All India Congress Committee, President, Rahul Gandhi assured that the new GST would protect rights of common men, especially protection of micro and small business owners from economic slowdown, employment for youths, adequate pricing for agro produce and an honest Government if Congress voted to power in Madhya Pradesh in coming elections. The Bharatiya Janata Party Government, in its four and half year regime, had wasted valuable time of the country. The unplanned and unforeseen decisions like demonetisation and GST taken by BJP led Union Government have derailed the country’s economy.

AICC President, Rahul Gandhi was addressing a huge public gathering during ‘Sankalp Yatra’ at Shaheed Abdul Hamid Square, Raddi Chowki, on Saturday.
During the public meeting, he was accompanied by Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee, State President, MP, Kamal Nath, MPCC Election Committee, Chairman, MP, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha), Vivek Krishn Tankha, MLA Tarun Bhanot, MLA Neelesh Awasthi, former MLA, Lakhan Ghanghoria and other eminent Congress leaders.

Lambasting the BJP Government at the Centre, Congress President, Rahul Gandhi said the Union Government has favoured an industrialist Anil Ambani by snatching the work from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) of super fighter planes. He said, to purchase super fighter aircraft for the Indian Air Force, the UPA Government had taken a decision in which 126 aircraft were proposed to be purchased at the rate of Rs 550 crore each. But as the BJP came to power, the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi had secretly signed a pact with the President of France to purchase the aircraft at the rate of Rs 1,600 crore each. On this deal, Prime Minister should clarify the nation that why the hard-earned money of public is being misutilised in this way.

He further said that Prime Minister, Narendra Modi should answer that why he had waived off around Rs 3 lakh crore of around 15 big industrial houses of the country, but is strict in recovering small loans of farmers and poor people. In Madhya Pradesh, farmers are committing suicide. He further asked people that are the promises made by BJP governments in Centre and State fulfilled. He asked, has Government initiated any step to bring back black money from foreign banks and has it transferred Rs 1,50,000 in every account or not. He added that owing to wrong policies of the BJP governments in the Centre and in BJP ruled States, the women and girls are not safe, businesses are facing serious economic slowdown, unemployment.

Rahul Gandhi promised that in coming State Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, if Congress is voted to power, it would waive off farmers’ loan on priority, create employment opportunities for youths, provide safe, clean and secure atmosphere to the industry, so that, more and more employment could be generated and also promised to give new GST. He said that Madhya Pradesh is waiting for change and under the leadership of MPCC President, Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia, Madhya Pradesh would regain its lost glory and prosperity if Congress is voted to power.
