New Delhi: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday conducted a public rally in Madhya Pradesh, where elections will take place by the year-end.
Speaking at Mandsaur, which is mourning the six farmers who died in police firing last year, slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, for failing the nation's farmers.
To the farmers, who have been demanding better price for their crops and a loan waiver, Rahul Gandhi said not only had PM Modi let down the farmers, it had also failed to help industry.
Its Make in India initiative, he said, has been a resounding failure, especially when Indian markets have been taken over by Chinese goods.
"Make in India is a failure. Everything is made in China, China, China... And our PM is swinging on a swing with the Chinese leader in Gujarat... The Chinese army got into Doklam, still Narendra Modi doesn't utter a word," he said.
If the Congress came to power in the state, it would "change the lives" of the farmers, he said. Addressing the key demands of the farmers, he promised crop loan waiver within 10 days of taking over and justice for the farmers killed in police firing.
