Rahul Gandhi says that BJP can never rule over the people of Tamilnadu
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked the Union government and said it can never rule Tamilnadu.
“There are two visions of this country. One vision is that it is a union of states, meaning it is a negotiation, meaning it is a conversation, meaning I go to my brother in Tamil Nadu and I say, ‘what do you want?’ and he says, ‘this is what I want’. He then asks me ‘what do you want?’ and I say ‘this is what I want’. It is a partnership, it is not a kingdom. You will never, ever in your entire life, rule over the people of Tamil Nadu. It can’t be done.” he said speaking first from the Opposition side in Lok Sabha during the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address.
He said that there are two Indias, one for the rich and one for the poor, have been created and the gap between them was widening, even as he claimed that the country was at risk both internally and externally.
He said the speech to a joint sitting of Parliament didn’t touch the central challenges facing the country and was a “list of bureaucratic ideas” instead of a strategic vision.
“There are now two distinct Indias, one India is for the extremely rich people – for those who have immense wealth, immense power, for those who don’t need a job, those who don’t need water connection,electricity connections, but for those who control the heartbeat of the country…the gap is widening between the two,” he claimed.
