Congress President Rahul Gandhi said the prime minister had declared during elections that he wanted to be a ‘chowkidar’ but never clarified who he wanted to guard. Gandhi alleged that he benefited 15-20 industrialists of the country in place of farmers. Gandhi named industrialists like Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi, Lalit Modi and Anil Ambani, from whom Narendra Modi is gaining benefits.
Modi ji, i think Make in India needs a serious rethink. Most people feel it has failed. I assure you we in the Congress are thinking very deeply about how it will be done. https://t.co/3jKBOzEmE3

Continuing his lashing attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a rally at Dholpur in poll-bound Rajasthan, Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax, which are termed as Gabbar Singh Tax, had destroyed India’s economy.
Gandhi said Modi’s marketing is done by “industrialists whom the prime minister is giving crores”.
The Congress President further said, “Nobody can appear on TV free of cost, otherwise everyone would have appeared on TV. It requires crores for marketing and PM’s marketing is done by the industrialists.”
Gandhi again at the roadshow in Dholpur, Madhya Pradesh said, “Youth had trusted Modi. He had said he did not wish to become a prime minister but wanted to be a chowkidar. Now people are laughing. He never told that whose
chowkidar he wanted to be. They got to know later that Anil Ambani is being protected.”
Gandhi moreover asserted that PM has manipulated citizens of the nation in the name of ‘Made in India’. Still, according to the Congress President most of the products in India has ‘Made in China’ written on their back. He questioned the BJP government in Rajasthan under Vasundhara Raje over issues of farm loan waiver, employment, and food security.
During UPA regime, Congress govt in Rajasthan provided free medicines. There were schemes like MNREGA, Farm loan waiver, and food Security. What has BJP government done for the poor in the last 5 years? asked Gandhi while addressing the crowd at Dholpur.
