New Delhi, Dec 30 : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday alleged that farmers do not trust Prime Minister Narendra Modi due to his long history of “asatyagraha” and shared an online survey asking people why the PM was not repealing the farm laws.
“’15 lakh in every bank account and 2 crore jobs every year’, ‘Give me 50 days time, else…’, ‘We will win war against corona in 21 days’, ‘Neither has anyone intruded into our territory nor took over any post’. Farmers don’t trust Modi ji due to his long history of ‘asatyagraha’,” he said in a tweet.
The former Congress president also shared the online survey, asking, “Mr Modi is refusing to repeal the anti-farmer laws because he is:” and gave the options “anti-farmer”, “run by crony capitalists”, “arrogant” or “all of the above”.
Gandhi is currently abroad visiting an ailing relative and also meeting his maternal grandmother.
Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala alleged in a tweet said that duping and deceiving farmers was the “new normal”.
“Dupe and deceive the Anndata is the ‘new normal’ in India as complicit BJP governments look sideways. Tragedy is that they still shamelessly bat for the ‘three black laws’ as a section of media applauds them. Let every Indian rise and question,” he said.
The Congress has been demanding a repeal of the three farm laws and have supported the farmers agitation against the legislations.
