Rahul Gandhi to appear in court tomorrow in defamation case

Rahul Gandhi Narendra Modi helps industrialists, not farmers, says Rahul Gandhi at OBC convention

LAKSHMI IYER -- 'Coca-Cola founder was shikanji seller" Rahul Gandhi was roasted on the social media for claiming that the founder of Coca-Cola, John Pemberton, was a "shikanji seller' and that of McDonald's - brothers Richard and Maurice - were dhaba wallas. He said there was no dearth of skills in the country, especially among the OBC community, but finance was not made available to them.

"The RSS is a force working to divide the people".

Rahul also alleged that the Modi government has ignored the interests of farmers but has helped a small group of industrialists by waiving loans amounting to almost Rs 2.5 lakh crore.

Gandhi said "rich capitalists" will donate thousands of crores to Modi and "benefits will go to just those 15-20 rich people". "It is setting up one person against another".

Prior to 2016, the Congress used to host Iftar in one way or the other.

Rajesh Kunte, a local worker of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, had filed the case. "Everyone including MPs is afraid to speak", Gandhi said. The BJP doesn't listen to them, they only listen to the RSS.

Gandhi said Modi's remark that members of the Other Backward Classes lacked skills was a lie.

"Why are the banks not open to our farmers and small businesses?" That's a lie. There is no shortage of skills in the OBC category. The Congress Prez then drew parallels between India and the USA and cited the example of fast food firms such as Coca-Cola and McDonald's. "He made money and used it to start the Coca-Cola company", he said.

"People with skills are not rewarded in India. farmers work hard but you don't see them in the offices of Modi ji", he said.

He claimed that fast food chain McDonald's was started by a man who ran a dhaba, and that vehicle manufacturing companies like Ford, Mercedes and Honda were started by mechanics.

As many as 1,000 auto rickshaws will line up on the Mumbai streets on Tuesday when Congress President Rahul Gandhi visits the commercial capital of India.
