Adilabad (Telangana): Rahul Gandhi on Friday took Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao head on accusing them of completely forgetting their pre-poll promises to the farmers.
Taking a potshot at the Prime Minister, the Congress vice president said that neither Modi nor the Telangana chief Minister did anything when the farmers were hit by thundershowers and hailstorm. He even went on to describe Telangana chief minister Chandrasekhar Rao as ‘mini Modi’.
Rahul said Modi and the leaders now at the helm of affairs in Telangana had promised waiver of rural loans and remunerative prices for their produce but nothing has been done to meet this promise.
Rahul also used the platform to attack the Modi led Central Government’s for pushing the controversial land acquisition Bill. He pointed out that the previous UPA regime had brought in a new package of land reforms so that the farmers and their children could benefit from the rising price of land.
The Congress leader was on a 15 km Padyatra (foot march) in Adilabad district of Telangana today.
