When elections become just a tool to gain power, the needs of a common man are often neglected & the latest example is set by Rahul Gandhi of Congress party.
Mr. Gandhi visited Punjab last month to meet distressed farmers where he had some conversation with a 60-yr-old farmer , S. Surjit Singh . Mr. Singh told him about the suffering caused by the crop loss due to adverse weather conditions including unseasonal rains. Today S. Surjit Singh allegedly committed suicide and the irony is that Mr. Gandhi showed all his “sympathy” to this man during his visit & even his “so called compassionate” picture made the rounds on media.
It was 28th of April when Rahul Gandhi met Mr. Singh (in a white turban), who explained his troubles to the vice president of Congress during his visit to Sirhind. Rahul Gandhi, after hearing problems of Mr. Singh assured him to help, but we all know what happened later.
Congress party has been neglecting the needs and demands of farmers in U.P as well. We wonder if Mr. Gandhi cannot solve the issue of just one farmer in spite of assuring him every possible help, how would this party be able to take care of the needs of a farmer-state i.e. Punjab. Did he come here just to get his pictures clicked and took Surjit Singh as nothing but a “voter”?
