“Rahul Gandhi had indirectly attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Shiv Sena Party for trying to chase people out from the state through violent means,” said Digvijay Singh.
Rahul Gandhi, who kick-started the Congress Party’s campaign from great grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru’s parliamentary constituency of Phulpur on Monday, while addressing a rally told the thousands gathered that Uttar Pradesh was regressing under the leadership of ‘the mafia’ who runs the state.
“How long will you beg in Maharashtra (for work)? How long will you work as a labourer in Punjab? It will take only five years and the change will come,” Gandhi told the gathering, while asking them to give the Congress Party an opportunity to come to power in Uttar Pradesh.
He said locals from UP and Bihar seeking jobs in states such as Maharashtra are ill-treated and on certain occasions they are driven out of the state.
Rahul Gandhi is determined to give a tough fight to the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) led by Mayawati in the Uttar Pradesh.
He often visits various parts of the state focusing equally on the lower caste Dalits, Muslims, socially backward classes and marginalised Hindus. (ANI)
