Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi addressed supporters during his road show on the last day of his month-long Kisan Yatra from Deoria in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh to Delhi on Thursday.
Rahul Gandhi on Thursday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the IDS scheme alleging that he had failed to act against blackmoney despite his talk of "56-inch chest" to fight corruption, and instead brought out a scheme for turning into white the ill-gotten wealth of "thieves".
Gandhi also took a swipe at ruling Samjwadi Party, saying he will give UP a government of farmers, labourers and people of every religion and caste and not that of a selected few.
The Congress vice President said he will force the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre for a loan waiver for the distressed farmers.
Gandhi's yatra passed through various constituencies in this district and entered Modinagar where he was accorded a rousing welcome by party workers before he headed for Delhi.
The Kisan Yatra will end on Thursday at Parliament Street in the national capital.
"Modiji had said he has a 56-inch chest and will fight out corruption, but he instead brought out a 'Fair and Lovely scheme' for turning the blackmoney of the country's thieves into white.
