BJP Kisan Morcha president Virendra Singh today attacked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, saying he was "anti-farmer" and often visited villages for "recreation".


Rejecting Gandhi's assertion that the BJP and its leaders were "anti-farmer", Singh said that under the BJP government, budget for agriculture and rural development was raised to over 42 per cent of total allocations.


"Rahul Gandhi is ancestrally anti-farmer. What will he (Rahul) talk about farmers and farming as he cannot tell the difference between plants of jowar and bajra," Singh said at a press conference.  -- PTI
