Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hit out at the Modi government over farmer and unemployment issues, accusing it of making "hollow" and "false" promises".
Modi govt making 'hollow' & 'false' promises: Rahul
"We don't make big promises; rather we will perform and show. When Modiji's government came, farmers were promised full help, but across the country farmers are committing suicide," Gandhi said.
He said in Karnataka and Punjab, Congress governments had stood by the farmers.
The Congress leader was speaking at the state Congress committee's 'Samanatha Samavesha' here to felicitate him for his role in providing special status to the backward Hyderabad-Karnataka region during the UPA rule, by an amendment of Article 371(J) of the Constitution.
Taking a dig at the Modi government for low employment rate, Gandhi said the government in Karnataka is doing a far better job in this regard.
"They speak about Make in India, not even one factory has opened. Who has got employment here because of make in India? Now tell me how many jobs has Siddaramaiah given in Karnataka?--30,000..."
"False promises on one side, on other hand Congress CM working from heart for the people and doesn't make hollow promises. This is the difference between us and them," he said. Accusing the Modi government of indulging in false and hollow promises, he said people know that Congress will do, what it says.
