Congress leader Rahul Gandhi hit out at the Modi government over rising fuel prices. Rahul accused the Centre of emptying the pockets of the common man and filling the pockets of its friends for free. “When you see the fast moving meter while filling fuel in your car at the petrol pump, do remember that the crude oil rates have not risen but fallen.

During a roadshow in Tamil Nadu's Kanyakumari, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on March 01 criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government by saying that his govt doesn't respect Tamil culture. He said, "Govt in Delhi doesn't respect Tamil culture. They've a CM who does everything they say. CM (E.K. Palaniswami) doesn't represent the state, he represents what Modi wants him to do. A person who bows before Modi can't represent Tamil Nadu.""He (CM) must not let RSS insult Tamil culture. Modi says '1 nation, 1 culture, 1 history'. Is Tamil not an Indian language? Is Tamil history not Indian or is Tamil culture not Indian? As an Indian, it's my duty to protect Tamil culture,"he added.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has destroyed the institutional balance in the country by 'systematically attacking elected institutions and free press' for the last six years. "A nation is a balance between its institutions, if that balance is disturbed then the nation is disturbed. That is the central idea. What are the institutions that make up the Indian nation? There are elected institutions Lok Sabha, Vidhan Sabhas, Panchayats. There is the judiciary, there is a supporting free press. These institutions together, they hold the nation together in place. What we have seen over the last six years, is a systematic attack on all these institutions. Democracy does not die with a bang, it dies slowly and I am sad to tell you that democracy in India is dead. It doesn't exist anymore. It is dead because one organization, the RSS has combined with huge finances to penetrate and disturb and destroy our institutional balance. That is what is happened," he said. Rahul also took a jibe at PM Modi during the event. Watch the full video for more details.
