandhi added.

However, Rahul Gandhi also spoke about the misuse of Central probe agencies.

“The ED asked me to sit for 55 hours but I am not afraid of your ED. Whether it is 55 hours or five months or five years,” Rahul Gandhi said.
