PM Modi protected interests of ’15 selected people’: Rahul Gandhi

Congress president Rahul Gandhi accused him of protecting the interest of “15 selected people”, while ignoring the farmers and the poor.

“This chowkidar obliged 15 selected people during his five-year term but told sugarcane farmers that cane-farming caused ‘sugar’ (diabetes),” Gandhi alleged…

The diabetes remark is usually attributed to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

“Narendra Modi in 2014 made a number of false assurances, on ‘achhe din’ (better days), two crore jobs, Rs 15 lakh in every bank account. But none of them came true,” Gandhi said at an election rally in the Kheri Lok sabha constituency.
