Rahul Gandhi Addresses Rallies In Assam, Bihar; Priyanka Gandhi's Roadshows In UP: Highlights

Congress President Rahul Gandhi today addressed a public rally in Bihar's Gaya.

New Delhi:

With just two days to go for the first phase of polling, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today held a road show in Uttar Pradesh's Bijnor to seek votes for her party's candidate for the Lok Sabha elections. Priyanka Gandhi arrived in Bijnor around 11.45 am and kicked-off her road show in the city. Hundreds of Congress workers and supporters came out braving the heat to participate in her road show. The Congress workers also raised slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government at the Centre and in the state. Yesterday, Priyanka Gandhi's joint rally, with her brother and Congress President Rahul Gandhi and the party's western Uttar Pradesh in-charge Jyotiraditya Scindia, was cancelled due to bad weather. Later in the day, she will also hold a road show in Saharanpur in support of the Congress party's candidate Imran Masood. Rahul Gandhi addressed a public meeting in Assam's Hailakandi today, where he attacked PM Modi saying the ''chowkidar'' (watchman) is not only a "thief", but also a "coward" as he avoids having a direct debate with the opposition party chief. Mr Gandhi also addressed a public meeting in Bihar's Gaya.

Here are the highlights from Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's roadshows and Rahul Gandhi's public meetings:

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Speaks To Reporters In Saharanpur:
We are very hopeful that we will win. There is a lot of anger in the public against BJP and support for Congress. I request people to vote for our candidates here (Kairana, Saharanpur and Bijnor) so that we win with a huge margin

Rahul Gandhi Addresses Public Rally At Bihar's Gaya And Assam's Hailakandi:
  • Whenever we talk about giving money to poor people, Narendra Modi says where will the money come from? I will tell you where the money will come from. It would come from Anil Ambani's pocket
  • Mr Modi wants to make two countries: One for Anil Ambani and Nirav Modi, and one for you and us
  • Chowkidar is not only chor, but also a coward. I told the Chowkidar to debate with me as he talks about corruption. He does not have the guts and fled away
  • Narendra Modi ran the government in five years to give benefits to only 15 people and gave non-stop money to the richest people of the country. After Congress comes to power in 2019, the headline will be poor people are given money
  • Chowkidar took away your money by demonetisation and GST. The keys of the banks were handed over to thieves like Anil Ambani. Once we will come to power, we will snatch that key from Anil Ambani and give it to the youths of the Barak valley
  • Poor do not hire chowkidar. It's a luxury only the wealthy have

Bijnor and Saharanpur will go to polls on April 11. The Congress, which could win only two seats - Rae Bareli and Amethi - in Uttar Pradesh, out of 80 seats in 2014 Lok Sabha polls, is seeking its revival in the state. The Congress is contesting in 73 seats, as it has left seven seats for the SP-BSP-RLD alliance in the state.
