Congress wants to do politics for new class of 70 cr people: Rahul

Launching Congress’ Lok Sabha campaign in Rajasthan, Rahul Gandhi on Monday claimed that 15 crore people were pulled out of poverty by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government and a ‘new class’ of 70 crore people has emerged who are below the middle class level and his party wants to do politics for them.

‘The new class of 70 crore people, who are above the poverty line but below the level of middle class, has been created in the last ten years and it includes security guards, taxi drivers etc,’ Gandhi said at a rally in Deoli area of the district.

‘We want to do politics for them in order to bring them up to the middle class level,’ he said. This was Gandhi’s first rally in Rajasthan after the announcement of Lok Sabha poll schedule.

‘We do politics to empower people... to pull out people from poverty, to give them honour, rights, education and employment,’ Gandhi said while promising that his party will not forget the poor. The Congress leader attacked BJP, saying that its leaders are talking about corruption but why they could not see corruption in their own governments in Karnataka, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
