Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who is on a two-day visit to Bahrain, launched a scathing attack against Modi government during his address to the Indian diaspora in Manama on Monday.
While addressing NRIs, Rahul Gandhi said, “There is a serious problem at home, and you are part of the solution. Instead of accepting that we are lacking in job creation, the government is dividing the country on religion basis.”
“People are killed in India because of religious issues, judges die mysteriously, journalists are killed, and the PM has nothing to say,” Rahul said.
Invoking NRIs to participate in country’s development, Rahul said, “Your patriotism is what India needs today.”
Rahul said the global vision for India cannot be built without brothers and sisters living abroad as they send almost 3.5% of India's GDP.
Rahul also attacked the Modi government on increasing incidents of violence in India and said, “We have to make India a centre of ‘Ahimsa’ (Violence) and not violence.”
“I am here to seek your help, we need you to fight these forces of hatred as every single Indian, who is anywhere in the world, is our asset, added the Congress President.
The Congress president also met with foreign minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, Gulf Daily News reported.
“Thank you, Your Excellency, Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, honourable Foreign Minister of Kingdom of Bahrain for being a gracious host at lunch today,” Gandhi tweeted after the luncheon meeting.
