Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday targeted the government, raising the issue of poverty. Rahul alleged that the middle class of the country has become poor now and the condition of the poor has worsened.
Sharing a news that claimed that the number of poor in the country has increased rapidly in the last eight years, Rahul attacked the government. He questioned where are those people who used to say that “achche din” are about to come.
In the report shared by Rahul on his Twitter account, it has been claimed that in 2020, 76 million people have gone below the poverty line and the number of poor is increasing. In a tweet, Rahul asked, “Those who were earlier in the middle class are now poor. Those who were poor earlier are now being crushed. Where did those who used to say that good days are coming?
जो पहले मध्यवर्ग में थे, अब ग़रीब हैं
जो पहले ग़रीब थे, अब कुचले जा रहे हैं
कहाँ गए जो कहते थे अच्छे दिन आ रहे हैं? pic.twitter.com/MqgjLh090I

Congress also alleged on its official Twitter account that people kept on wasting their best days while waiting for ‘Acche Din’ to arrive. A day earlier, Rahul had also attacked the government over the rising prices of oil and LPG.
It is worth noting that Rahul had shared another report a day earlier, claiming that lakhs of families are forced to light the stove due to the increase in the price of LPG. The Congress leader had said in the tweet, “Far away from the rhetoric of development, lakhs of families forced to light the chulha. Modi ji’s development vehicle is in reverse gear and brakes have also failed.
In the news cited by Rahul Gandhi, on the basis of a survey report, it was told that due to the increase in the price of LPG cylinders, 42 percent of the households have started using wood again for cooking.
