It waived off the debts of the rich people and even gave away the coountry’s wealth to the privileged lot while leaving the rest of the country to suffer. They don’t want Dalits, backward classes and women to fulfill their dreams. Gandhi said that the BJP does not think highly of a woman and that women were not capable of standing together with men.
