After Rafale, PM Modi now looting farmers: Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Nov 5: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused the Narendra Modi government of “looting farmers” in the name of crop insurance scheme, the “Pradhanmantri Bima Fasal Yojana”.

“After looting the Air Force in Rafale, now the farmers are being looted in the name of crop insurance. The motive is one: fill thousands of crores of rupees in the accounts of suit-boot friends,” the Congress President tweeted in Hindi.

Taking cognisance of an IANS story in which journalist and farm activist P. Sainath said that the crop insurance scheme was a “bigger scam than even the Rafale scam”, Gandhi on Twitter accused Modi of promoting crony capitalism.

Gandhi has been targeting the Prime Minister and his government for corruption in the Rafale deal.

“The government’s policies are anti-farmer. The Pradhanmantri Bima Fasal Yojana is a bigger racket than even the Rafale scam,” Sainath said on Friday in Ahmedabad.
