Congress President Rahul Gandhi on day four of his ‘Jana Aashirwada Yatre’ in the poll-bound Karnataka attacked BJP on several issues and said the Modi govt is trying to “bureaucratise” every government institutions.
Reacting to the National Medical Commission Bill, 2017, Rahul said, “BJP is in a process to bureaucratise every institution of the Govt. This is because they have no grasp of the real world.”
The National Medical Commission Bill that seeks to replace the Medical Council of India (MCI) with a new body was opposed by the resident doctors from AIIMS-Delhi and other institution and staged protest.
During his Karnataka poll campaign, Rahul Gandhi also criticised Modi govt for imposing “untested” policies like the Good and Services Tax or GST and promised to simplify the new tax regime if elected to power.
“We asked Modi govt to do a pilot test of GST and urged them to not impose an untested policy on the people. But they did not listen. We will simplify the GST,” the Congress president said.
Rahul also attacked the Centre for its new Pulses Policy that allegedly impacted the farmers of Karnataka drastically and said, “our policies should protect the farmers.”
He said the Modi government doesn’t have any fool-proof solution for providing right Minimum Selling Price (MSP) to the farmers and claimed the MSP was better under UPA than NDA.
“We should provide farmers with right MSP, protect their yield from natural calamities, and improve seed quality. There is no one fool-proof solution for this.
"Data shows, MSP growth was much better under UPA than under NDA. Congress will focus on getting technology into the farm and train the farmer to use it," The Congress President said.
Earlier, praising Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah, Rahul said, "PM Modi loves to blame everyone without delivering on his own promises. He should learn how to run a Govt from Karnataka CM."
