The Congress vice president, who undertook a 15-km 'padyatra' (foot march) through five villages in scorching heat and met families of farmers who committed suicide due to mounting debt in Adilabad district, hit out at the NDA Government for attempting to "dilute" the Land Acquisition Act passed by Congress-led UPA Government in 2013.

"Modiji and mini-Modiji claim to change India and Telangana, but they forgot the poor who actually transform the country," Rahul said, without naming Rao. "If Modiji or the Chief Minister here meet farmers then I don't have to (worry about them)," he added.

“The Government is not making use of thousands of acres of land lying unused in SEZs, but is attempting to take away land from farmers,” he charged.

The NDA Government as well the TRS Government led by K Chandrasekhar Rao in Telangana claim to work for 'Make in India' and providing jobs, Rahul said and asked if anyone in the gathering had got a job after the two Governments assumed office about a year ago.
