Congress President Rahul Gandhi, addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday, launched an attack on his opponents in the state, the  ruling BJP and the formidable SP-BSP alliance. 
Gandhi, directing his remarks at the BJP, accused the saffron party of “allowing businessmen who took loans amounting to thousands of crore to flee the country”, hinting at Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi. He went on to say that poor farmers, who were indebted with small loans of Rs.20,000, were sent to jail, whereas the aforementioned businessmen were not convicted. 
The Congress President also referred to the demonetisation move of 2016, which “took away people’s money”. Gandhi promised that if the Congress came to power, they would use that money to help the farmers and the poor in need. 
He spoke about the grand old party’s recent victory in the Assembly elections of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, where the party “fulfilled its promise of farm loan waivers”. 
Talking about PM Modi’s tall claims in 2014, where he had promised to abolish unemployment from the nation, Gandhi claimed that the unemployment ratio, under Modi’s tenure, has been the highest in 45 years. 
Attacking the Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav alliance, the three-term MP bashed them for not condemning the BJP, accusing them of having “their keys with Modi”. 
In a reference to the recently released party manifesto, Gandhi assured the people of being provided with  an annual income of Rs. 72,000, under the proposed minimum income guarantee scheme ‘NYAY’. 
He ended the speech by giving the people two options- “choose between truth and lies, between nyay and anyaay”.
