While the NDA celebrated its two years at the helm with pomp and show at India Gate, the mood was sombre barely 5 kilometres away at Rajghat, where hundreds of Congress workers participated in a ‘mashal julus’, or torch rally, led by the party’s vice-president, Rahul Gandhi, on Saturday evening.

The Congress was protesting against the Delhi government as well as the Central government over the power and water shortage in Delhi.

In a stinging attack on the Modi government, Rahul said that at a time when large swathes of the country was under a spell of drought, and farmers are committing suicide in Maharashtra’s Marathwada region, the Centre is celebrating its second anniversary at India Gate with song and dance by Bollywood personalities.

Rahul said both Modi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had run their governments on the back of publicity and advertisements. The Delhi government, he alleged, has a “publicity budget of Rs 526 crore” while Modi has a “publicity budget of thousands of crores”.

But underneath the glitz of the ads, there is no real work, he alleged. “Modi and Kejriwal think they can fool
every person in India all the time. Kejriwal had spoken about electricity… and today, there is no electricity in Delhi, and there is water problem…. Kejriwal sometimes talks about odd-even formula, sometimes about pollution, and sometimes about something else. But he does no work,” Rahul said.

Stating that the Congress does not make false promises, Rahul said, “ In Delhi, a Congress government which knows how to work, doesn’t make false promises, knows how to work for electricity and water….that party will rule here; that is your future.”
