In a clear move to counter the National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) show of strength in Ludhiana Sunday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi Monday addressed an election rally, during which they said the BJP and the Akalis ruling the state had “done nothing for farmers”.
“The BJP and Akalis have done nothing for the farmers at all. Everyday, they are giving false advertisements claiming various things. We have tried to serve the country. We have done a number of things for farmers and the poor of this country,” Manmohan Singh said on the final day of campaign for the fifth and last phase of the Lok Sabha polls.
