Nation in grip of corporates, says Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader and Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi on Thursday alleged that “one or two corporates” are controlling the country and added that this is not good for democracy. Gandhi, speaking at a public function in Wayanad, said the farmers of the country have still not got a clear picture on the farm laws and the agitation could flare up again.

The former Congress chief said that the Congress and UDF would sweep the upcoming Assembly polls in Kerala and added that several new faces will be contesting the election. Gandhi who is in the state for the past couple of days, had interacted with girl students on Wednesday and had even asked a schoolgirl to translate his speech. He had called upon the girls students to be independent and equal to boys and asked them to be active in all walks of life.

Gandhi was also involved in a series of discussions with senior state Congress leaders and its ally the Indian Union Muslim League regarding the sharing of seats. He is keen that a large number of women and youth contest the next election on Congress tickets.
