Rahul Gandhi attacked Indian PM Narendra Modi while speaking in Dubai, criticising the way he is managing the economy, institutions and the Rafale fighter deal. While attacking PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi also made overtures to Pakistan PM Imran Khan.

Asked about overtures made by the country’s new PM Imran Khan, he also spelled out spelt on ties with Pakistan. “I’m all for having a peaceful relationship with Pakistan, but I will not tolerate violence being carried out against innocent Indians,” he said

He asserted that a Congress government at the centre will adopt a tough line on the neighbouring state. “You cannot carry out acts of terror in India and expect India to talk kindly to you,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi then went on to claim that PM Modi was weakening India by “strangling” its institutions. “The RSS thinks that the people’s voice is irrelevant. There is a massive response from bureaucrats and institutions who say we are not going to accept this, and this will be one of the main reasons for our victory in the 2019 elections,” he said.

The priority of the moment, according to the Congress president, is to replace a central government that’s failing on all fronts. “We will start doing what the Congress party has successfully done — put India on the path to economic progress.

At present, there is massive unemployment in the country and PM Modi’s irresponsible and rash decision to impose demonetisation on the people did not help. He was directly responsible for the decimation of informal sector.”

Rahul claimed that “ill-advised” economic policies such as demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax had vitiated the atmosphere, bringing about a 14-year slump in investments. “They broke many promises. We, on the other hand, promised to waive farm loans in 10 days and did it in two. Likewise, we will do everything to give special status to Andhra Pradesh,” he said.

The Congress chief reiterated his charges against Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Rafale controversy. “Nobody can hide from the truth, and neither can our Prime Minister,” he said, citing former French President Francois Hollande’s remark on being forced to award the offset contract to Reliance Defence.

“Everybody knows what happened with the fighter jet deal. Modiji helped Mr Ambani steal Rs. 30,000 crore. I am yet to receive an answer to the question whether defence ministry officials had objected to the Prime Minister bypassing the Rafale deal.”
