Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi addressed party workers in Bhiwandi soon after he was granted bail by Maharashtra court on 16 November in a criminal defamation case filed against him for claiming that the RSS had killed Mahatma Gandhi.
In his address, Gandhi criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for favouring 15 businessmen and running the government on their instructions.
During his speech, he raised the issue of why there was no investigation taking place against "Modiji's industrialist friends" and asked, if anyone had seen "any rich people standing there?(in bank and ATM queues)"
Rahul Gandhi also pointed out the contradiction in the present government's ideology saying that he was fighting against all those who want to suppress the common man of India.
He said," ek taraf azaadi ki vichardhara; dusre taraf gulami ki; jinse main ladh raha hoon woh Hindustan ke har vyakti ko jhukana chahte hain."
