On international human rights day on Thursday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi accused the Modi government of snatching away the fundamental rights of the poor and said doing so was a crime against humanity.
The rights of every class of people must be respected for the country’s future, Gandhi added.
“The Modi government is snatching the fundamental rights of the poor. It is a crime against humanity. For the better future of the country, we have to respect the rights of every class,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.
मोदी सरकार ग़रीबों के मौलिक अधिकार छीन रही है।
ये मानवता के विरुद्ध अपराध है।
