Rahul Gandhi Slams PM Narendra Modi, RSS At UDF Conventions In Kerala, Says PM Has Not Said A Word About China In 6 Months
Continuing his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the border stand-off with China, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday accused him of ''weakening'' and ''destroying'' the country and claimed that "for the first time" Chinese troops were "sitting inside Indian territory".
On a two-day visit to Kerala, where assembly elections are to be held in the next few months, he virtually kicked off the campaign of the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) and also slammed the ruling CPI(M)-led LDF, alleging their policies have caused ''damage'' to the state.
Addressing UDF conventions at Thana and Nilambur in Malappuram district, forming part of his Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency, Mr Gandhi also alleged RSS was spreading hatred and it was responsible for ''collapse'' of the country's economy.
"You know the damage the Prime Minister is doing to the fabric of the nation. For the first time, Chinese troops are sitting inside Indian territory. Our economy, one the best performing in the world, has collapsed. Our youngsters simply cannot get jobs. This is the result of the ideology of the RSS," he said.
