In a bid to regain their stronghold in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress Party is leaving no stone unturned. With assembly elections looming on the horizon, the party is in the midst of a slew of public meetings to win over the electorate.

Recently, Rahul Gandhi, a prominent leader of the Congress Party, addressed a fervent gathering in Shajapur, Madhya Pradesh. This rally became a platform for Gandhi to voice out his concerns and criticisms against both the Central Modi government and the state’s Shivraj government.

Stirring the Political Pot

Taking a direct jab at the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi commented on their political strategy, saying, “They spread hatred wherever they go.” This statement is a reflection of the ongoing narrative wherein the Congress often accuses the BJP of polarizing tactics.

Gandhi didn’t stop there. Delving deeper into national politics, he reiterated a long-standing accusation, alleging that Prime Minister Modi has always shown undue favor to businessman Gautam Adani. The Adani Group, with its vast business interests, has been at the center of many political debates in India.

Media and Its Alleged Bias

One of the highlights of the rally was when Gandhi addressed the role of media in today’s political landscape. He expressed his concerns, stating, “The media will broadcast Modi ji 24 hours, feature Shivraj Singh, but our coverage is almost non-existent.” Gandhi insinuated that the lack of media focus on the Congress is because influential business magnates, like Adani, control the media narrative.

On Governance and Administration

A poignant point Rahul Gandhi touched upon was his belief that the country is being controlled by a select few. He mentioned that merely “90 officers make laws and run the country,” highlighting a narrative of centralized decision-making and a lack of inclusive governance.

Caste Census: The Forefront Issue

Gandhi’s speech also brought the matter of the caste census into focus. By raising questions about the representation and number of Other Backward Classes (OBCs), he emphasized the importance of recognizing caste-based disparities and addressing them adequately.

All these points reflect the multi-pronged approach that Rahul Gandhi is employing to challenge the ruling party. With the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh drawing closer, political temperatures are soaring, and the Congress Party, with leaders like Gandhi at its helm, is gearing up for a rigorous battle ahead.
