The resumption of Iftar comes at a time when the Congress is seen to be pursuing a policy of soft Hindutva as evidenced in Rahul Gandhi's several recent temple visits.
Rahul also alleged that the Modi government has ignored the interests of farmers but has helped a small group of industrialists by waiving loans amounting to almost Rs 2.5 lakh crore.
"₹2.5 lakh crore were given to 15 industrialists".
He claimed that India was becoming a slave to select Bharatiya Janata Party leaders and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
Mr. Gandhi was speaking at the Congress' first ever Other Backward Classes (OBC) convention at Delhi's Talkatora indoor stadium where, he launched an all out attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government. Most them are not allowed to speak and the BJP does not listen to the few of us who do speak up. "If you want to understand India, then you should understand one thing - those who work, those who give their blood and sweat and those who have skills, India doesn't reward them", said Gandhi.
"Why are the banks not open to our farmers and small businesses?" The Congress Prez then drew parallels between India and the United States and cited the example of fast food firms such as Coca-Cola and McDonald's. "His experience and skills paid dividends, made wealth and launched the company".
He further said that entire opposition will unite in six months to make the BJP realise that India will be run by its people and not just three people - Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and Mohan Bhagwat, reported the daily.
He claimed that fast food chain McDonald's was started by a man who ran a dhaba, and that auto manufacturing companies like Ford, Mercedes and Honda were started by mechanics. "Show me one dhaba owner in India who can do this", he said.
"The RSS people had killed (Mahatma) Gandhi", the Congress president had allegedly said in the rally.
