Rahul Gandhi. PTI file New Delhi, December 7 Taking forward his ‘question a day’ campaign, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the problems afflicting the farm sector and farmers. Asking his ninth question in the series, he asked, “Neither loan waiver, nor remunerative price for produce, neither received crop insurance benefit, nor were tubewells installed.” The Congress leader also used the Gabbar jibe to target the Prime Minister.

PM sahib should explain why such step-motherly treatment with the farm labour,” he said on Twitter. Gandhi had earlier termed the Goods and Services Tax as Gabbar Singh Tax to attack the government. Under the ongoing offensive, the Congress leader is using the tagline “22 saal ka hisab, Gujarat maange jawab” (22 years of account, Gujarat demands answers), in the run-up to the Gujarat elections starting December 9. The Congress Vice President has been using the microblogging site to pose daily questions to the Prime Minister over the performance of the BJP in Gujarat and its “unkept” promises over the past 22 years of its rule in the state.
