 Priyanka slams Modi govt for unkept promises 

Terming the coming Lok Sabha elections “another independence struggle”, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Tuesday urged voters to ask tough questions from the government and raise “real issues” facing them and the country instead of getting drawn into trivialities. “Those who make tall promises to you, ask them where are the two crore jobs that were promised? Where is the Rs 15 lakh which was supposed to come into your bank accounts? Ask right questions in these elections,” she said while addressing an election rally here after the CWC meeting in Ahmedabad.

“Irrelevant issues should not be raised. The issues that are to be raised should be about what is most important to you-- how you will progress, how our youth will get employment, how would women feel safe, what will be done for the farmers. These are the real election issues,” Priyanka said, terming voters’ awareness and their votes “their biggest weapons”. “Your greatest weapon is awareness about the realities facing the country, your vote is your weapon. Use it with after due consideration and due discretion. Ensure that it does not hurt anyone.

Cong culture is anti-thesis of Gandhian thought: Modi

Attacking Congress for following dynastic culture and doing corruption, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday said Mahatma Gandhi had warned about this at the time of Independence and had suggested to disband the Congress. The statement has come at a time when top Congress leaders including Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Varda Gandhi were at Prime Minister’s home turf in Ahmedabad for Congress Working Committee meeting. “Gandhi Ji understood the Congress culture very well, which is why he wanted the Congress disbanded,” Modi wrote in a blog on the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s 1930
Dandi March.
Modi quoted Gandhi ji as saying that Congress leaders were only busy making communal adjustments. In 1937 itself the father of the Nation said: “I would go to the length of giving the whole Congress a decent burial, rather than put up with the corruption that is rampant.”
He also accused Congress of creating caste divisions and practising inequality in the country while in power. He also termed the Congress culture as “perfect anti-thesis of Gandhian thought”.
