Godda: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi launched a scathing attack on Narendra Modi over crimes against women and said that the Prime Minister had launched 'Make in India' but nowadays it is 'Rape in India'.
"Narendra Modi had said 'Make in India' but nowadays wherever you look, it is 'Rape in India'. In Uttar Pradesh Narendra Modi's MLA raped a woman, then she met with an accident but Narendra Modi did not utter a word," alleged Gandhi speaking at a public rally in Godda on Thursday.
"Narendra Modi says 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' but he never told from whom should the daughters be saved? They should be saved from BJP's MLA," he added.
Gandhi also targeted the media in the country and alleged that it was working for a few 'Indian industrialists'.
"People watch television and only Narendra Modi's face is being featured on the screens 24/7 but you won't see the faces of Hemant Soren or Rahul Gandhi. Is the media for farmers, labourers or the unemployed youth? Media is working for the owners of Narendra Modi. The media belongs to some 10-15 Indian industrialists that's why Rahul Gandhi's face won't be featured on the television screens," said Gandhi.
"If someone wants to see Rahul Gandhi's face, visit a farmer's household and ask them who is working for the welfare of the farmers and they will take Rahul Gandhi's name," he added.
Earlier on Thursday while addressing a public rally at Rajmahal too Gandhi lashed out at Modi, saying the latter wants to create an India that is "scared" where people are "weak and divided".
"Narendra Modi wants an India that is scared. He wants the people of India to be weak and divided. He has become the Prime Minister only by dividing people on the basis of religion, caste and region," he said.
Attacking the BJP-led Centre over inflation, Gandhi said that Prime Minister is in "some other world" at a time when common people were bearing the brunt of price rise.
