MP Elections 2023: Why Priyanka referred to Cricket legends Tendulkar and Kohli at election rally in Dhar

Kukshi (Dhar): Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today said that inflation and unemployment are the biggest problems of the country today and the country is facing this problem due to handing over the employment providing companies to some industrialists.

Mrs. Vadra was addressing an election meeting organized in support of the party candidate in Kukshi in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh.

Vadra on Monday used India’s most popular sport cricket to make a verbal assault on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the context of “high prices.”

Priyanka said, “During Congress rule at Centre, Modi himself said, ‘We will witness whether Sachin (Tendulkar) scores a century in the World Cup first or onion prices cross the Rs 100 per kg mark. Did he not say that? Now I wish to tell him that Virat (Kohli) has hit a century and so has onion and the government is yours (Mr Modi’s). Now what do you say? His mouth is shut. First tomatoes were selling at prohibitive prices and now it is onion.”

Priyanka termed inflation and unemployment as the country’s worst hurdles.

During this, she said in this tribal dominated area that from Jawaharlal Nehru to Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi never tried to change the culture of the tribals. Their policies benefited the tribals.

Govt companies handed over to industrialists

In this sequence, she said that youth unemployment and inflation are the biggest problems of this time. Government posts are lying vacant. Earlier, most of the jobs used to come from big government companies, but now the government has handed them over to some industrialists, which is a major reason for unemployment.

She said that small industrialists were ruined by things like Corona and GST. Inflation is increasing so much due to GST.

She alleged that the state government made 22 thousand announcements, but did not fulfill even 22. Along with this, she also compared the BJP government of the state with the Congress government of Chhattisgarh. She said that the problem of stray animals in Chhattisgarh was also solved by making Gauthan, which is now also generating employment.

She said that in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is angrily called 'Mamaji', whereas the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh is affectionately called 'Kaka'. She also accused the state government of taking commission.

She also reiterated his guarantee of caste census if Congress government is formed.

Along with this, she said that industrialist Adani earns Rs 1600 crore a day, whereas a farmer of the country earns Rs 27. She said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi spent Rs 20 thousand crores in rebuilding the Parliament, but he refuses to give loan waiver to the farmers.

She said that people remember late Indira Gandhi because she did not make empty announcements. She returned the rights of the people to them. Congress governments gave people the right to food and rights like MNREGA.

She said that today's politics diverts attention in elections. As soon as elections come, BJP start talking about religion.

Priyanka smiles on hearing witty comment against Adani

Priyanka could not suppress her smile in the context of a clever remark – regarding tycoon Gautam Adani – by a member of the audience during the rally.

While addressing the public meeting, the visiting leader asked, “Who is the country’s biggest industrialist?”

“Adani,” the crowd responded.

“Kya koi mujhe bata sakta hai ki vo kya banate hain? (Can anyone tell me what he manufactures?) Cars, toothpaste, pillars, loudspeakers or cement?” Mrs Priyanka queried.

”Bewakoof banate hain. (He makes fools of others),” came the reply.

Continuing her speech, the Congress General Secretary said, “Public assets and government industries were given to him for peanuts. Loans worth thousands of crores were waived. Certain people desire to remain in power to perpetrate corruption and make palaces for themselves.”

“Like the kings of yore, they are snatching all your rights,” she added.
