Rahul Gandhi slams Centre over centralisation of power

Mumbai: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over 'centralisation of power' at Centre. 

While addressing the management students of Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Juhu-Vile Parle, the Gandhi scion also attacked government over  slowing economic growth.

"The biggest problem India is facing today is massive centralisation of power. Everything is being done by three or four or five-six people. You can't solve problems by centralising power," he said.

"Exports and the rupee are collapsing. The impact of fuel price cuts is not being passed on to the consumers. There is a complete failure of management of economy," Gandhi said.

"The current PM used to ridicule our PM (Manmohan Singh) on the economy. Now, my advise to this PM is get to work," he said.

"We (Congress) are not just 40 plus people in Lok Sabha we are 20 per cent vote of the country," Gandhi said.

After the session, Gandhi embarked on a road march (padyatra) along with hundreds of Congress workers from the posh upmarket Bandra to the wretched slums of Dharavi.
