Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday launched yet another blistering attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue of agrarian crisis, saying that the prime minister was making two 'Hindustans'- one for Anil Ambani and other for farmers.
Taking to Twitter, citing a media report which claimed that for 750 kg of onion, a farmer was given Rs 1040 in Maharashtra, the Congress scion wrote: "Modiji is making two Hindustans. One is the Hindustan for Anil Ambani -- who without doing anything, without making an airplane, will get the Rafale contract worth Rs 30,000 crore from Modiji."
"The second is the Hindustan for farmers -- whose 750 kg of onion grown after four months of toil will get only Rs 1040 from Modiji", Rahul Gandhi wrote in his tweet.
The government has rejected the claims and pointed out the number of steps it has taken for the welfare of farmers.
The Congress party and its chief have also launched an offensive on Modi and his government, alleging corruption and favouritism in the fighter jet deal for purchase of 36 Rafale aircraft from France's Dassault Aviation, a charge the government has strongly denied.
