Bullet Train Suits Only PM Modi’s ‘Suited- Booted Friends’, Says Rahul Gandhi In UP

LUCKNOW: Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the second time in two days, Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi said the tickets for the bullet trains promised by him will not be less than Rs. 10,000 and that “only Modi ji and his suited booted friends” will travel in it.

The Congress Vice-President on 29th July, 2016 while reminding the Prime Minister of his promise of bringing down the prices of essential vegetables and pulses called him ‘arhar Modi arhar Modi’, taking a jibe at the BJP slogan ‘Har Har Modi’ used during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Shri Rahul Gandhi also said that the bullet trains would be out of bounds for common people.”Modi says he will bring a bullet train, which will cost around Rs. One lakh crore. When the entire Railway budget is Rs. 1.40 lakh crore, he wants to bring one train for Rs. one lakh crore,” Congress Vice President, Shri Rahul Gandhi told party workers in an interactive session in Lucknow.

“For whom is he bringing bullet train...what will be the cost of its ticket. It will not be less than Rs. 10 to 15 thousand...it will be for Modi and his suited-booted friends,” Congress leader Shri Rahul Gandhi told the booth level workers at the Ramabai Ambedkar Rally ground.

Congress only speaks the truth and it does not make false promises like the RSS, BJP, BSP and SP, he said, adding that his party fulfils its promises. Shri Rahul Gandhi asked the public how many jobs have been provided by the ‘babbar sher’ (Make in India logo)?

“You can bring out any two who have been given employment by ‘babbar sher’,” he said, reminding that the mobile phone in the pockets of workers which has changed their lives and through which they take selfies has not been provided by PM Modi but by the Congress government.

Taking a question on dearth of resources for party workers when compared with other parties, Shri Rahul Gandhi said it is a reality that his party does not have as much resources as PM Modi but it has lakhs of workers.

“Narendra Modi talks about corruption but how is his party getting this money you have to think about it,” he said.

Congress Vice President Shri Rahul Gandhi also attacked the Modi government for what he claimed waiving Rs. 52,000 crore of big industrialists and said it is not reported in media.

He said PM Modi was working in favour of some three or four selected industrialists. “He first tried to grab your land and now wants to snatch pulses from your platter,” he said, adding that Congress will launch an agitation for the sake of farmers. “Mallya and Lalit Modi fled with money...they say nothing on it,” he said.

“He can do this again...it is our work to check ‘arhar Modi, suited booted Modi but as we waived farmers’ loan you do the same...he has Rs. 2 lakh crores lying with him. We want to stand up and make him waive it off,” he said, exhorting them to come with him to Delhi to exert pressure for it.
