Rahul Gandhi promises 'minimum income guarantee' to poor if Congress wins 2019 LS polls
RAIPUR: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday announced in Chhattisgarh that his party would ensure 'minimum income guarantee' to the poor if Congress comes to power after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“Congress has decided to provide minimum income to the poor in all the states. The poor will get a minimum income directly into their bank account. This scheme will be first of its kind in the world as no other country has introduced such a scheme so far”, he said.
“Nobody will remain hungry and nobody will remain poor”, he said. "We will do this in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and all other states as well. For the first time, Congress is going to implement this historic decision. All you have to do is to give us an opportunity”, he added.
Rahul Gandhi made the remarks at the 'Kisaan Abhaar Sammelan' held here to express gratitude to Chhattisgarh's people, particularly farmers, for voting the party to power in the state after a gap of 15 years.
拉胡尔在当地举行的“Kisaan Abhaar Sammelan”集会上发表讲话，感谢恰蒂斯加尔邦的人民，特别是感谢农民，在时隔15年后把选票投给国大党。
Gandhi said the Congress had promised in its election manifesto to waive off farm loans within 10 days after coming to power but waived off farm loans just a day after its government took over in Chhattisgarh.
“Why did the BJP government not waive off farm loans? Narendra Modi government did not do so citing shortage of funds. BJP and its government have enough money to write off the loans of 15-odd industrialists and to extend the benefit of Rs 30,000 crore Anil Ambani owned company”, he said adding that there is no dearth of funds and that the BJP government had different priorities.
The Congress president alleged that the Modi government made desperate attempts to dilute the provisions of the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013, and later tried to push ill-intended amendments after coming to power in 2014.
“This 2013 law provides for giving a compensation up to four times of the market rate in the event of land being acquired by the farmers. Besides, the act also provides that the lands of farmers cannot be acquired without their consent and to return the land to its original owner if the concerned project fails to come up within five years of land acquisition”, he said adding that Congress, once it comes to power, will strictly implement this law.
He further said that Chhattisgarh has already set the ball rolling by returning the land acquired from the tribal farmers of Bastar for the Tata Steel’s integrated Steel Plant project.

After 67 years of Congress you still have no idea how to solve poverty. People still waiting for handouts. No more. Unless real development takes place poverty cannot be eradicated. For that Congress must never come to power.
