New Delhi (India), Feb 7 (ANI): Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Thursday questioned the loan waiver model of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, which has been adopted in states like Punjab, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh.
She alleged that “Congress president Rahul Gandhi is pedaling a fake loan waiver scheme to con poor farmers for their votes in run up to the Lok Sabha elections 2019.”
“Congress president Rahul is indulging in tactics which are inimical to the interests of farmers. Because of Cong’s gimmickry, the number of suicides has gone up considerably and banks have stopped lending to farmers,” Harsimrat said in a statement.
Badal said that the dream project of Rahul Gandhi to create jobs in his constituency had to be shelved because he was not interested.
“Amethi Mega Food Park was the dream project of Rahul Gandhi which was sanctioned in 2010. It was to be ready in 2012, but even in 2014 not a brick could be laid,” she said.
“But when elections were nearing, Rahul Gandhi laid a foundation stone and claimed that he would create jobs. Later the project had to be closed,” said Badal. (ANI)
