Speaking at Mandsaur Rahul Gandhi ripped into Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, practically counting off the ways in which it has failed the nation’s farmers.
Mandsaur was the epicentre of last year’s protracted protest by farmers which the state police tried to quell midway by opening fire on a group of protesters. Six farmers had died in the firing – their friends and families say justice still eludes them. To mark the first anniversary of the tragedy, angry farmers have planned a 10-day protest in the area.
Farmers are demanding fair prices for their crops and also loan waivers. Apart from this, Rahul Gandhi said that “If the Congress came to power in the state, it would “change the lives” of the farmers”. He also promised crop loan waiver within 10 days of taking over and justice for the farmers killed in police firing.
“Make in India is a failure. Everything is made in China, China, China… And our PM is swinging on a swing with the Chinese leader in Gujarat… The Chinese army got into Doklam, still Narendra Modi doesn’t utter a word,” he said.
