Triupati: Taking a swipe at PM Modi for not visiting the families of CRPF soldiers killed in Pulwama attack, Congress chief termed the Prime Minister as ‘inhuman’.

Speaking at a rally in Tirpuati, the Congress chief once again reiterated the promise of special status for Andhra Pradesh if elected to power. He was addressing a rally in Tirupati.

Talking about the farm loan waivers, Gandhi said the grand old party is working for the welfare of farmers.

“We stand by our words. We waived agriculture loans immediately after coming to power in the states like Rajastan, Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh,” Rahul added.

He added that the Modi government’s promises of depositing Rs 15 lakh in every account, creating 2 crore jobs and bringing back the black money have remained unfulfilled and accused the government of corruption.
