Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi held a road show in Allahabad, the land of his great grandfather and country’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, on Thursday.
He sought support of the people for his party as he continued to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Rahul, who is currently undertaking “Deoria to Delhi yatra” across the state, had arrived at Allahabad on Wednesday night and stayed at Anand Bhavan, the ancestral home of Nehru.
He began his road show in the town by garlanding the statue of freedom fighter Chandrashkehar Azad and visited several localities during the roadside meetings.
“Modi government has failed to provide succor to the farmers... government’s policies have only benefited the rich industrialists,” the Congress vice-president said.
“Where are the achhe din?...where is the black money that Modiji had promised to bring back to the country?”, he said exhorting the people to support the Congress for ensuring development of Uttar Pradesh. He said that his party will exert pressure on the NDA government to waive off the loans of the farmers.
