Raipur. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and former President Rahul Gandhi have made a big announcement in the public meeting held in Ambikapur, Chhattisgarh on Tuesday, the 31st day of Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra. He said that if the Indian coalition government comes to power at the Centre, farmers will be given a legal guarantee of minimum support price for their crops. During this, Congress leaders also strongly criticized the Modi government for oppressively stopping the farmers going to Delhi peacefully.
The yatra started from Udaipur in Surguja district on Tuesday morning. After this the journey reached Ambikapur. Everywhere on the way, the people of Chhattisgarh welcomed the Yatra with full enthusiasm and enthusiasm. During this, Rahul Gandhi talked to the farmers and in the afternoon addressed a huge public meeting in Ambikapur along with Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge.
In his address amidst the huge crowd in Ambikapur, Congress President Kharge raised the issue of forcibly stopping the farmers going to Delhi and said that the Modi government has laid down thorns for the farmers today. They have put up cement barricades, built a wall and put nails on top of it, what kind of democracy is this? Modi ji does not want the welfare of the farmers. Congress Party and Rahul Gandhi fought against three black agricultural laws. Congress has taken a historic pledge that according to the Swaminathan Committee report, it will guarantee fair prices to farmers by enacting an MSP law. This is the first guarantee of Congress before the Lok Sabha elections.
Taking aim at Prime Minister Modi, Congress President Kharge said that a person who has so much ego cannot have faith in democracy. Such a person works only for himself, he is called a dictator. He also called Modi the leader of liars. The Congress President said that the UPA government at the Center had waived off loans worth Rs 72 thousand crore of farmers. In Chhattisgarh, the Congress government had waived off farmers' loans worth Rs 9,000 crore in two hours, but the Modi government did nothing for the farmers. Prime Minister Modi does not look at the poor and farmers, he only looks at the rich. Modi ji made the Prime Minister Crop Insurance Scheme a profit scheme for private insurance companies. Insurance companies have earned Rs 40 thousand crore in ten years.
Raising the issue of cutting of trees in Hasdev forest, Kharge said that as soon as it came to power in Chhattisgarh, the BJP government gave permission to cut 15 thousand trees in Hasdev forest. Yesterday itself Rahul Gandhi also met the people of Hasdev Bachao Andolan and extended Congress Party's support to their movement. 30 Congress MLAs were suspended in the Assembly for demanding discussion on Hasdev case. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said in his address that India has the highest unemployment rate in 40 years. Small and medium businesses providing employment in the country have been ruined by Narendra Modi through GST and demonetization. Today inflation is increasing.
On the farmers being stopped oppressively from going to Delhi peacefully for their demands, Rahul Gandhi said that today the farmers are being stopped from going towards Delhi. Tear gas is being used on farmers. Farmers are being put in jail. Farmers are just saying that they should get the fruits of their hard work. The BJP government gave Bharat Ratna to Swaminathan ji, but the BJP government is not ready to implement the report given by Swaminathan ji for the farmers.
Caste census will be conducted when Congress government comes to power
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi announced that if the India Coalition government comes to power at the Centre, farmers will be given a legal guarantee of minimum support price on their crops. Whatever is written in the Swaminathan report will be fulfilled. Even beyond this, we are going to work for farmers and laborers in our manifesto. He said that nothing is being given to the backward people, Dalits, tribals and general category poor in the country. Raising the issue of caste census, Rahul Gandhi said that the economic and social X-ray of the country is caste census. This revolutionary work will be done when the Congress government comes to power at the Centre.
