Congress Will Safeguard Forests, Land, Water of Tribals: Rahul Gandhi
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said his party will safeguard the forests, land and water of the tribals if voted to power. The standard of living of the poor would also be improved through the ‘NYAY’ scheme, he said at an election rally in Chaibasa in support of Congress and ‘Mahagathbandhan’ candidate Gita Koda from the Singhbhum (ST) Lok Sabha constituency.
“We will protect the jal, jungle, zameen (water, forest and land) of tribals,” Gandhi said.
Asserting that the ‘NYAY’ scheme would act as a “surgical strike” in eradicating poverty from the country, Gandhi said, “A sum of Rs 72,000 per annum will be deposited in the bank accounts of the tribals, the poor, farmers, small traders.”
