Congress will win Gujarat Assembly elections this time: Rahul Gandhi
Claiming anti-incumbency against Gujarat’s ruling BJP, top Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday dismissed AAP’s claim that the party was not present for reasons. He claimed that Congress would win this time.
Addressing a press conference in Kothur during Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi insisted that in Telangana Congress will never tie up with Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS) which he called a party steeped in corruption.
“The Congress is fighting very effectively in Gujarat and it will win the elections. Anti-incumbency is very high in Gujarat. PAA is only present in the air. They have no presence on the ground,” he said.
The congressional leader pointed out that the AAP was spending on ads to create buzz when Congress had a strong presence in the state. He, however, refused to blame anyone for the bridge collapse in Morbi, Gujarat, which left more than 140 people dead, as he did not want to politicize the matter, which he said would be disrespectful. the dead.
Eliminate any chance of Congress allying with TRS in Telangana. Rajhul stressed that his party was diametrically opposed to the TRS.
“There is absolutely no question that Congress has any relationship with TRS. The Congress party has made that very clear. The confusion is created by TRS themselves,” he said.
The congressman added: “We are very clear that we cannot stand the corruption, attitude and position of the TRS. The TRS plunders the people of Telangana, snatching land from the Dalits and the tribes.
Gandhi met with farmers and other civil society activists during his Yatra in Telangana and criticized the state’s new land and tax portal, the Dharani. He also took a subtle dig at Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his determination to keep Congress out of unified opposition. Asked about the BRS, he said: “It is welcome to think that he leads an international party, a party that fights elections in the United States, that fights China. The fight is actually between two ideologies. Opposition parties should work together harmoniously to defeat the ideology of RSS and BJP.
Asked about the fight between BJP and TRS in the state over poaching of MPs, he said: “These parties are spending hundreds of crores of rupees. The question to ask is where does the money come from? Obviously, this money comes from corruption. This money is blatantly distributed without any respect for any rules. It shows the similarities between the two structures. These two parties steal public money and then use that public money to win elections. »
Gandhi admitted that while the Yatra was a good stage to connect with the people, it was not a magic wand to solve all the problems of the big old party.
The new Congress President, Mallikarjun Kharge, is expected to arrive in Hyderabad tomorrow and participate in the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
