RAHUL Gandhi Says Will Waive Farmers ‘Loan, If Congress Forms Govt In Chhattisgarh

AICC President Rahul Gandhi has the Goods and Service Tax (GST) and demonetization caused a huge loss to the economy. Addressing election rallies in Kanker and Rajnandgaon in poll-bound Chhattisgarh, he also accused the government of using the Maoist issue to divert attention from corruption and unemployment. “Modiji is talking about Naxalites in his Bastar rally. But he is silent on corruption and unemployment,” Gandhi said. Before the 2014 Lok Sabha election, he (Modi) had promised Rs 15 lakh to every citizen and employment to 2 crore youth. But after the election, he asked the people to pick up the broom and start cleaning “apparently rubbishing The Swachh Bharat Mission. Through demonetization, the Modi government had tried to snatch money from the poor. “As much as the damage Narendra Modi has done with (demonetization) and Gabbar Singh Tax (GST), no one else has caused such a huge loss to India,” Rahul Gandhi said.”All of you were forced to stand in long queues during demonetization. Have you seen Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi and Vijay Mallya in the queue? Did you see any rich people in the queue? Have you seen (Chief Minister) Raman Singh in the queue?” Gandhi asked. He also slammed PM Modi saying he is finishing policies related to protecting tribal land and not implementing the Land Acquisition Act properly. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and Modi promised jobs. But today nearly 60,000 posts of teachers and 13,000 of lecturers are vacant and 3,000 tribal schools had been shut down in the state, Gandhi said. The Congress President promised that if his party was voted to power in Chhattisgarh, the party will ensure that the government vacancies were filled up. He promised that Chhattisgarh farmers would get the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of INR 2,500 for paddy and bonus would be given to the farmers — something the BJP had not done over the last two years.
