Exactly ten days after he lashed out at the AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu blaming him for the deaths of stampede victims at the Godavari Pushkaralu in Rajahmundry, Congress' Rajya Sabha MP Chiranjeevi has once again come down heavily on Chandrababu and even the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Chiru ventured on an all-round attack in the presence of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who reached Ananthapur for his Rythu Bharosa Padayatra.In his speech, Chiru said that the country's agriculture sector in Modi's one year reign has been devastated completely and that this pathetic situation led to the suicides of hundreds of farmers.
Praising Sonia Gandhi, Chiru said that the Congress' Chief visited Ananthapur farmers in 2004 and the UPA government revived the agriculture sector in the region until Modi claimed power. Welcoming Rahul, Chiru said that 10 years after his mother, Rahul visited Ananthapur after he was moved by the plight of the farmers here. Chiru also said that Rahul and Congress will stand in support of the farmers.Targeting Chandrababu, Chiru said that the AP CM grossly failed to keep his poll promises to the farmers.
Chiru said that Babu claimed to have successfully waived off the farmers' loans but in reality, not many farmers' loans were waived off and that only Rs 110 of Rs 4,000 loan of a local farmer was waived. Chiru also stated that only Congress in the state is committed towards its fight for the special status to Andhra Pradesh.After Chiru, it was Rahul's turn to attack Babu and Modi. the Gandhi scion stated that Congress will wipe off farmers' tears and lashed out at Modi for his efforts in passing the unjust land bill in the Parliament. Rahul further questioned the TDP and YSRCP on their silence over the demand of special status to AP and the completion of Polavaram project, which will facilitate the farmers across Andhra Pradesh.
