“Pickpocketer never comes alone, there are always 3 people”: Rahul Gandhi targets PM Modi, Amit Shah in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur

Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and industrialist Gautam Adani work in tandem to "loot the public" in the country
Drawing parallels with how pickpocketer and their teams operate, Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and industrialist Gautam Adani work in tandem to “loot the public” in the country.
Addressing an election rally in Bharatpur, Rahul Gandhi said, “The pickpocketer never comes alone, there are three people. One comes from the front, one from the back and one sees from the distance. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s job is to divert your attention. He comes on TV from the front and distracts the public by raising topics of Hindu-Muslim, demonetization, and GST. Meanwhile, Adani comes from behind and takes the money.”
“Amit Shah is the third person. His role is to supervise. He ensures no one should know about what is happening,” he added.
Rahul Gandhi again raised the question about the participation of the backward castes and economically weaker sections in the appointment of the secretary-level positions at the centre.
“Ask any kid what he wants to become and that kid will say he wants to become an IAS officer. The central government is run by Secretaries. When we asked how many officers are from backward classes, economically weaker sections, he opted to remain silent,” he said.
“When I found that only 3 OBCs were working as Secretaries at the Centre. I was shocked. They all have small departments. When half of our population is from backward classes, how is it possible,” he added.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at the Congress leadership, accusing it of indulging in ‘dynastic’ politics and said that the grand old party strives to ‘punish’ its leader Sachin Pilot for his father’s revolt against high command in 1996.
“You know the history of Congress. Whomsoever tries to raise his voice against wrongdoings in the party, will lose political space because of the high command sitting in Delhi. Rajesh Pilot only once raised his voice against Congress and that too for the betterment of the Congress, but the party is punishing Sachin Pilot to date. Rajesh Pilot is no more but Congress is with a feeling of rancour for his son,” The PM said.
Rajasthan is set for assembly polls on November 25, with votes to be counted on December 3.
Of the 200 assembly seats, 199 will be contested on November 25, as elections in the Karanpur constituency were adjourned due to the passing of the Congress candidate Gurmeet Singh Koonar
In 2018, the Congress won 99 seats, while the BJP won 73. Gehlot assumed the CM position with the support of BSP MLAs and Independents. (ANI)
