Amethi: A 'vocal' Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi made a scathing attack on the Narendra Modi government at the Centre by accusing it of trying to usurp the farmers' land through controversial Land Acquisition Bill.
Rahul Gandhi, who is on a two-day visit to Amethi, said ''the Narendra Modi government is working only for capitalists.”
Continuing his attack on the BJP regime, the Gandhi scion said, “The NDA government wants to grab land of the farmers through the Land Acquisition Bill.”
The Congress vice president, however, also stressed on “the need to strengthen Congress to protect the interests of the country, whose future lies in the hands of the party.”
Rahul made these remarks after interacting with farmers and local residents in his parliamentary constituency Amethi shortly after arriving here.
The Gandhi scion will stay in Amethi till August 19, as per reports. His visit comes after the conclusion of the Monsoon Session of Parliament.
