The National General Secretary of the Congress party and the UP in-charge, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, once again lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Centre. Speaking at a kisan mahapanchayat in Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh on Monday, Priyanka alleged that the government has money to spend on new aircraft for the Prime Minister, but they can’t clear the dues of sugarcane farmers.
Priyanka alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi bought two airplanes for his trips for Rs 16,000 crore, while sugarcane dues of each farmer would have been cleared with this amount. She said that the Prime Minister has money to roam around, but no money for the poor farmers.
