He lashed out at the BJP-led NDA government at the centre accusing it of not being concerned about the pitiable condition of farmers in the country.

"If our government comes, we will waive off all loans of farmers," he said while taking a dig at the promise of Modi during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Rahul asked people if they got Rs 15 lakh in their bank accounts. When the people at the rally said no, he went on to say that the prime minister was in "fact wearing suits costing Rs 15 lakh".

Before this, the Congress leader attacked the Samajwadi Party (SP) government in the state, at Malipur in Ambedkarnagar and said that while there was no power in many areas of the state people were getting inflated electricity bills.

Promising the gathering of taking everyone along on the road to prosperity, Rahul Gandhi said if people wanted prosperity to come to the state they should vote for the Congress.

The Congress vice-president started the fifth day of his Kisan Mahayatra from the NTPC guest house in Tanda and went to Malipur where he was joined by senior party leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.

He is scheduled to cover Ambedkarnagar, Jaunpur on Saturday and will then reach Azamgarh - Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's parliamentary constituency.

Congress leaders said there would be a two-day break in the Yatra on Monday and Tuesday owing to the festival of Bakre-Eid.
