Rahul compares Modi to Hitler, says no need for such watchman

Aggressively attacking Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi on his home turf, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the state government of ‘stealing’ farmers’ land and charged the BJP for stealing credit for schemes launched by the UPA.

Indirectly targeting Modi, Gandhi compared him to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. ‘What kind of chowkidari (guarding) is happening in Gujarat. Lakhs of acres of land are being taken away from the farmers and being given to industrialists. When farmers say something, their voice is ignored. Is stealing the land of farmers chowkidari. This is called theft and not chowkidari,’ said Gandhi while addressing a rally in Balasinor.

Gandhi said it is being publicised in the whole country that Gujarat shines but its sheen is limited to few industrialists and the poor have not benefited. Also accusing BJP of taking credit for programmes initiated by the Congress, Gandhi said the opposition would also claim after a decade for bringing in MNREGA and Right to Food. He said the job of a leader is not to give speeches but to listen to people. ‘That is what my effort has been. I want to listen to you, understand you.’
