Madhya Pradesh Assembly Elections-2023: Rahul Gandhi Once Again Raises Issue Of Caste Census In Janakrosh Rally In Kalapipal, Shajapur; Says There Is A Need To Conduct 'X-Ray' Of India

Kalapipal (Shajapur): Ahead of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly Elections-2023, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today once again raised the issue of caste census. He said there is a need for 'X-ray' of the country to bring out which caste is present in the country and in what number and caste census will be conducted if Congress government is formed.

While addressing the 'Jan Aakrosh Yatra' being taken out by the state Congress in Kalapipal in Shajapur district of Madhya Pradesh, Gandhi referred to the party's state unit president Kamal Nath in support of his point. He said that Kamal Nath got injured recently, after which as soon as he reached the hospital, the doctors first got him X-rayed and then told about the further problem.

Caste census is the biggest issue facing the country today

In this sequence, he said that just as Kamal Nath was the first to be X-rayed, similarly now there is a need to get the country's X-ray done. He said that caste census is the biggest issue facing the country today.

During this Janakrosh Yatra meeting of Congress, former Chief Minister of the state Kamal Nath, party General Secretary and state in-charge Randeep Surjewala, former Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh, Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Dr. Govind Singh and many other senior leaders of the party were present.

Reiterating his old allegation, Gandhi once again said today that the country is run by 90 top officials, out of which only three come from Other Backward Classes (OBC). Along with this, he said that suppose if the population of OBC category in the country is about 50 percent, then why do they have control over only five percent of the budget expenditure.

Even OBC MPs and MLAs of ruling party are not allowed to speak

Regarding women's reservation, Gandhi said that Congress is in support of it, but Congress asked about OBC reservation, to which no one is answering. He claimed that three Chief Ministers of Congress come from OBC category, but the people from OBC category whom BJP has made MLAs or MPs, are also not allowed to speak.

In his nearly 25-minute address, Gandhi also targeted the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. He said that OBC category MLAs and MPs should be asked whether their views are taken before making laws. The reality is that laws are made by RSS people and selected officials of the country.

He alleged that the Central government has the data of the caste census conducted by the Congress, but the government does not want to present those data before the country.

Everything is being done to benefit just 2-3 big industrialists

Accusing the Central Government, Rahul Gandhi today said that everything is being done to benefit just two-three industrialists in the country.

The senior Congress leader alleged that various works are being done to benefit 2-3 billionaires in the country.

He claimed that as soon as he gave a speech in Parliament on the Adani issue, his Lok Sabha membership was cancelled. In this sequence, Gandhi said that such things did not matter to him, he just had to present the truth in front of everyone. He said that today Adani is visible at every port, airport and every basic facility in the country. He alleged that money is coming out of farmers' pockets and going into Adani's pockets.

In the context of Madhya Pradesh, he alleged that the BJP has made the state the center of corruption across the country. Along with this he also mentioned Shri Mahakal Lok.

18000 farmers have died of suicide in last 18 years

He alleged that when he passed through Madhya Pradesh during his Bharat Jodo Yatra, farmers told him that they were not being given fair prices for their crops in Madhya Pradesh. He also alleged that 18 thousand farmers have died of suicide in the last 18 years in the state.

Referring to the Congress governments in various states of the country, Gandhi said that the guarantees given by the Congress in Chhattisgarh, Karnataka and Rajasthan were fulfilled.
