BJP’s double engine has failed: Kanhaiya Kumar
PANAJI: Attacking Prime Minister Narendra on various issues, Congress young leader Kanhaiya Kumar on Thursday said that the ‘double engine’ of BJP has failed to give employment to youths and address issues of bahujan samaj. He was interacting with the Bahujan Samaj of Goa in the ‘Bahujan Samvad’ programme at Mapusa. “Had the double engine of BJP functioning well, then youths of Bihar would have not entered Goa in search of jobs. BJP is ruling in Bihar and also at center, then why both of these engines have failed.” He questioned. He also said that double engine has also failed to restart mining of Goa and also provide employment to the youths. “BJP here is doing false propaganda of ten years of power and development, that too using money of taxpayers by displaying banners on electricity poles.” He said.

Attacking Modi, Kanhaiya Kumar said that the former has bought an airplanerupees 8500 crores and a vehicle costing 16 crores. “People are taking responsibility for paying tax, containing the spread of corona. But what the government is doing.” He questioned. He said that the government has finished the public sector, which is against the bahujan samaj. “Constitution has given us equality and Congress has given us freedom, liberation. Congress works in the interest of people and I am confident that it will address the issue of unemployment once in power.” He said. He appealed to save the foundation of democracy. “we all need to introspect that a party which didn’t take part in the freedom struggle of India, will never work in the interest of the nation. It tends to sell the nation to their crony capitalist friends.” He said. Shambhu Bhau Bandekar said that bahujan samaj should see that Congress wins with majority as it has always worked in their interest.
North Goa District president Vijai Bhike said that bahujan Samaj has contributed for liberation of Goa, to preserve the identity of Goa. “Congress is the only option for people of Goa.” He said.
