Earlier in a day, the Congress Chief addressed a public gathering in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena and attacked the Narendra Modi government over Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi’s escape.
“Vijay Mallya fled with Rs 9000 Cr. Before fleeing he met FM in Parliament&said he’s going to London. FM didn’t alert police, ED or CBI. Farmers fight for their rights & you put them in jails. But you don’t take action against man who flees with Rs 9000 Crore”, Rahul Gandhi said.
“The present government is partial towards 15 industrialists. For the past four and a half years the government has waived off loans worth Rs 3 lakh crore for the industrialists, the same should be done for the farmers,” he added.
The Congress President also promised the farmers that their loans would be waived off when his party will assume power.
On his arrival in Gwalior, Gandhi was welcomed by state Congress chief Kamal Nath, election campaign committee head Jyotiraditya Scindia and other senior leaders.
Following this, he left for Morena by helicopter to address the gathering.
