New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused the Modi government of “looting farmers” in the name of its much touted crop insurance scheme, the “Pradhanmantri Bima Fasal Yojana”. Taking cognisance of an IANS story in which journalist and farm activist P. Sainath asserted that the crop insurance scheme was a “bigger scam than even the Rafale scam”, Gandhi on Twitter accused Modi of promoting crony capitalism. “After looting the Air Force in Rafale, now the farmers are being looted in the name of crop insurance. The motive is one: fill thousands of crores of rupees in the accounts of suit-boot friends,” he said in Hindi. (IANS)
