With not even a month left for the Lok Sabha Elections to start, the world wars between the parties are on its best. Congress President, Rahul Gandhi lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party while claiming that the Congress' NYAY scheme would 'remonetize' what the Narendra Modi government 'demonetized'.
During an interview with the Press Trust of India, Gandhi alleged that BJP was in total 'disarray' after Congress announced its minimum income support scheme.
He said, "NYAY will achieve twin objectives of giving money to 20 percent poorest families and firing up the economy." He also alleged that by implementing the NYAY scheme, justice will be delivered to India's poorest families and will ensure to eradicate poverty.
"We want to return to deprived sections what Modi has snatched from them," he claimed.
With no intention of sparing the Prime Minister, Gandhi further added, "If the prime minister had done his job properly, poverty would have ended by now."
He also claimed that "unlike BJP's demonetization and GST, the Congress will not implement 'NYAY' rashly."
Rahul called the NYAY a game changer saying that it is perfectly doable without any financial pressure on exchequer while stating that it will start a powerful economic cycle of consumption and production in the country.
Rahul had announced on Monday the Universal Basic Income scheme which will provide minimum income support of Rs 72,0000 annually to impoverished Indian families earning less than Rs 12,000 per month.
Gandhi claimed that the programme will benefit 250 million of a population of 1.3 billion.
