Underlining the importance of ‘kisan and jawan’, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said both were equally important for the country and the people cannot “imagine” their lives without them.

“We cannot imagine our lives without farmers in the field, and jawans on the borders,” he said at a road show in Mainpuri. The Congress leader said people were aware of the conditions in which jawans are living on the borders to protect the country.

“They risk their lives for the country but they do not have facilities,” Rahul said, adding salaries and facilities for the jawans and their families needed to be enhanced. He said though his party is not in power in the country or the state, it will continue to fight for the rights of farmers from Uttar Pradesh.

Rahul, who was accompanied by Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee president Raj Babbar, paid floral tributes to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi in a nagar palika campus in Mainpuri.

            What a company Paplu has got the great Diggy? No wonder both talk on the same wave length.The Diggy has said that BJP and Mr Modi are war mongers and questions his 52" chest? Suddenly paplu realizes that India has carried out a surgical strike and then both joins and tell the country men their sarkar had also carried out surgical strike and we do not where and when? May be at the Hospital the doctors carry out surgery and these two are calling them surgical strikes! Paplu did not have the decency to condemn the Uri attack by terrorists and found his Cot pey charcha allowed the farmers to scoot away with the cots has suddenly found love for Jawans and Kissans!. They joke too muxh and should reserve it for fututre. Jai HInd.

              Very charitable words towards Kisans and Jawans .He forgets that his party was in powers for nearly sixty years.If after sixty years he has to say this,one can imagine the contribution made by his party to the welfare of Kisans and Jawans.
