If voted to office, will fill up 30 lakh vacancies: Rahul Gandhi | India News

KULLU/SHIMLA: Congress-led INDIA bloc has set itself “a realistic target” of filling 30 lakh job vacancies as soon as it comes to office, unlike PM Modi‘s “false promise” of providing employment to two crore people, Rahul Gandhi said in Himachal on Sunday.
He declared Congress would also waive crippling farm loans and scrap the allegedly ill-conceived Agnipath scheme for recruitment to the armed forces.
Rahul said PM Modi had been “openly saying” the Congress govt in Himachal would be toppled, but he said the party was made of sterner stuff. “BJP toppled the Goa, Arunachal and MP govts by giving bribes in crores of rupees. But you won’t be able to do the same in Himachal because people of this state know you too well,” he said in Una.
Modi had said in Mandi, where BJP has fielded actor Kangana Ranaut, that the Congress govt’s days were numbered.
Rahul, who previously announced that women from poor families would each receive Rs 8,500 in their bank accounts “on June 5”, accused Modi of “serving the interests of a handful of corporates like Ambani and Adani”.
He said Modi waived Rs 16 lakh crore in loans for 22 families but failed to give Rs 9,000 crore to Himachal Pradesh to recover from the devastation caused by the disaster last year, which affected 22,000 families.Calling Modi the “epicentre of corruption”, Rahul asked why the govt was not revealing the names of those who donated under the electoral bond scheme.
Talking about the Agnipath scheme, Rahul said, “It creates two types of soldiers. The Army never wanted such a scheme created by PMO. There won’t be any such scheme in INDIA bloc govt.”
