Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, addressing the Bharat Jodo Yatra from Red Fort in national capital this evening, said the BJP is raking up the Hindu-Muslim issues to divert attention from the real issues. He once again slammed the Prime Minister for his alleged proximity with businessmen Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani.
'Not Modi's government, but Ambani-Adani's'
"It is not Narendra Modi's government. It is Ambani and Adani government. Hindu-Muslim is being done to divert attention from the real issues. Today degree holder youths are selling 'pakoras'," Congress MP Rahul Gandhi said.
The Wayanad MP said religious differences were used as weapon. "They are spread 24X7 on TV to divert public attention from real issues," he said.
