Tirupur (TN), January 24
Continuing to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his second day of campaign in Tamil Nadu, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday alleged that Chinese troops have occupied Indian territory and the man with “56 inch-chest” could not even utter the name of the neighbouring country.
Addressing meetings here and in neighbouring Erode as part of the three-day campaign tour of Tamil Nadu for the Assembly elections to be held in the next few months, he also repeated his charge that Modi governed the country for just five or six business people.
The Central government was not for the farmers, labourers or the micro, small or medium enterprises that are the nation’s future and abound in this region of the state, Gandhi, on a campaign tour of western districts, said.
Taking forward his “Tamil language and culture” pitch to connect with the people and attack the BJP, the Congress MP said he wanted to be the soldier of the Tamil people in Delhi and reiterated that he would not allow the saffron party to disregard Tamil culture. — PTI
