Congress general secretary of Uttar Pradesh (east) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has alleged that during the past five years of the Narendra Modi regime, the income of the farmers has reduced by half while 5 crore jobs have been lost.

“The Modi government has done nothing for the people but was claiming big things during the election by high profile campaigning. But they are least concerned for the people particularly the farmers and the youths,’ she said.
The Congress leader said that the BJP government claimed that they will double the income of the farmers but instead their income has cut down to half due to anti-farmers policies of the government. ” Similarly, there are downfall in the jobs, and against their promise to give 2 crore jobs every year, instead one crore job was cut every year in this regime,” she said.
Addressing an election meeting in support of party candidate Ms Ratna Singh from Pratapgarh, Ms Vadra here on Thursday termed the present Modi government as the egoistic regime where the problems of the farmers and youths were totally ignored.

“They have announced Rs 6,000 per year to the farmers under Kisan Samman scheme even after promising Rs 15 lakhs during the 2014 elections. But this Kisan Samman was an insult to the farmers, as a family of five would get just Rs 2 per day ,which will not make any difference to the poor family, ” she said while comparing it with the Congress announced NYAY scheme which will give Rs 72,000 per year to the poor family.

She further hit out at PM Modi, saying that he has no time to meet the farmers or hearing their grievances. “People are always bigger than any government, but this NDA government had ignored all the problems’ .

During her speech, Ms Vadra concentrated her attack on the BJP by claiming that if Congress comes to power then farmers will get a separate budget while no one would be jailed for not paying their loans.

She also announced that a new Congress government will also return the food park in Amethi which will benefit the the places like Pratapgarh and other adjoining districts.

Priyanka will also address an election meeting in Jaunpur and later will hold roadshow in Sultanpur today.
