Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi asked the public at a meeting with booth workers in Delhi, “Do you want Mahatma Gandhi's India - where there is love, harmony - or Godse's India, where there are fear and hatred?”
While lashing out at the BJP government, the Congress chief said that Mahatma Gandhi was "fearless" and never demonstrated bitterness despite spending years in jail while his assassin Nathuram Godse spread "fear" and "hatred" in the country while asserting at BJP.
He then drew a comparison between Mahatma Gandhi and Veer Savarkar by saying that, "Our leaders fought bravely against the British, yet they spread love and harmony. On the other hand, "Veer" Savarkar wrote mercy petitions to British.”
Savarkar has been often praised by the BJP and the Shiv Sena in political speeches.
Being confident that his party will be forming government at the Centre in the coming elections, he slammed BJP over rising fuel prices, amongst plenty other issues.
He shared a video of the meet on Twitter where he claimed that under Modi government, "unemployment is the highest in 45 years".
“I was happy to address our Congress Party Polling Booth Workers in Delhi this evening. Their energy & enthusiasm convinces me that the Congress party in Delhi will do extremely well in the general elections.”
Lastly, he then said at the meet that 5 years ago, Chowkidar (Modi) claimed he wanted to fight corruption. He said he wanted to make it a 'Congress-mukt Bharat'. Today, the slogan of 'Acche Din Aayenge' has changed to 'Chowkidar chor hai'.
