Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi addresses a Corner Meeting at Poojapura Mandapam, Kerala. Speech Excerpts via INC India:
Kerala is not just a state, Kerala is an idea, a way of looking at the world.
Was demonetisation a humble decision? One evening, the PM doesn’t listen to anybody, turns around and says I am demonetising India’s currency and with his arrogance, he shatters millions and millions of lives.
Few months after demonetisation, without a conversation with anybody, he says at midnight, I am passing GST, and again destroys the Indian economy.
Why are lakhs and lakhs of farmers standing outside Delhi? Because again a decision has been taken with absolutely no respect.
In every single government, where BJP is not present, PM uses CBI and ED to overthrow the government, to attack the government. I want to understand why they are not doing that to the LDF government. It is a mystery to me.
Congress is not just an organisation, it is an idea. BJP is not worried about the organisation, they are worried about the idea. The idea is very simple- togetherness, sameness, respect, affection. The Congress builds on this idea.
The idea of Congress and the idea of Kerala share many many things- mutual respect, affection, togetherness, conversation, belief in other people and the ability to see someone else’s pain.
The BJP and the RSS know that the day there is togetherness, affection and the ability to see each other’s pain, the BJP and RSS are gone.
The BJP has destroyed India’s biggest strength, our economy. How dare they come here asking for votes? They have made us a laughing stock in front of the rest of the world.
Kerala is going to be the first state in India that is not going to have a single poor person after the UDF government comes to power.
