Delhi Modi and Telangana Modi ignore farmers: Rahul
HYDERABAD: AICC Vice President Rahul Gandhi today criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao of failing to keep their promises.
Addressing a public meeting at Vadyal in Adilabad district, Rahul dubbed Rao as “another Modi” for ignoring the plight of the farmers.
Taking a dig at Modi, Rahul asked whether our Prime Minister needs to wear a suit worth of 10 lakh rupees. He alleged that “Make in India” and “Bangaru Telangana” are merely slogans and not works of that stature. He blamed inefficiency of these governments to the unabated suicides by farmers across the nation.
He said the center and Telangana Governments have miserably failed to address the burning problems of farmers, who are backbone of the country.
“When there is a hailstorm or unseasonal rains, Modiji doesn’t visit the farmers. Here in Telangana, ‘mini-Modi’ (Rao) doesn’t see the farmers’ plight,” the Congress vice-president said.
Recalling that Modi had said that “Good days are ahead for the people” during election meetings, Rahul, quipped that Prime Minister Modi alone was enjoying good days after elections by wearing a suit and visiting foreign countries. Sarcastically saying that one Modi was ruling the country from Delhi, another Modi was ruling the Telangana State, he said.
“Did the BJP and TRS governments give a job to a single person,” he asked.
Stating that both “Modi’s” did not care to console the kin of distressed farmers who committed suicides due to unbearable crop loss and debts, Rahul said he would not have visited Telangana to console kin of farmers, had the government came to their rescue and helped them financially.
Though the nation would march forward if industrialists and farmers joined hands, Rahul alleged that the non-Congress governments were leaving farmers in lurch and pleasing industrial giants for their benefits. (NSS)
