Rahul Gandhi Accuses BJP of Distraction, Emphasizes Caste-based Census

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi criticized the BJP, asserting that the party uses discussions about India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, to divert attention from pressing issues. Speaking outside Parliament, Rahul Gandhi reiterated the demand for a caste-based census, accusing the government of evading the topic.

He labeled such discussions as distraction tactics, emphasizing that the key issue is ensuring that the poor receive their rightful share. Rahul Gandhi pointed out the appointment of an OBC Chief Minister in Chhattisgarh by the BJP but questioned the representation percentage within the government structure.

He highlighted the need for broader participation of OBCs, Dalits, and tribals in the institutional system, emphasizing that discussions about Nehru and others serve as distractions from this crucial issue.
