PM Narendra Modi is playing with people's trust: Rahul Gandhi in Allahabad

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi reached Allahabad on Thursday as part of his month-long Kisaan Yatra in Uttar Pradesh to kick-start the party’s campaign for the Assembly elections.

Rahul continued to direct his barbs at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav while in Allahabad.

“Our PM is playing with the trust of the people,” he said during his rally.

Even in Mirzapur, Gandhi on Wednesday accused Modi of being busy “globe trotting” while the farmers of the country were facing problems.

"Modi has waived off loans of Rs 1.10 lakh crore of industrialists but we will be waiving off the loans of poor farmers," he had said.

He did not spare Akhilesh and remarked on the ongoing fued in the Yadav clan."Tyre of the cycle is already punctured, yesterday Akhilesh Yadav ji threw the wheel out,” he said.

Referring to the Samajwadi Party’s symbol of a cycle, he added “Chunav say kuch maheene pehle Akhilesh cycle theek karna chahtay hain, voh toh hogi nai (Just months before the elections, Yadav wants to repair the cycle.”

Akhilesh should have removed the defects from the cycle four-and-a-half years back. Now with elections hardly six months away, what does all this mean?" he asked the farmers at his Mirzapur rally.

Senior Congress leader Javed Urfi told The Times of India that the party has done a lot of groundwork during the yatra.
