Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has suggested that if India’s farmers, workers and labourers were strong, India would not need to deploy army, navy and air force at borders, especially at Indo-China border. He had claimed that if the farmers and labourers were protected and empowered, China would not dare to intrude into Indian territories.
He was addressing weavers in Erode in Tamil Nadu on Sunday.
Interestingly, Muhammed Imran, a professor who translated Rahul Gandhi’s speech at Erode, collapsed at the rally venue minutes after interpreting his English speech into Tamil.
According to reports, 35-year-old Imran who was seen passionately translating the speeches delivered by Rahul Gandhi during his address to the party workers in Erode fainted a few minutes of Rahul Gandhi’s speech. He has been taken to a nearby hospital.
It is not yet clear regarding the reason why the professor fainted at the Congress rally.
On day two of his three-day election campaign in Tamil Nadu, Rahul focused on attacking Modi rather than the AIADMK dispensation, which he sought to replace with a government that “cannot be controlled by BJP”. Rahul said BJP’s economic policies had “dealt a severe blow to farmers, weavers, labourers and MSMEs”, who are foundation of the country.
“The Chinese understand that the man running this country is weak. They understand that the PM has destroyed the economy of India. That is why they are inside our territory,” Rahul said at Dharapuram town in Tirupur district of Tamil Nadu.
“As we speak today, thousands of Chinese troops are occupying our territory and the man with a 56-inch chest cannot even say the word China. That is the reality of our country,” he added.
