"Country's property given to billionaires..." Priyanka Gandhi hits back at PM Modi amid Adani-Ambani row

Raebareli: Congress national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday replied to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's attack on her brother and former Congress President Rahul Gandhi where he had raised the Congress' silence on Adani-Ambani and questioned if there was a secret deal between the Congress and the industrialists.

Priyanka Gandhi countered, accusing the BJP of favouring billionaires and transferring national assets to them.
"PM Modi is giving a lot of clarifications in the last few days. PM Modi calls my brother 'Shehzada' but he himself is 'Shehenshah'. He is giving clarifications because people are seeing that the entire country's property has been given to some billionaires. Airports, roads, coal factories, everything has been given to them," Priyanka Gandhi said while speaking to ANI.

Priyanka said that the real face of the Prime Minister is coming out in front of the public, hence, he is giving such statements.
Reacting to BJP's constant criticism of the Congress Manifesto, Priyanka Gandhi said that PM Modi dislikes it because it focuses solely on concrete plans for the betterment of various sectors such as youth, women, and addressing inflation, as well as returning the nation's wealth.
"PM Modi does not like our manifesto because our manifesto only talks about work, about what we are going to do for the youth, women, inflation, returning the country's wealth back to the people. That's why the PM has been attacking our manifesto from the beginning. They are making such strange statements regarding our manifesto that we have to see for ourselves what it is, and where it came from...What are the real issues of the elections? Unemployment, inflation, oppression of women, the struggle of the people, the problems of the farmers, these are the issues elections should be fought on," Priyanka Gandhi said.
Brushing off the controversy surrounding Sam Pitroda's remark as "useless", Priyanka Gandhi said, "PM Modi plays full toss on these useless issues. I challenge him to play full toss on employment, inflation, and atrocities on women, only then I will believe that yes someone has played."

Earlier, speaking about how India is a shining example of democracy in the world, Pitroda said that the people of the country have "survived 75 years in a very happy environment where people could live together leaving a few fights here and there".
Pitroda, in an interview with 'The Statesman', while reflecting upon the democracy in India said, "We have survived 75 years in a very happy environment where people could live together, leaving aside few fights here and there. We could hold a country together as diverse as India, where people on the east look like Chinese, people on the West look like Arab, people on the North look like white and maybe people on the South look like Africans."
