Congress president, who is known for opposing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said that he would not oppose him the day the PM stopped ‘dividing’ the country and started helping the poor.

In a poll campaign in Madhya Pradesh, Gandhi targeted PM Modi over his alleged closeness to businessmen and said that he worked for a handful of rich people.


“Someone said yesterday that Rahul Gandhi opposes Narendra Modi. I say that I do not oppose for the sake of opposing, there is a reason. I will stop opposing Narendra Modiji the day he starts helping the shopkeepers, labourers and the poor. The day he stops the work of dividing the country, I will stop opposing Modiji,” said Gandhi while addressing a public meeting in Morena district.

He further said that he will continue to oppose Modi and accused him of working for ’15-20’ rich people. Gandhi said “Until Modi talks about justice, waives the loans of farmers, stands with the labourers, whatever the rest of Hindustan says, Rahul Gandhi will stand against him, because I believe you people are behind the progress of the country”.

Accusing Modi to help their industrialist friends, Gandhi said “Two years ago, Modi had imposed demonetisation and made the entire country stand in queues. Did we see a Vijay Mallya or Nirav Modi or Anil Ambani in those queues? Modi helped them convert their black money into white”.
