RSS people killed Mahatma Gandhi, says Rahul Gandhi

RSS people killed Mahatma Gandhi, says Rahul Gandhi
He also ridiculed senior BJP leaders for claiming credit for introducing computers in India. ‘RSS people killed Gandhiji and on Thursday their people (BJP) talk of him... They opposed Sardar Patel and Gandhiji,’ Rahul said while addressing a public rally in Thane district.

The Congress leader attributed technological advancement in the country to late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and technocrat Sam Pitroda.

‘When it comes to computers, it was Rajiv Gandhi, Sam Pitroda and other young leaders, (who brought it in India),’ Rahul said.

He said, then the most senior opposition leader in Parliament had questioned saying why was Rajiv Gandhi talking about computers.

‘They had said India doesn’t need computers as it would snatch away jobs. Look what happened, computers have changed India. After 10 years, the same leaders said it was they who gave computers and telecom to India.

‘Similarly, after five-ten years, they will say NREGA and RTI were their creation,’ Rahul said. The Congress vice-president also wondered how it was possible for the opposition (BJP) to do in three months what Congress has done in 60 years.

‘The opposition says what Congress has done in 60 years, they will do in three months. How is this possible,’ he asked.

Underlining the need to empower women, Rahul said, ‘there are 50% women in the country but a proportionate number is not seen in state legislature and Parliament.’

The rally was Rahul’s last public function during his two-day Maharashtra tour which began on Wednesday. Earlier on Thursday, he had an informal meeting with editors in Mumbai.
