Congress believes in delivering on promises: Rahul Gandhi in MP rally

Bhopal, Nov 22: As the campaigning for the upcoming assembly polls reached its crescendo, the Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Friday addressed an election rally in ruling BJP's stronghold in Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh.

While hitting out at the BJP, Rahul said, "Truth is truth and lie is lie."

Rahul seemed very confident and said that Congress is about to form the government in MP.

Rahul said that his party believes in delivering on promises it makes and cited two landmark legislations to back his claim.

"The Congress does not believe in making tall promises. But whatever promises it has made, they have been fulfilled over the years," he said at an election rally at Lanji in this tribal-dominated district.

He said the Congress, heading the ruling coalition at the Centre since 2004, had promised to bring in laws related to Right to Information and Food security, and both of them are now a reality.

Rahul said that Congress is about to form the government in MP.

Following the implementation of the Right to Information Act, even a child can ask the Prime Minister, a Chief Minister or a bureaucrat to explain why he had taken a particular decision, the Amethi MP maintained.

In contrast, the ruling BJP in Madhya Pradesh is not known to walk the talk when it comes to acting on assurances.

The BJP, in run up to the 2008 Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, had promised to waive farm loans up to Rs 50,000, but the ruling party had not done so, Rahul said.

"These loans would be waived when the Congress comes to power in Madhya Pradesh after the November 25 elections."

Stressing on the importance of education, the Congress leader said India can claim to be a top rated power only when children of poor tribals go to college and become entrepreneurs.

As electioneering comes to an end on Saturday evening, leaders of various political parties, including BJP, are addressing rallies across the state.

People will vote to elect a new 230-member Assembly. MP goes to polls on Nov 25 and the results will be declared on Dec 8.
