Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi who has been on a slamming spree at PM Modi over his policies said Start-Up India is welcome for the economy but it can’t be followed by “Shut up India”.
Rahul, while speaking at the 112th annual session and PhD Annual Awards for Excellence 2017 in Delhi said, the trust in BJP government is dead as it doesn’t believe in people of the country.
He said Prime Minister Modi has unleashed his powers from his very big chest and a very small heart.
He also accepted that there were shortcomings in Congress' previous government and promised to have much more decentralised a new government of his party.
Here are the top quotes from Rahul Gandhi’s speech:
# 'Start Up India' is welcome for the economy but it cannot be accompanied by 'Shut Up India'. Imperative for government to listen to you, trust you, believe in you.
# Globally India is being asked again and again if it still believes in its values of compassion and non-violence.
# People once looked up to us for our values&leadership, today they laugh as we're busy debating whether Taj Mahal was actually built by Indians.
# Modi ji and his Govt have fired a double tap at the heart of our economy-Notebandi and then GST, has crippled our economy.
# In a couple of weeks from now, we'll observe the death anniversary of Rs 500 & Rs 1000 notes; Nov 8 is the Barsi of Notebandi.
# All cash is not black, all black is not cash. PM unleashed his powers from his very big chest & very small heart: Rahul Gandhi
# GST as this Govt has formulated it, has already unleashed a Tsunami of tax terrorism and it is only going to get worse: Rahul Gandhi
# I am admitting that there were shortcomings in our government towards its closing days but a new government of Congress would be a much more decentralised, that distributes power much more than even the last one.
# I exercise, run, swim & also hold a black belt in Aikido (Japanese martial art) but I never speak of these in public. Sports is important in my life.
