Hitting out hard at the Narendra Modi government, Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi, on Tuesday, said that the incumbent government has no concern for women’s rights. He slammed the Modi government saying, “It is the BJP’s thinking that till women remain silent, they are good. The moment a woman opens her mouth, they want to shut her up.” He also took on RSS saying, “Have you seen a single woman in an RSS shakha in shorts? Why aren’t women allowed in RSS? They (BJP) have so many women in the party, but I have not seen a single woman in RSS.” He added that Gujarat doesn’t have a place in the top 10 when we talk about girl education.

Rahul Gandhi attacked the government on various fronts. He also raised the issue of abysmal job growth saying, “You enjoy taking selfies but this phone gave employment to Chinese youth, it is made in China because Modi Ji’s focus is not on jobs.” On being asked questions about the safety of journalists and the murder of Gauri Lankesh, he responded saying, “Why do you think Gauri Lankesh was shot dead? Do you think truth can be hidden? Truth cannot be suppressed, it can only be concealed for a time.”

Rahul Gandhi is currently on a visit to Gujarat, which is scheduled to go to polls this year. As per an Indian Express report, Rahul Gandhi has begun the second phase of Navsarjan Yatra on Monday and has travelled through Ahmedabad, Kheda Anand and Vadodara.
