Jaipur, Feb 14: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday targetted Prime Minister Narendra for making an empty promise of loan waiver to farmers.
“We waived off farm loans in Rajasthan, MP, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, and Punjab, whereas Mr. Modi waived off loans worth Rs 3,50,000 Crore of people like Anil Ambani, Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi”, Gandhi said addressing at the national convention of Congress Sevadal in Ajmer.
“BJP-RSS believe that India is a product that should benefit a handful of their richest friends”.
Citing PM Modi’s remark that India was a sleeping giant before 2014, the AICC chief stated the Prime Minister not only insulted the Congress party, he insulted the people of the country.
“PM Modi says India was a sleeping giant before 2014. He means that Pt. Nehru, Dr. Ambedkar, our farmers, small businesses did not do anything before him. He is not insulting Congress by saying this, but insulting the people of this country”.
“We believe in justice for all. It does not make a difference to BJP if farmers commit suicide or people have to stand in queues during Demonetisation. Their sole intention is to benefit India’s richest”.
Gandhi further said that “We need to start a new beginning. The Congress Sevadal need to be strengthened. We should understand that we cannot fight BJP’s hate with hate. I hugged PM Modi to remove that hatred”.
