SP-Congress government will represent youth, farmers: Rahul

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the Samajwadi Party (SP)-Congress alliance government in Uttar Pradesh post-elections to the state assembly will be a government “of youth, of women, of farmers”.

Addressing a rally here, Gandhi said: “The Congress-SP government will be a government of youth, government of women and of farmers.”

He said this government will “chase people to help them” establish their business and vocation.

He said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government was giving Rs 10,000 crore to those making liquor but nothing to the hard-working farmers.

Gandhi also raised the issue of demonetisation, saying it has badly affected livelihoods.
