National Congress Spokesperson Alok Sharma on Friday accused the BJP government of giving more importance to cheetahs than to the unemployed youth of Gujarat. He was in Ahmedabad to campaign for the party before the Gujarat elections 2022.
He alleged the government of snatching people’s basic rights. He said, “This is a no-data government. They just want to click pictures and organise events. They care more about the Cheetah than about the real issues of people. One of the cheetahs brought to India from Namibia may be pregnant and let’s discuss it rather than addressing the issue of poverty, unemployed youth or farmers’ agitation.”
Eight cheetahs were reintroduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Madhya Pradesh’s Kuna National Park on September 17 – his birthday – as part of Project Cheetah.
“Congress ka kaam bolta hain. We emphasised on the right to information but this government wants to suppress common people’s rights. They completely finished the Right To Information. Asking questions has become difficult. If you ask questions against the government then you will hardly get any answer.” adds Sharma.
“Doctors, teachers, soldiers, farmers, everyone is unhappy and are protesting in Gujarat. It’s high time that the BJP government opens its eyes to the reality of the State. We are sure Gujarat elections 2022’s results will show a real picture to the government.” With this, Sharma raised several questions about vacancies in the engineering colleges, agricultural land acquisition, Lok Pal bill, privatisation in Gujarat and about rich becoming richer and poor becoming poorer in the saffron State.
