So MGNREGA provided a floor below which nobody would be asked to work. This was frankly a revolutionary change in India. But the other idea was that it should be a dynamic, evolving idea. : Shri @RahulGandhi

Another focus was that we should use our people to build infrastructure; to build India with dignity. It was designed to protect our people. And in no way was it a charity. : Shri @RahulGandhi

I was shocked when I heard PM Modi speak against MGNREGA, calling it a living monument of the failures of the UPA. He called it a drain on the exchequer. : Shri @RahulGandhi

The PM actually hadn't understood that MGNREGA was a last resort and provided huge protection for millions of Indians. : Shri @RahulGandhi

I watched how thousands of people were left without jobs during Covid, and MGNREGA saved them. PM didn't comment about MGNREGA then and after that. It was obvious what he called a monument of failures had protected India during Covid : Shri @RahulGandhi

Another important aspect of MGNREGA is that it's a partnership between the govt, the people & the panchayats. : Shri @RahulGandhi

MGNREGA has to evolve with time. Today with demonetisation & a flawed GST, our economy is crippled. MGNREGA becomes even more important in providing protection to our people. : Shri @RahulGandhi

Govt should seriously listen to the demand of increasing the days of MGNREGA to 200 days, and seriously consider raising the wages of labourers. You are suggesting Rs 400 a day, and expansion of the scheme to include paddy cultivation. : Shri @RahulGandhi

The idea of MGNREGA has to evolve. It has to be linked to the current economic situation. We also have to think how to apply its principles to the urban economy. It must be based on dignity of the labourer. : Shri @RahulGandhi

It must be noted MGNREGA is only one part of the solution. It's like a shock absorber that can protect you from a shock. But if the engine of the car doesn't work then the shock absorber is useless. : Shri @RahulGandhi

The engine is the broader economy, the creator of jobs. It requires harmony in society. These are some of the challenges India is facing today. None of these would be solved through hatred and anger. We have to work unitedly to solve these problems. : Shri @RahulGandhi
