(G.N.S) Dt. 19
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited suggestions for his monthly radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’, Congress president Rahul Gandhi today suggested that the PM should speak on the topics of unemployment, Chinese presence in Doklam and rising incidents of rapes in Haryana.
The Congress president was responding to a PM Modi’s tweet when he had invited suggestions for 2018’s first ‘Mann ki Baat’ session, which is scheduled to take place on January 28.
In November last year, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had pulled up the government and blamed demonetisation for destroying millions of jobs while PM Narendra Modi was harnessing people’s anger over unemployment towards communal hatred.
In an op-ed article in Financial Times, titled “Modi’s reforms have robbed India of its economic prowess”, Rahul said Modi’s “arbitrary” act had killed millions of livelihoods by destroying the informal labour sector and wiping out small and medium businesses.
The second suggestion was aimed at news report of Chinese presence in the Doklam plateau.
On Thursday, the Congress accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of compromising with national security and strategic interests and said his government was “caught snoozing” when China was reportedly occupying the Doklam plateau with fresh military installations.
The third suggestion pertained to the rising number of rape cases reported from the state of Haryana.
In the last one week, the state has been marred with at least six incidents of rapes, including two incidents involving minor girls.
The opposition led by the Congress party had demanded the resignation of the Manohar Lal Khattar government in the state for failing to control the law and order situation.
