Rahul Gandhi, Congress party president declared that a united opposition will defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the upcoming General election. He said that the country is being divided under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rule.
While addressing a protest rally with various opposition parties present at the Ramlila ground, the Congress president questioned Narendra Modi's silence on rising fuel prices, the Rafale jet deal and issues such as farmer suicides and unemployment.
Gandhi added that people showed trust in Modi and helped him form his government, but four years on, people are clearly seeing what he has done. "Narendra Modi used to say that nothing has happened in 70 years and we will do that in four years. It is true, what he has done in four years has not happened in 70 years. Wherever you see, one Indian is fighting another. Wherever you go, they divide people -- one religion with another, one caste with another and one state pitted against the other," Rahul said to reporters.
It is Rahul's first appearance after he came back from the Kailash Mansarovar pilgrimage. he is also leading the Bharat Bandh against fuel prices.
Leaders from different parties were present at the rally, including Trinamool Congress, Janata Dal-Secular, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Nationalist Congress Party, Rashtriya Lok Dal, Loktantrik Janata Dal, All India United Democratic Front, Revolutionary Socialist Party and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
