Rahul gives Modi govt ‘0 out of 10’; slams it over food park
Taking his fight for farmers to his Lok Sabha constituency, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday said he would give “zero out of 10” rating to the Narendra Modi government on its handling of agriculture and rural issues. Striking an aggressive note on the first day of his three-day visit to Amethi, he also accused the Modi government of engaging in “politics of revenge” by cancelling a mega food park in Amethi and vowed to fight to get it back. He said scrapping of the project had “seriously hit” farmers and that he had come here to expose the “bluff” of the Centre which has maintained that the responsibility for its cancellation lay with the promoter company and the previous UPA government. Hitting out at Modi, Gandhi said he was visiting foreign countries but not the homes of farmers in the country.
