Advani removed, Adani taken in; says Rahul


Advani removed, Adani taken in says RahulDODA (J-K): Rahul Gandhi today attacked Narendra Modi over his alleged links with the Adani group in Gujarat, saying while senior BJP leaders like L K Advani and Jaswant Singh were “thrown out”, Adani was given “everything”.

“Advani was thrown out – Jaswant Singh was thrown out (from the party) and Adani was taken in”, he said addressing a rally here in support of party candidate Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Taking a dig at Modi’s claim of governance, Gandhi said, “According to Modi government, Adani government will run – he is Gujarat’s big businessman. How was he given everything?

They (Modi Government) work like this”.

“They talk of development…will undertake development…

In Gujarat, one person was given hundreds of acres of land free and asked to do whatever he wants to do with it, but at the same time, workers and farmers were weeping,” he said, without naming the person who was granted huge chunk of land.

This is the second time in as many days that Rahul has attacked Modi on his alleged links with the Adani group.

Addressing a meeting in Udaipur yesterday, Rahul had said, “BJP has chucked out Advani and brought in Adani in its race to make one person the Prime Minister of India”.–PTI
