Don’t get provoked, think twice, vote for country: Priyanka’s appeal to voters

Chitradurga, Apr 23 (IANS): Senior Congress leader, Priyanka Gandhi, on Tuesday appealed to voters of Karnataka not to get provoked by hate speeches.

She also stressed that the voters must think twice before voting.

Addressing a huge gathering in Chitradurga located in the central part of Karnataka, Priyanka Gandhi gave a call to the electorate to vote for the country and for their development too.

“What is happening in the country is wrong. The poor, middle class, labourers are being bulldozed to benefit the few. National wealth is being given away to a few people,” Priyanka Gandhi underlined.

She charged that the Centre did not give drought relief to Karnataka. “The demand for AIIMS at Raichur city in north Karnataka has been made for years, but no discussion has been done on it till date.

“From the Kalasa-Banduri scheme, people will get water. The central government is denying permissions. For the Upper Bhadra Project which provides water to Tumakuru, Chikkamagaluru and Davanagere districts, the funds are not being released,” Priyanka Gandhi slammed.

She alleged that the central government had caused a Rs 62,000 crore loss in terms of funds to Karnataka.

“The Prime Minister claims that he works day and night. However, why this biased mindset? The state of Himachal Pradesh which was in crisis also did not get anything. It shows there is no concern for the nation,” Priyanka Gandhi attacked.

She also announced that if the Congress was voted to power, the Kadu Golla community would get ST status.

“Minimum Support Price (MSP) will become law. There would be no GST on agricultural products. There would be insurance cover for crops where compensation would be given in 30 days in case of crop loss, if the Congress is voted to power,” Priyanka Gandhi assured.

She added that during the election there is no talk about inflation, health and only provocative speeches are made and the BJP ensures the collapse of governments.

“The media says it’s a master stroke and does not raise the question of erosion of democratic values,” Priyanka Gandhi pointed out.

“I am here to talk about the country which you have built with your hard work. There is the harsh truth of inflation, unemployment and on the other hand there is talk about the country achieving great heights. The struggle in the lives of people has been increasing. Petrol, diesel, gold, silver and LPG cylinder costs have gone up. There is no MSP for crops but there is GST everywhere. The farmer is sinking under load of loans, there is no talk of loan waiver. But, few are benefitted,” Priyanka Gandhi stated.

She added, “The bank account of the Congress party has been seized and two CMs have been sent to jail. Cases have been lodged against Opposition leaders to weaken them. There are talks about changing the Constitution if the BJP is given 400 seats.”

“This has to be observed carefully. The Constitution empowers you. It provides safety and security, and voting power. If someone is talking about changing the Constitution, they are talking about changing your lives,” she noted.

Priyanka Gandhi said, “Hindu religion, values of politics give the message of service and path of truth. Lord Ram also gives the same message. Mahatma Gandhi and all other PMs, cutting across party lines, followed those principles. It is not to be seen anywhere now.”

    Unbelievable!! Karnataka Congress Government has categorized the ENTIRE Muslim community as a backward caste! NCBC confirms that all castes of Muslims included in the list of OBCs by Karnataka Government for reservation in employment and educational institutions! National Commission for Backward Castes slams the decision and said Muslims in India are not untouched by the social divisions. Look at the secret decisions of Congress! Their real agenda.......

    I think twice...she is Priyanka Vadra Vote to congress is worst foolish idea to go country bankrupt. After Rajiv Gandhi, congress tried to gain publicity by telling 'BJP is Hindu Party' and now Hindus realized...thanks to Congress. When minorities united to vote congress, there is no wrong in Hindus to united for vote BJP.

    Priyankaji, As a voter I am very confused 1. In lok sabha Rahul is not a performer. 2. While he was MP of amethi, he hardly visited his constituency. 3. As well after winning in wayanad, only now he shows himself in the constituency while campaigning. 4. He is in I,N,D,I alliance, where no one declared a PM candidate, apart from Rahul's doubtful winning in any constituency in 2024, i wonder very much why these tv channels are still projecting Rahul is a future PM, if the alliance wins. 5. Why these tv channels are much discussing on congress manifesto rather DMK'S manifesto or per se is there any manifesto for the other alliance. 6. Forget rahul is confused to fight in amethi, but understand , a common man is confused with the alliance, (a) no common manifesto (b) why congress manifesto only discussed (c) why DMK'S is not discussed (6) other parties have released their manifesto or not. Poor common man is scratching his head ???

    She has love for the poor. Her dad sacrificed his life to the country. So she should be elected as PM if congress gets majority.

    Look at every bhakths, they keep saying Gandhi fly looted the country, for 7decades. Thats it, not a word more, not any evidence, no nothing. Even after 10years of Modi led BJP, they are yet to find any wrong doing of Gandhi fly and congress. It is like they are in a mental block and can not get over it. By the way whatever congress done in last 7decades, Modi led BJP is selling it to private businesses. BJP is wealthiest political party in just 10years. If this does not ring the bell, that BJP looting country, what else can.

    You had 7 decades to eradicate poverty and you have not done jack. You had enough time in the world to do everything you have said. Why want there no action at all. Its too late now , No use of pointing fingers at others when they rule. Fleeing to a distant safe constituency and winning on Muslim votes to keep the political career on 'survival' basis , is sending wrong signals, Madame.

    Congress could not eradicate poverty fully. From a country which was 80perc poor in 1947, it got to a level it was 15perc in 2014. It was gradual reduction in poverty. Modi led BJPs outstanding achievement is poverty is now increased to 28percent. BJP fans should stop talking about poverty, as it added more poor, that too in crores.

    Under BJP selected few are growing richer and the poor section is finding life is burdened with taxes (GST)> Not only BJP agenda is mainly focused on expanist motto and Hindutva philosophy and above all partial dictatorial approach towards country's masses. We need a change from the leaders who carry only the pride and are egoistic and many other sub products! 😫

    Look who is talking of national wealth. For almost 7 decades it the country was running as if the family regime was the King of India and now when the country is in safe hands making growth day by day, they want to take the credit from another man. What was not make possible over the 7 decades, is been cleared, cleaned and made to recognise within a decade.

    On one side we have andhbakths and then a few who are yet to come out of the colonial mindset. India won independence in 1947. This is 2024. This fanatic indulgence with fake Gandhis only speaks volumes of their ignorance.
