Big things of Rahul’s press conference
1. RSS man in every institute: The opposition of the country’s media, electoral system stands on their own, but in every institute in the country, a man of RSS is sitting. He is under the control of the government. When we had the government, infrastructure was neutral. We didn’t interfere in that. Today it is with the government. If someone protests, then central investigative agencies are put against him.
2. Democracy ruined in eight years: How do you feel about the death of democracy? The democracy which was built in 70 years was destroyed in eight years.
3. The more truth I speak, the more attack: My problem is that I will speak the truth, I will work to raise the issue of inflation, unemployment. He who is afraid, he threatens. Those who are afraid of the condition of the country today, what they did not fulfill, are afraid of inflation and unemployment. They are afraid of the power of the people, because they lie for 24 hours.
