India Looks A Lot Like Sri Lanka: Rahul Gandhi Takes A Jibe At Union Govt

New Delhi: With Congress losing a series of elections under his leadership, not many consider Rahul Gandhi to be a serious contender to be Narendra Modi’s successor.

But he rarely missed the chance to hit out at the ruling BJP on key issues.

In a scathing attack against the Narendra Modi government, Rahul said on Wednesday India’s petrol price, unemployment and communal violence graph ‘looks a lot like Sri Lanka’, and that the Centre should not try to distract people.

“Distracting people won’t change the facts. India looks a lot like Sri Lanka,” Rahul tweeted along with a graph comparing petrol price, unemployment and communal violence of the two countries.


The graph shows similar images of India and Sri Lanka citing sources like Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), Lok Sabha unstarred question, CMIE, Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell and Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

Prices of edible oil and essential items have been rising steadily. WPI inflation was at a high of 15.08% in April as against 14.55% in March.
