New Delhi: Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Shri Subhash Chopra today addressed three major Aakrosh Rallies in the North East and East Delhi Parliamentary constituencies as part of the Delhi Congress’ third phase of the Halla Bol rally, holding the Modi Government at the Centre responsible for the scary unemployment scene in the country, financial slump and the crisis in the farm sector. Shri Chopra, addressing Aakrosh rallies at the Babarpur Bus Terminal in the Babarpur district, the Gokulpuri Chowk in the Karawal Nagar district and the Bhogal Central Road in the Patparganj district, said that the country’s present plight was on account of demonetization and the higher rate of GST, which has ruined the financial health of the country.
The Aakrosh rallies at Babarpur district, Karawal Nagar disstrict and Patparganj district were presided over by district presidents Shri Kailash Jain, Shri A.R.Joshi and Advocate Dinesh Kumar, respectively. Besides Shri Subhash Chopra, prominent others who participated in the Halla Bol rallies were former DPCC president Shri Arvinder Singh Lovely, Ex MP Shri Parvez Hashmi, ex-MLAs Mateen Ahmed, Hassan Ahmed, Vipin Sharma, Tarwinder Singh Marwah, Veer Singh Dhigan, Vinay Sharma, Baljore Singh, Former Mayor Farhad Suri, Leader of the Congress party in East MCD Rinku, Municipal Councillor Amarlatha Sangwan, Darshna Jatav, Shoeb Danish, chief organizer of Sewa Dal Sunil Kumar, chairman of the Minority Cell Ali Mehndi, ex-Councillor Ch.

Rohtas, Jaya Karan Chaudhary, B.D.Sharma, Priya Jayant, Deepak Bhardwaj, Vijay Tyagi and Vijay Chaudhary.
Addressing the rallies, Shri Subhash Chopra said that the Modi Government, instead of punishing those responsible for financial frauds in the country, were protecting those who virtually looted the banks and fled. He said that the Modi Government was encouraging the “fleece and fly” attitude of those who commit bank frauds to swindle public money. Shri Chopra, with the support of statistics, said that due to the wrong and corrupt policies of the Modi Government, the Non- Performing Assets (NPAs) of banks have soared to Rs 8,00,000 crore. He said that five years of BJP Government have seen nearly 25,000 cases of bank frauds involving Rs 1,74,255 crore. He said that instead of punishing the guilty, shielding the bank fraudsters has become the new normal of the BJP Government.
Shri Arvinder Singh Lovely said that the Modi Government’s stand that “Na Khaunga, Na Khane Dunga” has become a big joke and a hollow promise. He said that the truth is that during the BJP rule, BJP people have looted public money with both the hands. Shri Lovely reminded that when former Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi nationalized the banks, she opened the doors of the banks to the common people. But the Modi Government has opened the cash chest for the rich and the powerful to rob the bank funds and scoot. He said that this was the prime reason for the economic ruin in the country.
Ex MP Shri Parvez Hashmi and Ex MLA Ch. Mateen Ahmed said that the Modi Government’s dream of taking the country to a 5 trillion dollar economy was yet another ‘jumla’ to fool the people. They said that not only the poor people who are the worst affected by the economic slump, but also the middle class and the farmers. They said that following demonetization, Modi’s rich friends became richer while the common people were pushed down the dumps. They said that the Modi Government was trying to fill the stomachs of the common people with ‘jumlas’ instead of shoring up the economy.
The angry Congress workers, after holding the Aakrosh rallies, also took out processions in the main markets of Babarpur, Gokulpuri and Bhogal to protest against the faulty policies of the Modi Government. Carrying tri-colour flags, banners and placards, the Congress workers shouted slogans against the Modi Government. Local people, fed up with the wrong policies and economic slump, caused by the Modi Government, also joined the Congress protest in large numbers, including traders and small and medium businessmen.
