Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said he is taking huge interest in religious scriptures in an effort to take on saffron party. While addressing party workers, Rahul vowed to expose Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), for their misuse of religion for political goals.

“Nowadays I study the Upanishads and the Gita since I am fighting the RSS and BJP,” Rahul said. He further added that he would use the scriptures to counter the “narrative of hatred” they are propagating across the nation.

“BJP neither understands India nor the Hindu culture. Their headquarter in Nagpur only intends to use the religion to fulfill their agenda of dividing the nation on communal lines,” he added.

“I ask them (RSS men), my friend, you are doing this, you are oppressing people, but it is written in the Upanishad that all people are the same and how come you are contradicting what your own religion says,” Rahul further said.

Attacking PM Modi over completion of three years of his rule, Gandhi said the BJP-led regime has failed to fulfill the promises it made before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

The failure to create jobs is the major drawback of the Modi government. “I want to ask Modi ji, where are the 2 crore jobs per year which you promised to win the elections? You government has failed to provide employment to even one lakh people,” he said.

“Not only did you failed to create new jobs, but you dealt a lethal blow on small traders and daily wage earners by demonetising the currency. The whole world, except you and your minister, accepts the fact that demonetisation wrecked our economy,” Rahul added.

The Congress leader concluded his three-day visit of southern India. Addressing a rally in Guntur, Rahul said, Congress would provide special category status to Andhra Pradesh if it gets chosen to power in 2019.
