Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi today said the government cannot give satisfactory replies to the problems of farmers and labourers.

In his first speech in the Budget Session, he said the government was “ignoring” the farming community and favouring the industrialists and rich people, which was a “blunder” as the farmers will “harm” Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in future.

Later, when asked about the clarifications by Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh and Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, Gandhi said, “They gave replies but the truth is there cannot replies (on these issues).

Take the opinion poll:

“The basic point is that the government doesn’t understand the pain of the farmers and labourers.”

Rahul Gandhi‘s attack comes a day after Congress launched an all-out war on the government over the controversial land bill in a farmers’ rally yesterday which was addressed by party President Sonia Gandhi besides a host of other senior leaders, including him.
