Congress will fight for tea garden workers: Rahul

Vowing to fight for their rights, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said PM Narendra Modi holds ‘chai pa charcha’ but does not “talk or care” about the tea producing workers who are “languishing” in poverty.

Gandhi questioned the country’s model of development, saying it has space for talks on bullet trains but leaves out the struggle of the marginalised, who give their “sweat and blood”. “It’s sad that the PM talks about ‘chai pe charcha’ but does not talk or care about those who provide that tea or whose tea he consumes. Congress party and I will fight for them,” he said, addressing a protest rally in Delhi over the status tea garden workers in West Bengal.
