Rajasthan Assembly Election 2023: Voting is going to be held in Rajasthan on 25th November. Before that, campaigning for the assembly elections is going on. In the same sequence, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, while addressing an election rally in Vallabhnagar, Udaipur, attacked the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that India is a country of love, brotherhood and respect.
Attacking BJP, he said, “First of all there should be a caste census. Everyone’s number will be known. After the day I raised the issue of caste census in the Lok Sabha, Narendra Modi’s voice completely changed. The question is why BJP spreads hatred in the country. Why doesn’t BJP talk about inflation and unemployment?
‘Caste Census X-ray of the country’
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday raised the issue of caste census and terming it as an ‘X-ray’ of the country, he said that if Congress comes to power in Rajasthan, it will conduct caste census in the state and if the party forms the government at the Centre, then it will conduct caste census at the national level. But will also do this. Addressing an election rally in Vallabhnagar, Udaipur, the former Congress president said, “If it is not known whose population is what, then how will we talk about participation.”
He said, “If we are talking about rights and participation, then we will have to find out how many people belong to which caste and society.” We call this caste census. Caste census is the X-ray of the country. It is necessary to get this done. He said that if Congress comes to power in Rajasthan, caste census will be conducted in the state and if the party forms the government at the Centre, it will do the same at the national level.
Talk about protecting tribals
Rahul Gandhi also said that the Congress party will protect the rights of the tribals. He said, “As long as the Congress party is there, we will protect the rights of the tribals.” Standing with you, we will provide education to your children, provide you free health care and we will get you your rights on water, land and forests.
Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding industrialist Adani, he said, “What does a pickpocket do?” The pickpocket first diverts your attention, from the other side some other person comes and picks your pocket. So Narendra Modi ji’s job is to divert your attention, from behind he cuts Adani’s pockets. This is the team.
