Prime Minister Narendra Modi was criticized by Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday for rising prices and unemployment in the country and told instead of releasing the cheetahs, he should give his time in resolving the issues related to unemployment crisis and rise in the price of essential commodities.
Addressing a rally as part of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, which crowned at Cheppad near Haripad in Kerala, Rahul told the Center is “methodical assaulting small, medium businesses, growers and labourers”.
The country’s problem is unemployment and prices, but the prime minister is leaving the cheetahs in the wild. You imagine that the Prime Minister should spend his time solving the unemployment crisis and the issues of price rise. But he is busy taking pictures of cheetahs.
Congress leader and former Union minister Jairam Ramesh termed Modi’s move to release cheetahs in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park as a “spectacle” and a “diversion tactic” from the success of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Addressing the media in Kolkata.
Ramesh said, It’s been 10 days since the Bharat Jodo Yatra began, (and) the spontaneous response we’ve received shows that the initiative is turning out to be a huge success. This has stirred up the BJP and its leadership. The ‘Dirty Tricks Department’ of the BJP is now working overtime to create a different media narrative or find loopholes in the Yatra.
He declared that this release of cheetahs is” the rearmost from that department after attempts to produce issues over T- shirts( which Rahul Gandhi wore out during the visit) and other effects.”
Without naming West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee or her party, TMC, Ramesh said” there can not be opposition concinnity without the Congress”. He prompted other parties not to “impale in the reverse” or “weaken” the Congress.
