"The one year of the Modi government has been a year of broken promises and a period of U-turn. Congress' job will be to expose its insensitivity," AICC spokesman Gaurab Gogoi said here.

"The most important promise made by PM Modi, other than bringing back black money, was to ensure remunerative prices for farmers by adding 50 percent profit into the peasants' input cost. But, after coming to power, his promise has been buried at the bottom of the false promises dustbin," he added.

Stating that Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was going to the houses of farmers to know their sufferings, Gaurab asserted "Farmers can communicate with the Prime Minister only though Twitter because Modi has kept himself away from issues concerning the masses."

Quoting the 2015 Economic Survey, he alleged the agricultural growth of the nation has gone down from 4.7 percent in 2013-14 to 1.1 percent in 2014-15 under the Modi government.

"The BJP-led NDA government has not supported the farmers in their crisis. On the contrary, it has left them isolated. It has been highly insensitive in the last one year, while the Prime Minister is busy taking selfies abroad," the AICC spokesman said.
