“There are two Indias, one India is for the extremely rich people – for those who have immense wealth, immense power, for those who don’t need a job, those who don’t need water connection,electricity connections, but for those who control the heartbeat of the country,” an agitated Rahul said in Lok Sabha.

Referring to job and unemployment, Rahul Gandhi said that 3 crore people lost jobs in 2021.

“UPA Govt pulled 27 crore people out of poverty in 10 years. This is not our data, this is factual data. You pushed 23 crore people back into poverty,” Rahul Gandhi said.
