Rae Bareli: Campaigning for her mother Sonia Gandhi in Rae Bareli, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday raised the poll pitch and directly hit out at Narendra Modi over the issue of women empowerment.
Speaking at a poll meeting here, Priyanka had a word of advice for Modi: “If you speak of women empowerment, don’t listen to our phone conversations behind closed doors. Give us power as individuals.”
“If they speak of women empowerment, the women need to know how they plan to do it,” Priyanka said.
Slamming the concentration of power in “one hand”, Priyanka rued, “It is the misuse of politics that you gain power with the help of people and then transfer it all into one hand.”
Earlier in the day, speaking at another poll meeting here, Priyanka slammed the BJP for playing divisive politics.
She asked the electorate of this Gandhi family bastion, “You have to decide if you want to vote for a party that divides people or for one that takes everyone along.”
“These elections are about unity and strengthening the identity of India,” she went on to add.
Priyanka also slammed Modi without naming him, saying, “If all power is concentrated in the hands of one person, is it a good thing? Or should people have power?”
It may be noted that the BJP has concentrated its 2014 Lok Sabha poll campaign around Modi, pitching the Gujarat model of development for the nation.
Taking at dig at both the BJP and the AAP, Priyanka noted that “others talk about eradicating corruption, but it is the Congress that gave you a tool to fight it – RTI.”
“Parties come before you and say they want to wipe out corruption, but they don`t say how,” she added.
On the issue of personal attacks, Priyanka said people should rise above such politics.
Stressing that there should be inclusive growth which benefits everyone, the Congress chief`s daughter said elections should be fought on the issues and problems face by the people.
