Gujarat elections: Rahul Gandhi compares Narendra Modi to Gabbar Singh, asks PM to explain step-motherly treatment to farmers
Taking forward his 'question a day' campaign, Rahul Gandhi targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the problems afflicting the farm sector and farmers
New Delhi: Taking forward his 'question a day' campaign, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the problems afflicting the farm sector and farmers.
Asking his 9th question in the series, he asked, “Neither loan waiver, nor remunerative price for produce, neither received crop insurance benefit, nor were tubewells installed.”
The Congress leader also used the 'Gabbar' jibe to target the prime minister.
"Agriculture hit by Gabbar Singh, land snatched and the (Ánnadatta) farmer was rendered useless. PM sahib should explain why such step-motherly treatment with the farm labour," he also said on Twitter.
