MP Election-2023: Rahul Gandhi holds mega road show in Bhopal

Bhopal/Neemuch: The very next day of Diwali, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi are in action mode in Madhya Pradesh. While PM Modi is holding a meeting, Rahul Gandhi is holding a mega road show in Bhopal after the meeting. His road is passing through the two constituencies of the capital Bhopal, Bhopal North and Bhopal Central, where the condition of Congress is shaky. There will be a street meeting here. In the 2018 assembly elections also, Rahul Gandhi had done a similar road show and Congress also got the benefit from it.

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh election in-charge Randeep Surjewala posted a video on X handle and wrote: The crowd of people before Rahul Gandhi's road show in Bhopal is telling that Congress is coming to power with a huge majority in Madhya Pradesh.


Earlier, addressing a poll campaign in Neemuch, Rahul Gandhi once again reiterated his party's commitment to holding a caste census. The Congress MP also targeted the Prime Minister alleging that the PM doesn't say a word about caste census.

"I told Prime Minister Modi many times to get the caste census conducted across the country. But he doesn't say a word about the caste census. Rather he says that there is no caste in the country. If we come to power in the state, we guarantee that we will conduct a caste census. Everybody needs to know about their strength in the country", Gandhi said


"The government in the state is run by Shivraj Singh Chouhan along with his 53 officers. Out of those 53 officers, there is only one OBC officer. Can you think how much of the decision-making power rests with him? It is 0.33% . He makes decisions on 0.33% of your total budget. Now look at their population, it is more than 50%. The OBC Class is being denigrated", he added.

Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the state government, Rahul Gandhi said, "PM Modi and CM Shivraj keep claiming that it is the government of the OBCs. They don't assign any task to that one OBC officer".



The opposition MPs of the newly established INDIA bloc have been demanding a caste census throughout the country claiming that it would be conducive to policy-making for different groups in society according to their population.

On the other hand, the BJP-led central government has been claiming that the caste census would create "division" in society.

Meanwhile, in Chhattisgarh, the Bhupesh Baghel-led Congress government has announced to conduct a caste census in the state, if voted to power.
