Patiala, May 9, 2019 (Yes Punja News)

Former union minister and Congress candidate from Patiala parliamentary constituency Ms Preneet Kaur today ridiculed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s claims of being pro-farmers. She said, after four years, Modi had decided to give Rs 6000 to farmers and that too in three installments of Rs 2000 each.

“What the BJP is giving to you in one year, we will give you in one month”, she told a gathering of farmers and villagers in Shutrana constituency, while referring to Rs 72000 per year promised by the Congress under NYAY scheme.

Addressing campaign meetings in Shutrana assembly segment today, Ms Preneet Kaur also lashed out at the BJP’s alliance partner, Shiromani Akali Dal for being mute spectators to Modi’s insult of farmers. “Can anybody survive on Rs 6000 a year?” she asked, while adding, “is this the price Mr Modi is putting on the farmers?”

The former minister of state for external affairs said, the Congress party had always been the well-wisher of the farmers, the weak and the downtrodden. She pointed out, the Congress party had announced to provide Rs 72,000 to each family every year.

The Congress candidate took a dig at her rivals. “Last time you elected a person only to regret and realize soon after that you had simply wasted your vote and please do not do it again”, she cautioned voters, adding, “the other candidate was not even keen to contest”.

Asserting that the Congress was certain to form the government at the centre with the support of allies, she promised that the best days were ahead for all the sections of the society and not the select few. “Unlike Modi Ji, we believe in inclusive growth and development and not of a select few individuals only”, she remarked.
