    Rahul Gandhi addresses press conference

    • We are not against privatization but our privatization plan had a logic. We didn't privatize strategic industries & we consider Railways as strategic industry because it transports lakhs & crores of people and also employs lots of people: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi
    • We privatized chronically loss-making industries. We privatized the companies that had minimal market share. We didn't privatize government enterprises with the potential of checking private sector monopoly in a particular sector: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi
    • What this country has built over the last 70 years, is being given away. There is an excuse they have come up with that "we are leasing these"...The government clearly mishandled the economy & doesn't know what to do: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi
    • They (Government) have basically destroyed what the UPA built & now as a last resort, they are selling everything that we had helped create. To me, this is a huge tragedy: Rahul Gandhi
