Madhu Yashki Goud Accuses Modi Government of Collecting 'Modi Tax'

Madhu Yashki Goud, former MP and chairman of the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Campaign Committee, has leveled serious allegations against the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre. Goud accused the government of collecting a 'Modi Tax' from the people and giving it to select industrialists like Gautam Adani and Mukesh Ambani.

Why this matters: The allegations of corruption and favoritism towards select industrialists have significant implications for India's democracy and economy, as it raises concerns about the government's accountability and transparency. If true, it could lead to a loss of trust in the government and have far-reaching consequences for the country's political and economic landscape.

Speaking at a 'Meet the Press' programme organized by the Telangana State Union of Working Journalists (TUWJ) on Friday, Goud alleged that the BJP government is collecting money from corporates in the name of electoral bonds and indulging in large-scale corruption. He claimed that the government is works, chosen industrialists, promoting their interests at the expense of the poor.

"Everyone knows how the properties of industrialists Adani and Ambani have increased during the last ten years. Modi government is not just for industrialists, but it is for a few chosen industrialists for whom it is working for," Goud stated. He further accused Prime Minister Modi of promoting religious hatred and seeking votes based on divisive politics to win elections.

Goud criticized Modi for asking people to give the BJP 400 seats in the Lok Sabha elections, which he believes is a conspiracy to abolish reservations in the country. He praised AICC senior leader Rahul Gandhi for continuing his struggle to ensure social justice for the poor, who constitute more than 90% of the country's population.

The allegations made by Madhu Yashki Goud come at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been promoting India as the world's largest and oldest democracy. However, critics have highlighted human rights abuses, restrictions on free speech, and discrimination against minority groups under the Modi regime. The growing concentration ofcorporate, giants, tightening, grip, mediaownership in the hands of a few large corporate conglomerates, such as Adani Enterprises and Reliance Industries Ltd, has also raised concerns about the lack of diversity in the Indian media market and the government's control over the media narrative.

As the 2024 Lok Sabha elections approach, the allegations of corruption and favoritism towards select industrialists are likely to become a major point of contention between the ruling BJP and opposition parties like the Congress. "The Congress party will definitely form the government at the Centre this time,"Goud asserted,expressing confidence in his party's prospects in the upcoming elections.
