Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday came out all guns blazing at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said recent assembly polls showed the power of farmers to PM.
“Recent assembly polls showed the power of farmers to PM Modi. Congress will waive farm loans in every state if voted to power in 2019,” said Gandhi at a Jaipur rally.
“Only loan waiver is not enough, a new green revolution (harit kranti) needed to address farm distress,” Rahul Gandhi stressed.
Gandhi also attacked the PM over Rafale issue.
"PM could not even come to Lok Sabha. Defence Minister Nirmala ji spoke in the house for 2 1/2 hours but we exposed each and every lie. She had no answer to our direct questions," he said.
In the Rajasthan assembly polls last year, the Congress party bounced back to power in the state.
It is pertinent to mention here that in less than three months, Lok Sabha elections 2019 is scheduled to take place.
