Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over a media report which had claimed that a company owned by BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay had recorded huge increase in turnover after the saffron party came to power in 2014.
"The Chowkidaar of India is quiet even after his right hand man's son has made crores from Rs 50,000," apparently referring to Modi's earlier statement that he does not want to behave like a prime minister but a 'chowkidar' (watchman) of the country's wealth.
Rahul Gandhi began his second day of Navsarjan Yatra in Vadodara by attending a prayer meeting at Sankalp Bhoomi.
Taking potshots at Start up India initiative he said, Have you heard of Start up India? Have you heard about the icon of start up India JayShah?.
Rahul has raked up the issue to target the prime minister as well as Amit Shah at about 10 small and big public meetings that he addressed throughout the day.
"You enjoy taking selfies with your phone, but that phone has given jobs to Chinese youth," Rahul said. "'Made in China' is happening because Modiji's focus is not on job creation. I want that when Chinese boys and girls use a phone, they should say 'Made in India', 'Made in Gujarat', he added.
Targeting BJP, Rahul said, "It is the BJP's thinking that till women remain silent, they are good. The moment a woman opens her mouth, they want to shut her up." He then went on to criticise RSS. "Have you seen a single woman in an RSS shakha in shorts? Why aren't women allowed in RSS? They (BJP) have so many women in the party, but I have not seen a single woman in RSS," Rahul said.
