BJP hits back at Rahul's 'F grade' jibe, says K'taka govt has blood of innocent farmers on its hand


Hitting back at Congress President Rahul Gandhi 'F grade' jibe, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday said that the Karnataka government has the blood of innocent farmers on its hand.

In a retort to Congress, BJP has released a report card of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and said the Karnataka government had the blood of innocent farmers on its hand. "What grade would you (Rahul Gandhi) give him for overseeing these macabre suicides?," BJP also asked.

BJP hits back at Rahuls F grade jibe, says Ktaka govt has blood of innocent farmers on its hand

Taking to Twitter, BJP said,''Mr Rahul Gandhi, Here is your Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's report card. Your government in Karnataka has the blood of innocent farmers on its hand. What grade would you give him for overseeing these macabre suicides? #NaavuModiJothe''

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi Thursday gave Prime Minister Narendra Modi an 'F' for the Centre's contribution to the agricultural sector in Karnataka. Ahead of the Assembly elections in the state, Gandhi, in what he called "Mr Modi's Report Card", said the Prime Minister has not contributed to the Congress-led state government's Rs 8,500 crore farm loan waiver or towards the minimum support price scheme for farmers. He added that the PM's crop insurance scheme did not help to end the farmers' suffering while assisting private insurance companies to rake in huge profits.

Gandhi's remarks on Thursday morning comes a day after PM Modi accused the Congress of completely ignoring Karnataka's agriculture sector.
