Modi Scorecard

New Delhi: Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi has taken advantage of the exam results season in a unique way. The young Congress president who is trying his best to revive more than century-old party on Thursday released the "Agriculture Scorecard" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi giving him Grade F.

Tagging the detailed scorecard of PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi in a Twitter post listed the former’s contribution to farm loan waiver, crop insurance scheme and minimum support price for Karnataka farmers.
Justifying Grade F he has given to PM Modi, Rahul wrote, the union government has zero contribution to Congress government in Karnataka farm loan waiver amounting to 8,500 crore rupees.

Rahul also said there is no Minimum Support Price (MSP) for Karnataka farmers defining the Prime Minister’s crop insurance scheme as “Farmers suffer and private insurance companies make huge profits”.

Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter post comes a day after PM Modi accused the Congress of ignoring Karnataka’s agriculture sector. “They have been insensitive towards the aspirations of the farmers. The farmers of Karnataka deserve better,” he had tweeted on Wednesday.

“Farmers in Karnataka needs a government which is sensitive to their issues”, the Prime Minister said.
