Mounting attack on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the ruling NDA government, Congress President Rahul Gandhi promised a “magic” to happen after the implementation of party’s NYAY scheme, which he said will start generating income and employment in the economy.

Addressing a rally in Saurashtra, Rahul listed the announcements made in the Congress manifesto, including ₹72,000 for each family of the poorest 20 per cent in the country, no jail for a defaulter farmer and 22 lakh government jobs for the unemployed and said, “This is my response to the injustice meted out to you under false promise of ₹15 lakh, 2 crore jobs and higher prices. Under the Congress rule, there will be justice for everyone. Hence, the scheme named NYAY,” said the Congress President.

At a rally near Rajula in Amreli district on Monday, Rahul categorically explained the basic economics for prosperity of the masses.

“Even if Narendra Modi’s idea of ₹15 lakh to every poor was a false promise, I liked the concept and asked our think-tanks to workout a plan to give maximum possible to the poor without hurting interests of the economy and common tax payers,” he said adding that ₹72,000 per year can be given to the poorest 20% of the families.

“This means ₹3.60 lakh per family in five years. This is no false promise, this is my true promise to you,” said Rahul.

“Questions are being raised from where will we get the money for the poor? After GST and demonetisation, economy had collapsed, because you stopped purchases. Therefore, factories closed down, and joblessness peaked. The magic will begin after we implement NYAY. You will get the money, and start purchases. Factories will start functioning and there will be more jobs. In short, NYAY scheme will actually kick-start the country’s economy,” Rahul said.

Rahul was accompanied by Amit Chavda, State party chief, fire-brand Patidar youth leader Hardik Patel, local leader Kanubhai Kalsariya and former State unit chiefs Arjun Modhvadia and Siddharth Patel besides the Congress candidates and other party leaders.
