Distressed Farmers Showed PM Modi Their Strength In Recent Polls: Rahul

Rahul Promises To Accord Special Status To AP

Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that farmers, troubled by the agriculture distress, showed Prime Minister Narendra Modi their strength in the recent assembly elections in three Hindi heartland states, including Rajasthan, in which the BJP lost power to the Congress.

Addressing a farmers’ rally in Jaipur — the first after Congress formed the government in Rajasthan, he also promised to waive farm loans in every state if the Congress is voted to power in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress president, however, said waiving farm loans is a small step towards addressing the agriculture distress and “a new green revolution (harit kranti) is needed to address the problem.”
