“There is no democracy in India. If some of you think there is, then it’s in your imagination”: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Dec 24: Rahul Gandhi, in a sharp attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the government over the farmer protests, said today there was “no democracy” in India and those who stood up against the PM were labelled terrorists, “even if it was (RSS chief) Mohan Bhagwat”.

“PM Modi is making money for the crony capitalists. Whoever will try to stand against him will be called a terrorist – be it farmers, labourers and even Mohan Bhagwat,” the Congress leader said, referring to the chief of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the BJP’s ideological mentor.

“There is no democracy in India. If some of you think there is, then it’s in your imagination”.

Rahul Gandhi was speaking after leading a delegation of Congress workers to President Ram Nath Kovind to seek his intervention in ending the massive protests near Delhi over farm laws. The Congress has also demanded a joint session of parliament to discuss the laws.

The Congress march led by Rahul Gandhi to the presidential palace Rashtrapati Bhawan was stopped by the police and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and several other party leaders were taken into custody and driven away in buses.

“What the youth and all the people of this country should know is that the PM is an incompetent man, who knowns nothing. He is an incompetent man who only listens to the crony capitalists. He does whatever they tell him,” he said.

“The farmers and labourers are uniting now. But like always, the moment someone speaks against the government of the day, they are labelled anti-nationals and terrorists. This is unfortunate, but that is what is happening today. People’s voices are being stifled,” said the Congress leader.
