Rahul launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing rallies in Satna and Chitrakoot on the first day of his two-day visit to Madhya Pradesh.

He said Modi had claimed to be a watchman to protect the country's interests but he "turned out to be a 'chowkidar' of (industrialists) Anil Ambani and Vijay Mallya".

“Mitron, I don’t want to be your prime minister. I want to become your ‘chowkidar’. Later, we got to know that he was acting as Anil Ambani’s ‘chowkidar’.”

"As soon as we come to power, we will change the 'Gabbar Singh Tax' into the real tax. We will implement one tax at lowest rates," the Congress leader promised the crowd in Madhya Pradesh.

After the Bhopal roadshow, a huge crowd gathered to take part in Rahul Gandhi’s roadshow in Rewa.

At this roadshow, Gandhi said that when he asked PM Modi his reason for giving Anil Ambani the Rafale deal, the PM was not even able to look him in the eye.

He also said that unlike Modi who gives loans “only to 50-20 of his rich friends,” the Congress will open banks for all small and medium enterprises.
