Congress leader and party’s former president Rahul Gandhi today slammed the Narendra Modi government over farmers’ plight. The Congress leader who is on his Bharat Jodo Yatra, today said that the Modi government failed to fulfil its promises made to farmers and added that India cannot march ahead by leaving its peasants behind. He also said that the government gave loan waivers to billionaires instead of farmers.
“Farmers’ income did not double, it decreased. Farmers got inflation, not one and a half times MSP. Not the farmers, the loan waiver was given only to the billionaires. The Prime Minister made an all-out attack on the farmers, using black laws and export policy as weapons. India cannot march ahead by leaving its farmers behind,” said Rahul Gandhi.
किसानों की आय दुगनी नहीं, कम हुई।
किसानों को डेढ़ गुना MSP नहीं, महंगाई मिली।
किसानों को नहीं, कर्ज़माफी बस अरबपतियों को मिली।
प्रधानमंत्री ने काले कानून और निर्यात नीति को हथियार बना कर, किसानों पर चौतरफा आक्रमण किया। किसानों को पीछे छोड़ कर, भारत आगे नहीं बढ़ सकता।
