New Delhi, March 31: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the BJP government was “Kisan Virodhi” and asked if Prime Minister rendra Modi can give debt relief to the richest, then why not the farmers.
Accusing the Prime Minister of being disrespectful to farmers, Rahul Gandhi, who met Tamil du farmers agitating in the capital for drought relief funds, said the plight of the drought-stricken farmers and their families does not affect the government. “I don’t understand why this discrimition. If PM has given debt relief to the richest people in the country, why is he not ready to give debt relief to those who build this country, the farmers,” he added. The Congress leader also said it was the responsibility of the Prime Minister to listen to the farmers and solve their problems. Pointing to the demands of the farmers — drought relief, waiving of loans and support to the farmers, Rahul Gandhi said a solution “needs to be worked out and at least a conversation needs to be started by these people”. He also vowed to raise the issue in Parliament in support of the farmers’ cause. (IANS)
