As reported by ANI, Gandhi says “I will talk about Anil Ambani, HAL, French President’s statements and the pricing of the jets. I will say that Defence Minister said clearly that it’s Prime Minister who did it.” Gandhi further accused that the demonetisation drive by the PM has only helped “his businessmen friends”.
Congress President was speaking at Ambikapur in poll-bound Chhattisgarh where he claimed that both the state government of Chhattisgarh and well as central government have failed to generate jobs. He even promised that within 10 days of coming to power, the Congress will waive off the farmer loans.
Chhattisgarh voted in the first phase of elections on 12th November and second phase of voting will be held on 20th November. The counting of votes will take place on 11th December along with other four states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Mizoram and Telangana.
