Ranchi, Mar 2 : Congress president Rahul Gandhi today once again raised the issue of Rafael Deal to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that it is the Indian Air Force which protects the nation but the 'Chowkidaar' stole Rs 30,000 crore from the same air force and gave it to Ambani.
Addressing his first public rally in the state capital after taking over the reins of the Congress party Mr Gandhi also made the people raise the slogan of 'Chowkidaar chor hai'. He said that whereever he goes and as soon as he says the word 'Chowkidaar the people immediately say 'Chor hai'.
He said that now even he has now started feeling bad for the slogan as one 'chowkidaar' was bringing bad name for all the other chowkidaars of the country who are doing their work honestly therefore he had come up with a new slogan of 'Desh Ka Chowkidaar Chor Hai'.
"All of you know that when i say Chowkidaar Chor hai it means that i am talking about Narendra Modi," he said, adding that it is the airforce which protects the nation and from the same air force the Chowkidaar stole Rs 30,000 crore and gave it to Ambani.
"From the pilot of the airforce the Chowkidaar stole Rs 30,000 and gave it in the pockets of Ambani. The Airforce protects the nation, pilots are martyred, and our Prime Minister steals the money from the Airforce and gives it in the pockets of Ambani...there cannot be more shameful act than this," he said.
Continuing his attacks further he said that the Chowkidaar not only steals from the army but also from the workers, tribals and farmers. He said that the Congress party for the protection of the farmers and the tribals brought the land acquisition act and the tribals and the PESA acts. He said that the 'Jal Junglee and Zameen belong to the people and not to Ambani or Adani'.
Mr Gandhi said that the land acquisition act which was brought by the Congress party it has been clearly stated that land can be only acquired after the consent of 80 per cent of the farmers and social impact study has to be also made in lieu off the land acquired and the compensation would be four times more than the market rate.
The Congress president said that the first thing Prime Minister Narendra Modi did after coming to power was to cancel the land acquisition bill and the tribal bill against which the Congress party fought in the Parliament as land of the people cannot be allowed to go in the hands of 15-20 corporates.
"On three occasions Narendra Modi tried to bring changes in the land acquisition bill and on three occasions the Congress party stopped him after which he asked the state governments to change the bill in their own states," he said. UNI
