Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi attacks PM Modi on farmers' woes
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday posed another question to Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the plight of farmers.
In his 'question a day' campaign, Rahul wrote on Twitter in Hindi, asking neither loan waiver, nor remunerative price for produce, neither received crop insurance benefit, nor were tubewells installed.
The Congress vice-president also used the ‘Gabbar’ taunt to target the prime minister.
“Agriculture hit by Gabbar Singh, land snatched and the (annadatta) farmer was rendered useless. PM sahib should explain why such step-motherly treatment with the farm labour,” he also said on Twitter.
Gandhi had earlier termed the Goods and Services Tax as Gabbar Singh Tax to attack the government.

Under the ongoing offensive, the Congress leader is using the tagline 22 saal ka hisab, Gujarat maange jawab (22years of account, Gujarat demands answers), in the run-up to Gujarat elections starting December 9.
The Congress vice president has been using the microblogging site to pose daily questions to the prime minister over the performance of the BJP in Gujarat and its “unkept” promises over the past 22 years of its rule in the state.
