Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that Indians do not get to see anger among small shopkeepers, youths, farmers and labourers against Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the national level and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Bihar, as they control the media.
Gandhi was addressing a rally at Darbhanga in Bihar, his second rally of the day in the state. He also said that an effigy of the prime minister was burned in Punjab on the occasion of Dusshera.
“You didnt get to see it perhaps because Nitishji and Modiji control the media,” he alleged.

He said the people of Bihar gave 15 years to Nitish Kumar as chief minister and six years to Modi as Prime Minister yet “Bihar is the poorest state”.
He said the ongoing elections in Bihar was about the states future and if the Congress comes to power with its Grand Alliance partners it will be the government of all castes and religions.
His rally at Darbhanga comes right after the one at West Champaran.
