New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked the Centre over its claim of doubling farmers’ income and alleged that their income has in fact “halved” under the ‘suit-boot sarkar’, while that of its crony friends has grown four times.

His remarks come at a time when farmers from Punjab and Haryana are protesting at the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders of the national capital against the Centre’s new agriculture reform laws

“They said farmers income will be doubled. What they did was increase incomes of ‘friends’ four times and those of farmers will be halved. This suit-boot government is of lies and loot,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.

The Congress leader also shared a video of the atrocities and use of force against the protesting farmers with a voice-over of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech saying his government was taking steps to resolve the problems faced by farmers and double their income.

The Congress has been attacking the government over the use of force against the protesting farmers, and has urged the dispensation to withdraw the new farm laws and redresses the grievances of the protestors.

  1. Pappu is a moron. A China funded, anti-national, small timer whose only value is nuisance value. The guy is not fit to run a paan shop but inherits a political party. Ask him to add 2+2 first before issuing statements on national issues.

  2. Look at this guy called Rahul Gandhi all he can do is just give a media byte by twiteeting or drop a single liner bashing PM Modi. The most ever incompetent person born on planet he hard work on ground or with people as results he and his mother completely finished congress party all over country these two not letting any competent and hardworking individual to rise in congress and lead and all time both mother and son bashing Modi thats all their jobs, yes Modi govt may have weakness on policy implementation and economic front so what are these two the option definitely not so what these doing is just waiting that one day people automatically want a changes so where they will go we will automatically grab power again and use for personal benefits shame these guys.
