Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Rahul Gandhi today said only two people’s writ runs in the country and those who stand against them are targeted with “false allegations”.

He said around 40 per cent of the country is facing a drought like situation and “50 farmers were committing suicide everyday”, but the Prime Minister “has nothing to say over the issue”.

Addressing the party’s ‘Save Democracy’ rally here, the Congress Vice President also hit out at the Modi government over imposition of President’s Rule in Uttarkhand saying it was dislodging elected governments.

“Only two people’s writ runs in the country. That is Mohan Bhagwat ji and Narendra Modi ji. And those who stand against them, speak against them face false allegations.

“Modiji promised ‘achche din’ and today the country is reeling under drought. 40 per cent of the country is reeling under drought. Everyday, 50 farmers are committing suicide. Latur, Vidarbha, Bundelkhand are burning. And Modiji has nothing to say about it,” Rahul said.

Along with Rahul, Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh also addressed the rally before the party leaders courted arrest at the Parliament Street police station when they were stopped from trying to march to Parliament. They were released after a short while.
