We don’t need govt that makes Hindus fight Muslims: Rahul
In a fresh broadside at Narendra Modi and the BJP, Rahul Gandhi on Monday said the country does not need a government that makes ‘Hindus fight Muslims’ and imposes ideas of one state on another and instead looks for a ‘pro-poor, secular government’.
‘You must ensure that a pro-poor, secular government comes to power at Delhi. We don’t need a government that promotes hate and anger. We don’t need a government that makes Hindus fights Muslims,’ he said while addressing an election rally here.
The country also does not want a government that ‘imposes ideas from one state on another,’ Rahul said in an apparent reference to Modi’s assertions that the Gujarat model of development would be replicated in the rest of the country once the BJP comes to power at the Centre.
Unlike in the past when it has entered into alliances with the leading Dravidian parties, Congress this time is contesting all the 39 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
Rahul said he was happy that Congress was fighting the elections by itself and there was no need for any compromise.
‘I am proud to see our workers all charged up and ready to fight elections and ready to fight under Congress banner. Now we will not have to compromise,’ he said.
