Allahabad/ Amethi, Apr 22 (ANI): Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi has ridiculed the Bharatiya Janata Party’s ‘India Shining’ campaign during the last election, saying it shone only in the houses of the rich.
Addressing a public rally in Allahabad on Tuesday, Rahul said that the BJP’s English slogan was not even understood by the rural poor.
“In the last elections, BJP had a new slogan called ‘India Shining’ which was in English. Half of the country did not understand its meaning. It actually meant that the country is shining but you people proved the way it shined. In fact India shined only in BJP houses, in selected houses of New Delhi, and not in villages,” he said.
Meanwhile, hinting at Rahul’s sister Priyanka entering politics, her husband Robert Vadra said she should do so at the ‘right time.”
“Definitely Priyanka should enter politics. But it is up to her and an individual choice so when we feel the time is right she will enter politics,” Vadra said in Amethi, the constituency from where Rahul is contesting. (ANI)
