“The country is battling an epidemic of unemployment, crores of families are left with no means of stable income. But the government is spending billions of rupees just to polish the image of an ‘arrogant king’,” Gandhi said, attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Inflation, ‘Gabbar Singh Tax’ is a direct attack on common person
In the long post addressed to the people of the country, the former Congress chief added, “Don’t consider yourself alone, the Congress is your voice, and you are Congress’ strength. We have to fight with every decree of the dictator, every attempt to suppress the voice of the people.”
“For you, the Congress party and I have been fighting and will continue to fight. You know very well which issues need to be discussed in the country today because every wrong policy of the government is affecting your life,” he stated
Gandhi said inflation and the “Gabbar Singh Tax” (GST) are a direct attack on the income of the common person.
He added that today’s reality is that the common person is struggling not just for his dreams but for his daily bread.
“This government wants you to accept everything the dictator says without questioning. I assure you all, there is no need to be afraid of them and suffer dictatorship. They are cowards, afraid of your strength and unity and that is why they are constantly attacking it. If you face them unitedly, they will get scared,” Gandhi said.
“I promise you, we will neither be afraid nor let them scare you,” he added.
