New Delhi: Continuing with his attacks on the BJP-led Government at the Centre, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said after four years of NDA rule, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “magical train” looks like headed for a “disaster.”
Addressing the Congress Parliamentary Party meeting, Gandhi in an obvious reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi said it is the driver, who is to be responsible for such an eventuality as he is “incompetent” and “arrogant” and does not care for the passengers.
“Four years of Modi rule later, sadly, India today looks more like a train that is being driven to disaster by an autocratic, incompetent and arrogant driver, who does not care what happens to the passengers he is responsible for.”
“The People of India are demanding change. They will no longer be fooled by your magical train that is headed for a bad accident,” Gandhi said.
Criticising the Prime Minister for his “silence” on the alleged incidents of rape of girls in some shelter homes in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, the Congress President said, “What they did against women in the past four years had not happened in the country in the past 3,000 years.”
He also said that RSS, BJP’s ideological mentor, was a “male chauvinist organisation”.
Promising his party’s full support to the passage of the women reservation bill, he said if the Modi government does not bring it, the Congress will do so soon after coming to power.
