Rahul asks 'pro-rich Modi' to waive farmer loans

Gandhi made the statement on his second day of "Janashirvada Yatra" in the poll-bound state of Karnataka and said that Modi was plunging into the past to attack the Congress party rather than looking at his own performance as a party leader.

"The BJP-led government has failed to create jobs, bring black money from overseas to the country and weakened the economy by demonetising currency (in November 2016) and hastily introducing Goods and Services Tax (GST) since July 1", the Congress leader added. "BJP failed to create jobs, bring back black money and brought down the economy, but all Modi talks about is Congress is this, Congress is that,"the Gandhi scion said". He advised Mr Modi to take a leaf from the life of Basavanna, the twelfth century social reformer, who propounded the concept, Kaayakave Kailasa (Work is Worship).

"Though the Modi government works for the rich, businessmen and industrialists, I urge the Prime Minister to waive loans of farmers who are the backbone of the country", Gandhi said in Koppal district, about 350km northwest of Bengaluru.
