Most difficult job in India is to be an honest politician: Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat

NEW DELHI: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on September 26 said that “it was difficult to be an honest politician in India”, ANI reported.
“Most difficult job in India is to be an honest politician. An honest politician suffers the most, I have experienced it,” Rahul was quoted as saying by ANI.
He also targeted BJP for “no planning” during the implementation of GST and demonetization.
“There was no planning in implementation of Goods and Services Tax. Dr. Manmohan Singh immediately after PM Narendra Modi’s announcement of demonetization had said, ‘It is a criminal act’,” he said.
Addressing a gathering in Gujarat’s Tankara, the Congress president promised that his party will work for the upliftment of farmers and weaker sections of the society.
“If the Congress Party forms the government in the upcoming polls in Gujarat, it will work for the interest of farmers, workers, and weaker sections of the society. Modiji’s Gujarat model has failed. We need old Gujarat model of Amul, which aims for development of all,” Rahul said, adding that PM Modi’s “Gujarat model” has failed.
The Congress vice president also raised the issue of unemployment and farmers’ plight in the farm-rich belt of the state, which is dominated by Patidars who have been demanding reservation in government jobs and education under the other backward classes (OBC) category.
“We listen to each and everyone clearly and accordingly we make policies. It’s all about listening to the public but the BJP never listens to anyone because they believe that they know everything already. They focus on marketing and making speeches but no productive work is seen in return,” Rahul asserted.
Rahul Gandhi is on a three-day poll campaign Navsarjan tour of Gujarat and is scheduled to visit Khodaldham, the pilgrimage place for influential Leuva Patidars.
