New Delhi, Dec 19: After the BJP governments in Assam and Gujarat announced waiver of farm loans and rural electricity bills, respectively, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying now its time for “sleeping” PM to wake up.
Gandhi claimed both states took the decision under pressure from the Congress, which immediately after forming governments in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh waived farm loans delivering on its pre-poll promise.
“The Congress party has managed to wake the Chief Ministers of Assam and Gujarat from their deep slumber. Prime Minister is still asleep. We will wake him up, too,” the Congress Chief said in a tweet.
On Tuesday, the BJP-led government in Gujarat announced it will waive electricity bills in rural areas. While in Assam, it approved a Rs 600 crore farm loan waiver on Monday.
Gandhi’s fresh attack comes a day after he pledged that the Congress and other opposition parties would not let Modi sleep until all farm loans were waived.
