Rahul accuses BJP of helping the rich; Modi says Cong dividing people
Blame game starts as dates get announced for polls in Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and MP
Congress President Rahul Gandhi accused the ruling BJP of working for the interest of a few rich people and ignoring the farmers and other sections of the society. He said his party will ensure implementation of the Tribal Rights Bill if voted to power in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajashthan.
"If you want to help out the rich, do it...but also help the farmers and other poor sections of the society. If `3 lakh crore of the rich can be written off, then why not give such concessions to farmers and other poor sections of the society?" he asked.
Speaking at an event organised by a tribal organisation, Adivasi Ekta Parishad, he said, "The Tribal Bill is not a gift, but right of the tribal people. The tribal people must have their rights over land, water and forests."
