He lashed out on Rahul Gandhi led Congress and said Congress has mislead the farmers in Karnataka. He also asserted that the party made very big promises to the farmers but didn’t carry out even one percent of it.
“Congress promised lakhs of farmers of waving off their loans, but benefited only 800 farmers, ” PM Modi was quoted by ABP news as asserting.
He further stated that Congress deceived the farmers and took away all the votes. He also said that Congress’ loan waver is just a “lollypop” and “deceit”. PM also hailed his government for the work done by it in Purvanchal in his four years tenure.
