NEW DELHI: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for ignoring a BJP worker’s question on the struggle of the middle class with the taxation policy during a recent video interaction with party workers from Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.
Gandhi pointed to a December 19 interaction that saw Nirmal Kumar Jain, a BJP worker, asking the Prime Minister why his government was busy collecting all manner of taxes but not providing any relief to the middle class by reducing the Income Tax rates or easing the procedures for securing loans.
Taking a jibe at Modi, Gandhi tweeted: “Vanakam Puducherry! That’s NoMo’s answer to the struggling middle class. Forget a press conference he can’t even string together a polling booth worker’s conference.
