- Jairam Ramesh said- If Modi comes this time, he will sell NTPC of Korba.
- Said- Unemployment rate is highest compared to last 45 years
- Advani was mistakenly written instead of Adani in Bharat Ratna.
Naiduniya representative Korba. Senior Congress leader Jairam Naresh, who reached Korba with Rahul Gandhi in the Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra, said that JDU chief Nitish Kumar leaving the INDA alliance will not have any impact on the front. There were 28 parties, now two parties have reduced. INDA alliance is strong. Nitish has hit back and the Rashtriya Loktantrik Dal (RLD) is also trying to do the same.
In a press conference held in Barpali on Monday, he said that discussions are going on with Aam Aadmi Party, DMK, NCP, Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena and Mamata Banerjee regarding seat sharing for the Lok Sabha elections. We are strong and seat sharing in various states will be finalized soon. Taking aim at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Congress leader said that Modi had first talked about one country – one tax and then one country – one election, but in reality during the 10 years of Modi’s tenure, it has become one country – one company. It is left. Rahul has been raising his voice against capitalists through Bharat Jodo Yatra and Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra. Inflation has increased in the last ten years, the unemployment rate is the highest in the last 45 years and public sector enterprises are being sold. If Modi comes this time in 2024, he will also sell your NTPC plant in Korba. The Prime Minister had said that NMDC’s steel plant in Bastar will not be privatized, but he has been trying to sell it for the last years. He alleged that in this way all economic policies are being adopted to benefit one friend, one company. Forests are being cut and coal mines are being started.
Advani was mistakenly written instead of Adani in Bharat Ratna.
Jairam Ramesh sarcastically said that when he was about to announce Bharat Ratna, the typist made a mistake, instead of Adani he mistakenly said Advani. When asked about the position of Congress in the Lok Sabha elections, he mentioned the film after twenty years and said that this film starring Vishwajeet and Wahida Rehman was released in 1962. In the year 2023, we had to face defeat in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, but in the year 2004, the Congress-led alliance formed the government at the Centre. Now after 20 years the same story of 2004 will be repeated. Then BJP had left the cave of India signing and now of Vishwa Guru. This time we will see surprising results in the Lok Sabha.
Two parties fight elections on the basis of ideologies
When asked whether Rahul Gandhi will be the face of the opposition alliance, Jairam Naresh showed his paw and said, this is always the face of Congress in elections and the party contests elections on this basis. Our party does not contest elections on any individual. In response to another question, he said that elections are fought between parties on the basis of ideologies, announcements and election campaigns. The question should not arise as to who will be PM or CM. The question is which party is going to form the government. India does not have a presidential system like America, but a parliamentary democracy and it should be implemented as such. This is not a beauty contest.
