Mar 25, 2019 11:46 PM IST India India

Rahul Gandhi has shaken up the 2019 fight - with a huge promise to the nation's poor ahead of polling in April and May- He has called it the final assault on poverty? Countering the BJP's promise of 6000 rupees a year as basic income for farmers - Rahul has promised 6000 rupees a month to 5 crore poor families if the Congress is voted to power - the BJP has hit back at the Congress chief calling it an election lollipop - adding that making false promises ahead of elections is easy - but it is only Modi who has a track record of implementation. Rahul Gandhi has not specified any details of how he will fund this scheme - but such promises have elevated the party to power in the 2018 state elections - In this battle of SOPs - who has the edge - has Rahul Gandhi changed the game just 2 weeks before polling begins.
