Sonia Gandhi Addresses Bharat Bachao Rally in Ramlila Maidan, Delhi
  • I know how difficult it is for the poor, especially the women. I know how much a woman sacrifices to ensure her family is taken care of.
  • Our heads hand in shame seeing the state of the nation and its economy.
  • Today, people's money is not safe even in the bank.
  • Where is all that "Sabka saath, Sabka vikas"? Where is it?
  • Why have the country's institutions destroyed? What happened to all the black money Modi Sarkar was to bring back? Who has all that money now?
  • We see the Modi government destroy our Constitution with each passing day.

  • Our enemies wanted our strong economy to be destroyed. Wanted to make us weak as a nation. But enemies were not needed. Our prime minister - Narendra Modi - has destroyed our economy.
  • Why do you see us introducing MSPs in whichever states we are coming to power. It is because we know that this country can only recover and be strong when our farmers earn well.

Rahul Gandhi on Economy
  • There was a time when this country was growing at 9%, people spoke of the success story of China and India. Called us 'Chindia', but look at us today. There are people standing with onions in their hands. Onions have reached Rs 200 a kg.
  • The prime minister has single-handedly destroyed the economy.
  • Narendra Modi ji came and banned 500 and 1000 rupee notes. Fooled you all by saying that this was done to remove black money. But what happened? Till today the economy has not been able to recover from it.
  • GDP is down to 5 per cent - that too in the method of calculation that the government has introduced. If you calculate in the old method that we used during our time, you would see that the GDP is actually down to 2 percent.
  • Narendra Modi has made you all poor by taking money from your pockets, but on the other hand he has given 100s of contracts, worth 1 lakh crore, to Adani. Would you not call this theft and corruption?
