JALANDHAR:  Hailing Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s promise to give Rs 72,000 per annum to poor families of the country, if Congress is voted to power, Member of Parliament (MP) Santokh Singh Chaudhary claimed that Congress would bring “Achche Din” for poor in real sense, unlike Modi, who brought “Achche Din” only for Modis, Ambanis, Adanis and Chowkses.

 

“While Modi brought Achche Din only for crorepatis, Rahul Gandhi has rolled out his vision in the form of the blueprint of the Minimum Income Guarantee Scheme for 25 crore poor of the country”, MP Chaudhary said.

 

Modi, who promised of giving Rs 15 lakh to each by bringing back the black money lodged in the foreign bank, later on, termed it as “Chunavi Jumla”, but Rahul Gandhi not only promised Rs 72,000 per annum to 20 per cent of India’s poorest families if Congress comes to power in 2019, but also rolled out the blueprint to make it possible, MP added.

 

It is pertinent to mention here that Congress president Rahul Gandhi has promised to give Rs 72,000 per annum to 20 per cent of India's poorest families if Congress comes to power in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The scheme will benefit five crore families and 25 crore individuals directly.

 

While rolling out the scheme at New Delhi, Rahul Gandhi said "After doing all the calculations several times, we have found that this scheme is fiscally possible," 

 

Gandhi said that the Congress would implement the scheme in a phased manner and it would benefit 5 crore families and 25 crore individuals
