Democracy is in danger under Modi government: Former PM Manmohan Singh

Rahul Gandhi Rally

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he never delivers on his promises, The Indian Express reported.

The Congress leader said that the Modi government was willing to waive Rs 2.5 lakh crore loans of a few industrialists but was not ready to do the same for farmers, who were being forced to commit suicide.

He said Congress will win all the assembly elections this year as well as the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Shah also hoped that Congress President Rahul Gandhi should apologize to the nation for his party's efforts to trample over every possible institution in the country just due to their power-hungry nature.

He said Dalits and minorities were facing attack and Modi "does not speak a word". "The prime minister took away the bonus due to the farmers".

Chief Ministers of Congress-ruled states, ex-chief ministers, Pradesh Congress Committee chiefs, Congress Legislature Party leaders, Seva Dal and Youth Congress leaders were also present at the rally.

Hitting out at Modi, she questioned what happened to his "Na khaoonga, na khane doonga (will not engage in corruption myself, nor allow others)" slogan.

In his over half-an-hour address, he targeted the prime minister on the law and order front, besides alleging "double standards" on corruption, "messing up" of the economy and "failure" to provide safety to women.

Rahul crudely compared Nirav Modi to the Prime Minister, saying that while the former has cheated the country and run away with the money of the public, the latter has imposed Demonetization, which has caused a lot of anger in people, because of the broken system that makes it hard for them to access their money.

Sonia Gandhi charged the government with muzzling dissenting voices and dividing communities with an eye on electoral gains.

"Judiciary is passing through an unprecedented crisis".

"Under PM Modi, for the first time in the history of our country, Supreme Court judges have had to reach out to people for justice", Rahul said. Youths who were promised two crore jobs are still unemployed and they know they have been betrayed by Modiji.

"The manner in which the Modi government is functioning, it can also pose a threat to democracy in the country". Today such an atmosphere is being created where the constitutional institutions are being insulted.

On Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) role, Rahul said: "The RSS is slowly taking over our democratic institutions and destroying them from within while PM Modi watches silently".

"Prices of fuel are rising in India despite low worldwide crude oil prices". People trusted him. But after four years what we have is widespread unemployment.
