new Delhi: Assembly elections are currently underway in 5 states of the country. In this way, former president of Congress Rahul Gandhi Has shocked everyone by giving a statement. He has said that Congress and other parties like Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) are not winning elections due to occupation of India’s institutional structure and a complete financial media dominance by BJP.
During a video conference conversation with Professor Nicholas Burns of Harvard Kennedy School, Rahul Gandhi said that he needs institutional structures to contest elections, a judicial system that protects him, a media that is free. A full set of parities and structures that actually allow him to run a political party, but we do not have it.
Raising the Assam EVM issue, the Wayanad MP said, “Some people are sending videos of BJP candidates carrying EVMs in their cars, however, nothing is going on in the national media.”
Rahul Gandhi questioned the way the government functioned by referring to the ongoing farmer movement, lockdown and EVM in India. Rahul said that China is occupying the territory of India under the guise of dialogue, because China sees India as weak and divided internally. Rahul said that power has been reduced to one place, all decisions are being taken from one place, no decision is discussed in the cabinet.
