PM stole from Andhra Pradesh and gave money to Anil Ambani: Rahul

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi stole from the people of Andhra Pradesh and given the money to industrialist Anil Ambani, Congress president Rahul Gandhi alleged yesterday as he extended his party's support to Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu who is on a day-long fast here.

TDP president Naidu's fast, demanding that the Centre fulfil promises made during Andhra Pradesh's bifurcation in 2014 and alleging that the prime minister was not following 'raj dharma' by denying the state special status, became a rallying point for various opposition leaders, who gathered at the venue to back him.

"The prime minister has stolen from the people from Andhra Pradesh and he has given that money to Anil Ambani. That is the fact of the matter. "I want to let you know that we are all standing together. We are going to defeat the BJP-Mr. Narendra Modi," Gandhi said at Andhra Bhavan in an apparent reference to the Rafale fighter jet deal with France.

Ambani's company is offset partner of French firm Dassault Aviation under the deal. The government and Ambani had earlier rejected Gandhi's allegations of corruption and favouritism in the fighter aircraft deal.

Gandhi alleged that the prime minister lies on various issues "wherever he goes".

"...He goes to Andhra Pradesh, he lies about special status. He goes to the Northeast, he tells another lie over there. He goes to Maharashtra and he tells another lie over there. He has got absolutely no credibility left," Gandhi said.

In just a couple of months, opposition parties will show Modi exactly what the sentiment in the country is, he said.

Gandhi also referred to a report in The Hindu newspaper, claiming that critical provisions for anti-corruption penalties and making payments through an escrow account were dropped days before the signing of the inter-governmental agreement (IGA) between India and France in 2016 on Rs 59,000 crore Rafale deal.

The report, he said, clearly shows that the anti-corruption clause was removed by Modi.

Modi did not follow raj dharma in AP’s case, will teach him lesson: Chandrababu Naidu
New Delhi:
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu launched into a tirade against the BJP-led central government yesterday, alleging Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not following 'raj dharma' by denying the state special status. "(Former PM) Atal Bihari Vajpayee said 'raj dharma' was not followed in Gujarat (during the 2002 riots). Now, 'raj dharma' is not being followed in case of Andhra Pradesh. We have been denied what was rightfully ours," he claimed.
