Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has "failed" to fulfil the promises made during the past five years.
"The promises Modi made to you, he has not fulfilled, but Anil Ambani gets Rs 30,000 crore in Rafale deal. The Prime Minister is speaking of nationalism and he gave the biggest defence deal to a person who has not made a single aircraft," he said.
The Congress president was addressing an election rally at the St. Stephen college grounds here in Kollam district.
Slamming the Sangh forces, the AICC chief alleged the country is now under attack from the BJP-RSS and there was an ideological fight going on between the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress.
"No matter how many times you (BJP/RSS) attack us, we will use love and non-violence to convince you are wrong," he said.
"In the last five years, our Prime Minister promised several things. Two crore job opportunities. Rs 15 lakh deposits in bank accounts and price support for farmers," he said.
Rahul asked how many of the citizens received the money that they were promised.
He assured the cashew farmers in the state that his party, if voted to power, will to take up their cause.
He also said that it was an "honour" for him to fight the Lok Sabha elections from Kerala.
He is on a two-day visit to Kerala. Besides Kollam, he would address rallies in three more districts.
Rahul, who is contesting from Wayanad district as a second constituency besides the Congress stronghold of Amethi, will be addressing meetings in his constituency on Wednesday.
