Rahul Gandhi terms UPA as historic
Claiming the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance Government at the Centre as historic, vice-president Rahul Gandhi today said it was able to bring all round development to the country during the last ten years..
Addressing a huge crowd at the Municipal Stadium here,he said history was created in all sectors as far as development was concerned during the period.
This was possible with the vibrant and collective leadership of the ruling conglomeration which stressed on equality among all religions and called for further cooperation among all the communities for more development.
'We have equal right for education, employement, food and information regardless of religious affinity,' he said.
However, the Bharatiya Janata Party is attempting to create division among people to meet their nefarious intentions, he alleged.
Stating his party stood for equality for all,Mr Rahul, who was here for campaigning for his party candidate T Siddique in Kasargod Lok Sabha seat, said it wanted to uplift all to middle class status.
Underlining the need to place more emphasis on trade and industry, he said if came to power again,the UPA would be linking all important cities of the country.
