Earlier in the day, Rahul addressed another rally and accused the Centre of leaving protesting farmers on roads for a year amid the pandemic and alleged India now has a king who believes people should keep quiet when he makes a decision.
Addressing farmers at a rally, Rahul Gandhi said the Congress intends to provide a government that works in partnership with farmers, the youths and the poor.
Citing the example of the UPA government led by Manmohan Singh, he said farmers approached it for loan waivers and that was done within 10 days. A loan waiver worth Rs 70,000 crore was given to them.
“It was not a dole or a free gift. We did it because you work 24 hours for the country,” Gandhi said.
“The Congress never shut its doors on farmers… We want to work in partnership with farmers, the poor, labourers so that every section feels it is their government,” the former Congress chief said.
Referring to the wealth gap in the society, the Congress leader spoke about “two Indias” with such income disparity which is “not seen anywhere else”.
It must be noted that more than 81 lakh voters of Uttarakhand will decide the fate of 632 candidates when it goes to polls on February 14. Uttarakhand where single phase polling is slated for February 14 has a total of 81.43 lakh voters.
