Addressing a large gathering alongside former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Gandhi questioned the government’s priorities, juxtaposing the Prime Minister’s decision to waive off Rs 16 lakh crore debt for select billionaires with the continued plight of farmers burdened by debt.

He pledged that an INDIA government, led by the Congress, would prioritize the welfare of farmers by ensuring the waiver of their debts, mirroring the treatment afforded to wealthy industrialists.

Gandhi emphasized the pivotal role of the ongoing elections, framing it as a battle between defenders of the constitution and those seeking its erosion, embodied by the BJP and RSS. He underscored the Congress/INDIA bloc’s commitment to safeguarding democratic institutions and fostering social justice.
