Rahul targeted the BJP at the event saying that the money collected from the exercise will go to the pockets of the industrialists.
He also responded to Union Information Minister Prakash Javadekar's statement where he said, "Rahul is a liar". Javadekar accused the Congress of trying to fan instability by misleading people over issues related to citizenship, which have triggered protests in different parts of the country, but asserted that people were with the government on the new citizenship law and NPR.
Reacting on Javadekar's statement Rahul said today that PM had said there's no detention centre in India and but a video shows a detention centre. So who is lying, he asked.
ON the occasion of 135th foundation day of Congress, Rahul is visiting Guwahati to address a public rally due to the anti-CAA protests in Assam. Whereas, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will preside over the party's foundation day event and will meet party workers in Lucknow.
