Bikram, May 16 : Congress president Rahul Gandhi today predicted that May 23, the day of counting would be 'Good Bye' for Prime Minister Narendra Modi as people had already rejected him in six phases of Lok Sabha elections and they would also do so in the final phase on May 19.
Addressing an election meeting here in favour of Misa Bharti, RJD candidate from Patliputra, Mr Gandhi said that Narendra Modi government was sure to be ousted from power and only formality remains to be completed with the declaration of the election result. He said that the crushing defeat of BJP and its allies in the elections was inevitable as people had made up their mind to ‘say goodbye’ to the government.
Mr Gandhi said that Congress had prepared an action plan to ameliorate the condition of poor people and farmers if his party was voted to power. A sum of Rs 72,000 would be deposited to the individual bank account of 25 crores most poor people every year while one lakh youths would be given employment at Panchayat level in next one year, he added.
Congress president said that his party if voted to power would ensure farmers were not put behind bars in the event of their failure to repay loans.
Mr Gandhi said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was maintaining stoic silence on corruption in Rafale deal and was not explaining why Anil Ambani`s company was selected for the deal and why former defence minister Manohar Parrikar had said that he was not aware of the deal.
Mr Gandhi continued to taunt on honesty being claimed by Prime Minister Mr Modi and provoked people to raise the slogan ‘chowkidar chor hain’, as he has been doing in all his public meetings.
Besides Misa Bharti, daughter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad and her two brothers- Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly Tejaswi Yadav, MLA Tej Pratap Yadav, senior RJD leader and former union minister Jai Prakash Narayan Yadav, senior Congress leader and state election campaign committee chairman Akhilesh Prasad Singh, AICC In charge for Bihar affairs Shaktisinh Gohil and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
