Rahul Gandhi hits out at govt over policy on Kashmir

Rahul Gandhi: If voted to power, will cap GST at a decent level PDP-BJP responsible for bloodshed in Kashmir: Gandhi
Sammy Stanley | 15 February, 2018, 16:14

On a four-day election campaign in poll-bound Karnataka, Rahul was responding to BJP state president BS Yeddyurappa's "Election Hindu" jibe at him. "Even secretaries in ministries are appointed by the RSS".

"Modiji, people of this country gave you work, farmers had given you work, youth had told you that our competition is with China. Then you have the BJP trying to shed crocodile tears and distance itself from that FIR", he said.

Gandhi, who has often referred to GST as "Gabbar Singh Tax" for the way it has been enforced, said senior Congress leaders like Manmohan Singh and P. Chidambaram had suggested testing GST as a pilot project before enforcing it nationwide, but the government did not listen to them and implemented it overnight. "In every single ministry in India at the national level, there is an OSD from RSS working with the minister.the minister is not operating on his own", he said, interacting with professionals and the business community.

"Misogyny runs deep within the BJP and PM Modi's statements are a classic example of this deplorable mindset", said a tweet posted along with the video with the hashtag "#MisogynisticModi" on the Congress Twitter handle.

FDA approves first blood test to help diagnose concussions
The test accurately predicted the presence of brain lesions 97.5% of the time, proving its mettle as a new tool in brain injuries. That limitation in research data dictated the FDA's approval of the blood test's marketing to adults.

"The setting up of the NITI Ayog after scrapping the Planning Commission is another instance of the RSS hand in running the NDA government", he alleged.

Mr Gandhi blamed the BJP government for not heeding to its demand for a simplified GST but insisted on a five-tier tax structure.

"This is the fundamental conflict we have with BJP". But they did not listen. "We are entering a new phase in the world, where you're going to see increased tensions between the Chinese, Russians and USA".

"Instead of the RBI or Jaitley, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had suddenly declared the note ban (on November 8, 2016) on the advice of an RSS ideologue", asserted Gandhi on the fourth day of his visit to the state's northern region.
