‘Jitni aabadi, utna haq’: Rahul vows survey for wealth redistribution

HYDERABAD: Former

Congress

president

Rahul Gandhi

Saturday said Congress, if voted into office in the Lok Sabha elections, would conduct a

financial and institutional survey

to ascertain who is in possession of the wealth of the country, and would then undertake an exercise to redistribute the same.
He also promised representation of each community in every sector.

Releasing the party’s poll manifesto at a public meeting in Tukkuguda, he stressed on “jitni aabadi, utna haq” principle. “First, we will conduct a caste census…to know the exact population and status of backward castes, SCs, STs, minorities and other castes. After that, the financial and institutional

survey

will begin. Subsequently, we will take up the historic assignment to distribute the wealth of India, jobs and other welfare schemes to these sections based on their population,” he said.
Rahul claimed that backward castes, dalits, minorities and adivasis comprised nearly 90% of India’s population, but had miniscule share in govt jobs, big companies and other sectors. “The truth is 90% of India’s population does not have a share in taking govt decisions. Of the total 90 IAS officers who run the country’s administration, only three are BCs, one adivasi and three dalits. If the country spends Rs 100, BC officers involved in taking the decision are only there for spending Rs 6,” he said.

Tukkuguda is the same venue where Sonia Gandhi had launched the party’s ‘six guarantees’ before Telangana assembly elections last year, which Congress won defeating BRS.
Rahul said the saffron party was spreading hatred and wanted to divide the country to come to power for a third term. “But the people of Telangana have defeated their ideology,” he said.
