BJP turns blind eye to corruption in Gujarat, MP, Chhattisgarh, says Rahul

BJP turns blind eye to corruption in Gujarat, MP, Chhattisgarh, says Rahul
Addressing a two-day national convention, Udaan of NSUI, the party vice president asked its youth brigade to counter the opposition’s smear-campaign of painting all good works done by UPA as wrong. ‘You have to understand the strategy of the opposition of reacting with anger and harsh words at whatever Congress does, even if it is good. They see corruption in whatever we do. But they fail to see corruption in states ruled by them like Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh,’ Rahul said.

‘A tainted (former) chief minister (B S Yeddyurappa) went to jail. Yet they could not see any corruption there and they still got him back into the party fold. And then they go outside and give lectures to Congress on corruption,’ Gandhi said, asking the NSUI workers to spread out in colleges and inform people of the ‘truth’ behind the opposition’s campaign.

Acknowledging that those working within NSUI and Youth Congress do not get enough support from senior leaders in the parent party, the party V-P assured to help them. ‘Elections are coming.

Our effort will be to ensure maximum representation to Youth Congress leaders. In the time to come, we are going to give more representation to leaders from Youth Congress and NSUI.

‘We will give more space to NSUI in Congress party. The country will see the strength of Congress in NSUI. Youths will be more visible,’ he said.

Asking NSUI workers to visit colleges and universities and inform the youths that it was Congress-led UPA which brought RTI, Lokpal and other rights-based legislations, he advised they should counter the opposition propaganda, but not with anger or harsh words.

‘Our focus is never on anger but love and brotherhood. We are a party of Mahatma Gandhi. Our focus is more on work and so is yours. This is in our DNA. You should not let go of it. How much the Opposition provokes you, I urge you not to fall in the trap. You work with love,’ Rahul said.

Maintaining that Congress has ‘opened the closed doors’ of politics and more so in NSUI and Youth Congress, he asked the party’s youth brigade to spread the word that corruption will come to an end only when closed doors of other organisations are also opened through elections.
