Modi is not the nation; nation is not Modi says Rahul Gandhi

GUWAHATI: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday criticised the Modi Led BJP government stating that the government did not want to give an ear to the voice of the people. Taking the example of the recent turn of events in Jawaharlal Nehru University, the Congress leader, who is on a two day visit to the state, said, "Modi does want to answer the questions asked by Hindustan. Kanhaiya, the JNU student, against whom the BJP slapped a case of sedition, was not given a chance to speak his mind. This shows Modi governments attitude. Modi thinks once he has become the Prime Minister, he is the supreme authority. But he should remember that he is not the nation and the nation does not belong to him."

He said that BJP has also charged him with sedition charge but he did not need to prove his love for the country. Addressing a huge gathering of Panchayat representatives, Block Congress Committee members and District Congress Committee members in Nehrubali of Nagaon, Rahul Gandhi said, "The BJP has slapped a sedition charge against such a person, two of the family members of whom has given life for the nation. This country runs through my blood, I do not need to prove my patriotism for this country."

Rahul Gandhi also took up the issue of Nagaland Accord and said, "Once I met the Prime Minister and I asked him as to why he did not consult with Assam Chief Minister on Nagaland Accord as the accord involves land issue of Assam. But he did not bother to answer me. This shows how insensitive he is."

The Congress leader will take part in a Padyatra in Nagaon before flying back to Delhi on Saturday.
