The Congress party had to face a disastrous defeat in the 2014 national elections. The party was hit by a huge public backlash and were taken aback by the Modi wave across all parts of the country. However, things are slightly better for the Congress party now. BJP’s stern decisions like the implementation of GST and demonetization have received a lot of negative feedback from the general public.

The president of the Congress party, Rahul Gandhi has evolved as a leader and is slowly making his mark in the national politics. The 47-year-old leader recently said that the Congress party will be implementing a nation-wide farmer loan waiver if the party comes to power. Well, this scheme worked wonders in the past and helped many parties to attract the voters. It needs to be seen if it will turn savior of Congress party in the following general elections.

Rahul further added that the Modi government has left farmers to the air and that will cost them big time. He said that BJP government is supporting financial frauds who are evading the country but failing to come to the rescue the farmers who are in dire need of governments support.
