Congress too made mistakes, will need to change its politics: Rahul Gandhi

“I can give you in writing, if you want, that Narendra Modi is not going to be the PM again,” the Congress leader said.

Rahul-GandhiLUCKNOW: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday said his party too has made mistakes and will have to change its politics in future.

The remark came at an event in Lucknow where he accused the Narendra of being a monarch and not a prime minister, calling him a front for “two three financiers.

Answering a question from a member of the audience at the event on the Constitution, the former Congress president said he was 100 per cent prepared to take on Narendra Modi in a debate, but he knew that the prime minister will not agree.

“The Congress party will also have to change its politics in the coming times. This will have to be done. I also want to say that the Congress party has also made mistakes and I am saying this while being from the Congress party,” he said in his speech.

However, he did not elaborate on what “change” he felt the Congress needed.

The Samvidhan Sammelan was organised by the Samruddha Bharat Foundation.

Gandhi claimed that the ruling BJP will be restricted to less than 180 seats in the Lok Sabha elections.

“I can give you in writing, if you want, that Narendra Modi is not going to be the PM again,” he said, repeating the prediction he made at joint rallies in Uttar Pradesh earlier in the day with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav.

“Some people in politics only think of how to get power. I was born into it and have no interest in it. But for me it’s just a tool to help public,” he said.

He said 90 per cent of the population in India comprises of people from the SC/ST, OBC, Dalits, tribals, minorities and the poor from the general community who are not given equal participation.

He then repeated his call for a caste-based census.

“If the nation is to be strengthened, it cannot be done without including the 90 per cent. If you say that the 90 per cent will not come into bureaucracy, sports, media, judiciary and even beauty pageants, then what superpower will you make? Do you want to make 10 per cent of the population a superpower,” he said.

He accused the prime minister of attacking the Constitution.
