PM Modi Ridicules Rahul Gandhi’s Poverty Eradication Pledge in Congress Manifesto

National Desk, 14th April: Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered a scathing critique of the Congress party’s election manifesto, particularly targeting Rahul Gandhi’s ambitious pledge to eliminate poverty with a single stroke. Speaking at a rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Hoshangabad, Modi derided Gandhi’s promise, questioning its feasibility and sincerity.

In a mocking tone, Modi referred to Rahul Gandhi as “Congress ke shehzade” (prince of the Congress) and expressed incredulity at the notion put forth by the Congress leader. “The entire country was surprised when he announced that he would eradicate poverty with one stroke,” remarked Modi, adding, “Will anyone trust someone like this?”

The Prime Minister further criticized the Congress for what he perceived as an insult to the impoverished population. “Before 2014, they ran the government with a remote and now he is saying that they got a ‘jhatke wala mantra’ (quick spell)… Isn’t this an insult to the poor? What is he even saying?” questioned Modi.

Rahul Gandhi’s pledge, made during a public rally in Rajasthan, included transferring ₹one lakh to the account of one woman from every poor household in the country if the Congress wins the upcoming elections. This promise, along with other key proposals in the party’s manifesto, has garnered attention and criticism.

Among the notable commitments outlined in the Congress manifesto are plans to fill nearly 30 lakh vacancies in sanctioned posts within the central government, ensuring a national minimum wage of ₹400 per day, providing legal guarantees for Minimum Support Prices (MSPs) as recommended by the Swaminathan Commission, conducting a nationwide socio-economic and caste Census, and abolishing application fees for government examinations and posts.
