Govt attacking casual sector, lockdown was deliberate: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, August 31

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday posted a video alleging that the federal government was intentionally attacking the casual sector and the latest lockdown was one such calculated transfer.

Gandhi stated the intention was to enslave the poor who type the spine of India’s casual economic system.

“The BJP government has attacked the informal structure. There is an attempt to turn you into a slave,” he stated including that demonetization, flawed GST implementation and lockdown had been all examples of how the federal government was undermining an entire sector.

Claiming that in 2008 India survived the ultimate recession resulting from a powerful casual sector, Gandhi stated: “Till the time India’s informal sector is strong, no economic storm can touch India. Now let’s come to present day. The BJP government has been attacking the informal sector over the past six years. I am giving you three massive examples right now- Demonetisation, wrong GST and Lockdown. Don’t think the lockdown was unplanned. Don’t think it was done at the last minute. The aim of these three decisions was to destroy our informal sector,” he stated.

Gandhi argued that the PM wanted the media and advertising and marketing to run the federal government and this was being achieved by 15-20 individuals of the formal sector.

“The informal sector has a lot of money which the government can’t touch. They want to break this sector and extort this money from them. The effects of this attack on informal sector will be seen soon. The results will be that India won’t be able to produce jobs. Because the informal sector produces 90 per cent of the jobs. Once the informal sector is destroyed India won’t be able to produce jobs,” stated the Congress chief.

He stated the poor, farmers and small merchants of the casual economic system run this nation, take it ahead and “there is a conspiracy against them.”

He stated the casual sector employees had been being cheated.

“We have to understand this attack and the entire country has to unite to fight against this,” he stated.

The former Congress chief stated when he requested then PM Manmohan Singh now India survived the 2008 recession, Singh instructed him it was as a result of power of the casual sector comprising farmers, labourers and MSMEs.
