"PM Modi turned deaf ear to farmers problems," says Rahul Gandhi
Congress President Rahul Gandhi said the strength of Karnataka is in the hands of the farmers, women, youth, small businessmen and all the people. He was addressing Janaashirvada rally in Hoskote, Kolar district.
Rahul Gandhi assured that the Congress government will focus on creating a network of food-processing plants across Karnataka for the benefit of farmers. He said, "The farmers of this country are suffering but PM Modi has turned a deaf ear to them."
"Our Government in Karnataka has delivered as it had promised. The success of our various welfare schemes speaks for itself. In the next 5 years, every person in Karnataka will own a house. Unlike PM Modi, we keep our promises," said Rahul Gandhi.
"Karnataka has not forgotten Demonetisation, Gabbar Singh Tax and Nirav Modi," he said.
He also said that the stage from which PM Modi speaks of anti-corruption also has people who've spent a time in jails for corruption. He accused PM Modi government for rising fuel prices. "PM Modi rode to power on the promise of reducing fuel prices. He should explain to the people why fuel prices are rising and why is he unable to curtail them," he added.
"The Congress stands united to defeat the BJP in Karnataka. We will win and form a people's Government," he said.
