Govt wants corporates to control every business: Rahul Gandhi

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi alleged on Wednesday that the Union government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants the entire operations of the sea to be controlled by one or two businessmen, instead of them being controlled by the fishermen community.

During his interaction with the farmers in Muthailpet here, Rahul Gandhi said that the present government is attacking small and medium businessmen because it only wants one or two corporate entities to control every business in this country.

He added that his party’s views are completely different from the present ruling dispensation as the Congress has always believed in strengthening the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) sector.

“So whether it was demonetisation, hurried implementation of GST or even the Corona pandemic, they have been used to weaken the SME sector and promote one or two big entities,” he said.
