Saharanpur: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took a veiled jibe at Congress saying party president Rahul Gandhi thinks that “potatoes grow on trees as mango does and there are sugar trees.”
On 24th March, Yogi kick-started election campaigning for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Saharanpur and while addressing a election gathering, he was quoted by ANI as saying, “I was listening to one of the sentences of ‘Kul-Deepak’ of ‘Naamdars.’ He said that sugarcane trees have not been planted. He also said that if his government is formed, it will grow one and a half feet of potato. He thinks that potato grows on trees as mango does.”
“You could assess how much Rahul Gandhi knows about our culture or rural areas as he said that if his party comes to power then he will grow sugar plant,” UP CM said.
He claimed that in past five years PM Modi and in two years state government has done enormous development works.
Applauding his government, Yogi said that before we came to power, farmers were in crisis as they were in debt. After we coming to power our government waived off their loans and also helped them with Minimum Support Price for their crops.
