Rahul Gandhi targets PM Modi, vows to take land ordinance fight to every state

New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is snatching a farmer’s mother in the form of his land.

No place for labourers and farmers in PM Modi's Make in India, alleges Rahul Gandhi

“A farmer has two mothers-his own mother and his land. Modi is snatching farmer’s mother,” Rahul said while addressing the farmers at the Kisan Mazdoor Samman Rally at the Ramlila Ground here.

Gandhi further said the farmers of this nation are today scared and weak. And Modi ji wants them to be weak, he added while asserting that the BJP-led NDA Government is least concerned about the farmers.

Rahul also said that there’s no place for labourers and farmers in PM Modi’s Make in India. This is not Make in India, this is ‘Take in India’.

Continuing his tirade against Modi on the Land Acquisition Bill, Rahul Gandhi said that his party would take forward the land ordinance fight to every state.

“This fight has not ended. This fight is not limited to the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. The Congress Party will have to take this fight to every state. Modi ji has said in his ‘Mann ki Baat’ that now we will allow the land ordinance to lapse. But I know Modi ji. He does not say what he thinks. On one hand he said we won’t end the bill of the Congress Party and on the other hand he asked his chief ministers to do it at the state-level,” he added.

“This is not a fight for farms, not a fight for land but this is a battle for farmers’ hearts. This is a fight for the dignity and future of the farmers which is why Congress stands with you,” said Rahul.

Prime Minister Modi had earlier announced that his government will not re-promulgate the controversial ordinance on Land Acquisition and declared readiness to incorporate any suggestion in the bill on it which is pending in the Rajya Sabha to benefit the farmers.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi, former prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and several other party leaders were present in the rally.
