Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, M. Mallikarjun Kharge, Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, has said: “He is now showing concern for farmers by announcing supportive prices for farm products when the elections for Lok Sabha are nearing.”

He was talking to presspersons here after inaugurating an Indira Canteen.

Mr. Kharge attacked Mr. Modi for not showing any interest in farmers for the past four years and asked him what was he doing when farmers committed suicide across the country owing to the agrarian crisis? “Everybody knows that he (Mr. Modi) was helping capitalists, big industrialists and corporate sectors. Thus, he may be called son of capitalists and not farmers,” Mr. Kharge said. He said that that Congress and its alliance parties will face BJP in the next LS elections together and it will be the high command which will decide the seat-sharing formula.
