LS Polls: Modi obsessed with Rahul Gandhi, says Khushboo

Hyderabad: ”But, you (Modi) talk about building a temple, you talk about voting for Congress is voting for terrorism… these kinds of words coming from the Prime Minister send a message very clear how insecure a man can be,” said Congress national spokesperson Khushboo yesterday.

Speaking at a press conference, the Khushboo stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was obsessed with Congress president Rahul Gandhi. While Congress has been delivering on its promises in the last 60 years and ensured that the country was one of the strongest, Modi-led government never intended to serve the people and instead was helping its crony friends and making money within these five years of its term, she slammed.

Under the Congress-led UPA government, Rs 72,000-crore farm loan was waived off and farmers’ loans were written off in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, and there were no false promises, no lies, no empty talk and no ‘jumlabazi’, she added.

The BJP’s manifesto, which includes scrapping of Article 370 that gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, scrapping Article 35-A which says no outsider can own property in that state, and constructing the Ram temple is merely a photocopy of its 2014 manifesto, she claimed.

She further questioned why BJP had not scrapped Article 370 in the last five years when it was in alliance with the PDP. “The Congress-led UPA will win and we will come up with a magic figure and we are forming the government at the Centre…in Telangana we are looking forward to (win) eight or nine seats,” she said when asked about the number of seats the Congress would win in the coming Lok Sabha elections.
