Rahul promises loan waiver for Guj farmers if Cong wins polls

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on thursday tried to woo farmers in Gujarat amid a high- stakes poll battle, promising that their loans would be waived if his party forms government in the state.

Calling Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani a \"rubber stamp\", he alleged that BJP president Amit Shah was remote- controlling the government in the western state.

\"(Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji waived loans worth Rs 1.25 lakh crore of his five-ten industrialists friends, but Modiji and (Finance Minister Arun) Jaitleyji say that it is not their policy to waive loans of farmers when they ask for it,\" Gandhi claimed.

He was campaigning here in the Patidar-dominated Amreli district, on the second day of his two-day tour of Gujarat.

\"Modiji talked for 22 years about farmers, but you have not got anything, your land has been taken away, your water is diverted to industrialists, and you do not get crop insurance,\" he told a poll meeting.

\"We make this promise to you that we will frame a policy within 10 days of forming government in Gujarat to waive your loans,\" he said.
