Rahul Gandhi, the Indian National Congress (INC) chief, on the 7th of February, took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and criticised him over the Rafale deal.

Mr. Gandhi addressed the National Convention of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) Minority Department in Delhi. The convention was held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, where Gandhi challenged Mr. Modi to a debate regarding the Rafale deal.

Gandhi said, “Narendra Modi is a ‘darpok’ (coward) person. He will run away from debate on national security.” He further said, “If someone stands up to him, Modi runs away.”

Rahul Gandhi went on with his criticism and said, “The institutions in India do not belong to any party, they belong to the Country, and to protect them is our responsibility, be it Congress or any other party. They (BJP) think they are above the nation, in 3 months they will understand that Nation is above them.”

Gandhi appealed to the public to vote for the INC in the Lok Sabha elections and promised income to the poor. Mr. Gandhi said, “Narendra Modi can give Rs 3.5 lakh crore to his 15 industrialist friends, the Congress will guarantee minimum assured income to the poor of the Country.” He said, as a part of the Minimum Income Programme, the INC, if elected to power, will credit a certain amount to the bank accounts of the poor.

Mr. Gandhi, confident about the victory of the INC, said, “In 2014, Narendra Modi’s image was such that they said he will rule for 15 years…In five years, the Congress has exposed him on every front, be it the issue of farmers, corruption or national security…The Congress will defeat Narendra Modi, the BJP and the RSS in 2019.”

He also took a jibe at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and said, the RSS is the main face behind the BJP. He said, if the BJP, which is ‘remote controlled’ by the RSS, wins the elections, the RSS will indirectly rule the Nation.

The Lok Sabha elections are scheduled between April and May 2019. The major parties contesting are the INC and the BJP.
