Back from his 59-day sabbatical, Rahul Gandhi has taken a series of pot-shots at the Prime Minister. In his latest attack, the Congress Vice President has taken a dig at PM Modi following his meeting with Manmohan Singh at 7RCR. Rahul claimed that PM Modi met the former PM for taking tuition classes on how to combat the failing economy of the country.

Mocking the Indian PM, Gandhi also called that the Centre’s “Make in India” programme is “a big zero”, triggering massive cheers at an NSUI convention chaired by the students’ wing chief Roji John.

Economy Lessons

The PM took one-hour lesson from our PM. He tried to understand how the economy is run. He said we are unable to understand, what should we do, please tell us. I will ask Manmohan Singh what he taught Modi.
– Rahul Gandhi, Congress Vice President

“Make in India, a Big Zero”

Taking his “Make in India” jibe further, the Congress VP emphasised that the Modi government is just financing two-three corporate houses for kick-starting the economy, as reported by The Times of India.

It will be a big zero after five years. How many people have got jobs in one year.
– Rahul Gandhi

“RSS-run Centre”

Rahul also criticised the Centre for being heavily influenced by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). According to him, because of the RSS, the Centre has had the patronizing attitude of imposing solutions on the diverse population while Congress always encouraged people to come up with their own views.

Rahul added that the RSS was using discipline to “obliterate individuality”.

You see the shakhas of RSS. There is a straight queue in shakhas. If any one makes a noise there, he will be hit with a baton. Have you talked to any RSS and BJP leader? Discipline is just an excuse for them to murder individuality. And this is the thought process which is running the country.
– Rahul Gandhi
