Rahul met the protesting landless poor who are marching towards Delhi and attacked the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for being pro-industrialists. "The present government is partial towards 15 industrialists. For the past four and a half years the government has waived off loans worth Rs 3 lakh crore for the industrialists, the same should be done for the farmers," he said while addressing a gathering at a stadium in Morena district.
He also promised the farmers that their loans would be waived off once the Congress assumes power.
