Next MP Govt.will be of Youths: Rahul Gandhi
Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has been made chairman of the party’s campaign committee
Rahul said, “We will bring the maximum possible number of young people forward. We have to change Madhya Pradesh. Madhya Pradesh is stuck up as far as development is concerned, he said.
“While I speak of opening up politics for the youth, the opposition ridicules me. Until we don’t have women and youth in the Lok sabha and Vidhan Sabha, things are not going to change. It is essential to have representation of both women and youth in the panchayat system to Lok Sabha,” he said.
Addressing meetings here and at Shahdol, the Congress Vice President attacked the Shivraj Singh Chauhan government on issues of graft and mal-administration, remarking “you won’t get admission in school or university because in MP, BJP has opened the University of corruption.”
Talking about the agitation he had launched in Uttar Pradesh last year, Gandhi said “when I fought for Bhatta Parsul, I was ridiculed. This was the only reason we brought the Land Acquisition Act so that not only the farmers who till the land get four times the compensation but also the people who are dependent on them benefit”.
Referring to the Ratangarh temple stampede in which 115 pilgrims were killed, he said a similar incident had happened five years ago.
“This happens only in MP. You did not respect those who died in the accident five years ago and you didn’t respect those who died two days back,” he said. He said the government doesn’t mean giving speeches but it also means giving respect to all.
Congress presented a show of unity with all top Madhya Pradesh Congress leaders, including Digvijay Singh, Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia, Ajay Singh and PCC Chief Kantilal Bhuria sharing the dais with Gandhi.
Congress is out of power in the state for the past ten years and is making concerted efforts to oust BJP. Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has been made chairman of the party’s campaign committee.
