New Delhi (LokSatya). Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government is looting the country by increasing the price of diesel and petrol and has caused a crumbling economy, skyrocketing inflation and record levels. Steps are not being taken to stop the reached unemployment.
Congress leaders also hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi as part of the campaign ‘BJP is robbing India’ and said that he is afraid of speaking the truth, asking questions and criticizing. The country is in a difficult situation due to the looting in the government led by him, but he does not care about it.
Gandhi tweeted, “He is afraid of the truth, of questions, of cartoons.” In another tweet, he said, “The country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is collapsing, unemployment at its peak, fuel prices skyrocketing. And in how many ways will the BJP loot the country.”
Vadra said, “During the pandemic, the Modi government collected taxes worth Rs 2.74 lakh crore on petrol and diesel. What could have been done with this money – Vaccine (67000 crores) for the whole of India, oxygen plants in 718 districts, AIIMS hospitals in 29 states and Rs 6000 help to 25 crore poor, but got nothing.
