Rahul Gandhi takes a bullock cart ride during Saurashtra trip, hits out at Modi 25.9.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Unemployment, right price for farm produce, education, health, GST and demonitisation. These were the dominant themes of which Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi hit out at Modi government on the first day of his three-day Navsarjan Gujarat yatra across politically sensitive Saurashtra region on Monday.

The Congress scion began his whirlwind yatra after offering prayers at renowned Dwarkadheesh temple. He came to the temple 27 years after his father had come to pay visit to Lord Krishna. While the day for Congress vice president began on a milder note due to Navratri, that sees low number of tourists to this temple town, he moved on with his tour atop hi-tech convertible bus. Rahuls first stop was Bhatiya village, with several pit stops on highway entry points to villages as Nandana, where he was welcomed ...
