Rahul Gandhi is doing politics by putting guns on other’s shoulders: BJP

Rahul-Gandhi

Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi for sharing an old picture of farmers movement and describing it as present one, the BJP on Friday said that the Congress leader is doing politics by putting guns on other’s shoulders.

Addressing a press conference, BJP national spokesperson Dr Sambit patra said, “Rahul Gandhi’s hand can be found wherever there is politics of lies or illusion in the country. Rahul Gandhi has tweeted an old picture of the farmers movement and described it as the present photo.”

Sharing a picture of the farmers movement on Twitter, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi said, “Fearless at the forefront, he is the fortune maker of India.” In his tweet, however, the Congress leader did not mention the kisan mahapanchayat held on Sunday in Muzaffarnagar.”

Rahul Gandhi knows very well that the Congress is president-less and his party is unable to raise any issue on the ground. That’s why they try to do politics through false photos,” Patra said.

Patra claimed that it has become a habit of Rahul Gandhi not to work hard to take his organisation forward, keeping party president-less and do politics by putting guns on other’s shoulders.

Talking about the ongoing vaccination drive in the country, Patra said that the world’s fastest and largest vaccination campaign is going on in India and the whole world is appreciating it but Rahul Gandhi does not do a single tweet in the context of vaccination.

“About 68.75 crore people in the country have received one dose of the vaccine. Even after getting the vaccine to such a large population, not a single tweet of Rahul Gandhi has come. In the last two days, more than one crore people were vaccinated, despite this, those who spread confusion through false images remain silent on this,” Patra said.

Quoting Congress leader’s tweet, national in-charge of BJP’s Information and Technology department, Amit Malviya said, “That Rahul Gandhi has to use an old picture to claim success of the Mahapanchayat just shows how the propaganda to call it a well attended ‘farmers’ agitation hasn’t worked. It is political. With religious slogans raised, it leaves no one in doubt what the actual motivation is.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Monday, inaugurated nine medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh, virtually from Siddhartha Nagar.

These nine medical colleges are situated in the districts of Siddharth Nagar, Etah, Hardoi, Pratapgarh, Fatehpur, Deoria, Ghazipur, Mirzapur and Jaunpur.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that the new medical colleges, besides giving a boost to health infrastructure, would also create new job avenues for the youth and those wanting to make a career in the medical sector.

“The image of Purvanchal, till now, was that hundreds of children die here due to encephalitis. Now Purvanchal will be known as a region that gives the light of health. This is the first time that so many medical colleges are being inaugurated at one go,” he said.

He further said that the previous government lacked the political will to ensure the welfare of the people.

“They only ensure their own welfare and that of their families. The cycle of corruption ran very fast,” he said in an obvious reference to the Samajwadi Party whose election symbol is cycle.

Meanwhile, eight Medical Colleges have been sanctioned under the centrally sponsored scheme for ‘Establishment of new medical colleges attached with district/ referral hospitals’ and one Medical College at Jaunpur has been made functional by the state government through its own resources.

Under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme, preference is given to underserved, backward and aspirational districts.

The scheme aims to increase the availability of health professionals, correct the existing geographical imbalance in the distribution of medical colleges and effectively utilise the existing infrastructure of district hospitals.

Under three phases of the Scheme, 157 new medical colleges have been approved across the nation, out of which 63 medical colleges are already functional.
