73% Dalit-Backward-Tribals should change picture of India, X-ray of caste census necessary: Rahul Gandhi


On arrival in Prayagraj with the ongoing Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for unchecked poverty, unemployment and question paper leak. He said that 73 percent Dalits, backward classes and tribals should join hands to change the picture of the country. He said that an X-ray of caste census would reveal who has how much money.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who reached Sangam city leading the Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra, on Sunday evening accused giving preference to film stars by ignoring Dalits, backward classes and tribals during the ‘pran prathishta’ in Ayodhya.

Gandhi described X-ray of caste census as weapon of the poor and country. He also called upon the 73 percent population of Dalits, backward classes and tribals to unite for change, describing it as their biggest strength.

The Congress leader shared his plight with the youth and unemployed at Lakshmi Talkies intersection. He said that caste census was a big weapon in their hands. He appealed to them to assess their population and also find out what was their share in country’s wealth as not one of the top 200 companies was owned by a backward class member.

He appealed to the visibly agitated youths to rise up to the occasion an show the strength of OBC-Dalit and Tribal community. In this journey on an open jeep, state president Ajay Rai, former state president Ajay Kumar Lallu and former MLA Anugrah Narayan Singh accompanied Rahul Gandhi.

Lashes out at Adani-Ambani

The Congress MP also targeted the Central government regarding waiver of loans of the country’s top industrialists Gautam Adani and Mukesh Ambani. He said such people (BJP) never waived the loans of farmers but, they waived off the loan of Rs 14 lakh crore of 10-15 industrialists. Ambani, Adani ask for bank loans worth lakhs of crores of rupees and they get it within seconds, but if anyone else sought an education loan, al that he or she got was getting chased away from the bank.
