Mahuva (Gujarat), Apr 15 (UNI): Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday claimed that if voted to power, his party's government would not increase income tax to burden the middle class for implementation of of his NYAY scheme that promises to transfer Rs 72,000 in the accounts of women members of each of the 5 crore poorest families in the country.

Addressing an election rally in Mahuva of Gujarat, Gandhi said that five years back people had shown faith in Narendra Modi with the belief that he would do something. Gujarat had also shown full faith and given all the 26 seats to him who had made three big promises; giving jobs to 2 crore youths every year, bringing Rs 15 lakh in the account of every body and better prices to the farmers for their crops.

"Though the promise to put Rs 15 lakh in everyone's account was a lie, yet the idea was good. I had asked the think-tank of Congress five months ago during a closed door meeting as to how much money can actually be transferred to the 20 per cent population or 25 crore people or 5 crore poorest families in the country every year without harming our economy. They replied that Rs 72,000 can be given to each of these families. And it will not harm the economy and the system the way the demonetization and Gabbar Singh Tax (GST) of Modi regime has been done," he said.

"Modi's 15 lakh was a lie but my promise is a truth. When I asked our think-tank how it would not affect the economy and I got a very good reply. They said that when people lost their money due to demonetization and GST they stopped buying goods which resulted in to closure of small businesses and factories in the country and today we have highest unemployment of last 45 years. This is mainly due to demonetization and GST. But under the NYAY scheme when money will be transferred to the account of 20 per cent of the population they would start purchasing things and the small businesses and factories would start running again and our people would get jobs in them in turn. This scheme would drive our economy the way an engine runs the train," he said.

The Congress president claimed the scheme, which would benefit the small businessmen immensely, would be implemented soon after winning the election. The fund would be sent in the accounts of women members of the families.

"Modi ji will ask from where the money will come. He had asked similar question when we promised about the farmer's loan waiver and whenever we talk about any scheme for the poor. He has given Rs 35,000 crore to Ambani in Rafale deal and six airports and lands to Adani. Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi and Vijay Malya have all fled with our money. Now I promise that the money for Nyay scheme would come from the pockets of these burglars. We will not take it from the pockets of the middle class and won't increase the income tax," he said.

The Congress president reiterated that the Modi government has waived Rs 3.50 lakh crores of loans of the 10 to 15 big corporates but has not waived the loan of farmers.

"Congress as per its promise has waived the loans of farmers in MP, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and other states ruled by it like Karnataka and Punjab," he said.

He alleged that big industrialists including Anil Ambani were getting benefited from the crop insurance scheme. He said that after being voted to power Congress government would start a separate budget for farmers which would let them know the MSP (Maximum Selling Price) for various crops well in advance. The government would also ensure that no farmer was jailed for failure of loan repayment.

"Billionaires like Anil Ambani, Mehul Choksi, Nirav Modi, Vijay Malya are not in jail despite huge loan default but small farmers were jailed due to small loan default. This is an injustice to them. Either both or none should be jailed. I want to remove this fear from the hearts of farmers and assure that they will not be jailed if Congress is voted to power. Modi ji is trying to make two India; one, a shining one for 15 to 20 of the Industrialists close to him for whom all the facilities are easily available while the other in which common people lose their money for education of children and basic health facilities," he said.

Rahul also talked about the Rafale issue and attacked PM Modi. He alleged that Modi himself negotiated it and got the deal given to Anil Ambani. He also increased the price of the aircraft and changed other clauses of the deal.

"Ambani has never made an aircraft while HAL which was about to get the deal during our regime was doing so for the past 70 years. The HAL has in fact done the maintenance of aircraft like Mirage and MiG which dropped bombs in Pakistan," he said.

He reiterated that Chowkidars (guards) were meant for rich people and Modi was not the chowkidar of the commoners but was that of Industrialists like Ambani and Adani whom along with other 5 to 10 such people he was giving all the water, land and electricity.

Taking another dig at Modi he said that he won't lie to make false promises like Modi.

"I can't promise Rs 15 lakh to each one's back accounts as it would ruin the economy but I would put as much as would not do any harm. I can't talk about giving 2 crore jobs but would certainly give the 22 lakh government jobs lying vacant and 10 lakh jobs in panchyats were also possible. The farmers can be assisted and their loans can be waived. On the one side there was injustice and falsity while on our side was truth and justice," he said.
