Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi while addressing the Adivasi Satyagraha rally in Dahod said that Congress will again bring the same cooperative Amul model in Gujarat. The present government is being run by two-three industrialists, the public has no participation in it. If you agitate for your rights in Gujarat, then the police will sue the youth leader Jignesh Mevani, for which he was sentenced to 3 months imprisonment. Heard for the first time in Gujarat that even for agitating, punishment is given. Water is the right of the tribals on the forest land.
Rahul Gandhi said that “the roads, buildings and buildings and development seen in Gujarat have sweated the blood of the tribals. Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has handed over schools, hospitals and colleges to private groups, where you cannot go now. Tribals did not get anything in this system, Congress has started schemes of treatment up to Rs 10 lakh, free medicine etc. in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh.”
He further said “As soon as Congress comes to power in Gujarat, it will bring the same cooperative model of Amul. What Modi ji did while staying in Gujarat, he is now doing the same work in the country, big government companies and resources are being handed over to private hands, all these are resources owned by the common people of the country.”
Gujarat Congress President Jagdish Thakor, while describing Rahul as the future for the unity and brotherhood of the country, said that one million tribal families of Gujarat will be reached. Congress volunteers will go from village to village and hand over Indira Gandhi Sankalp Patra to the tribals after holding Constituent Assembly, Choupal and Account Council. Congress will make laws for the tribals and will again give them those rights which were once given to them by the Congress governments.
