Watch: Rahul Gandhi holds tractor rally, mocks PM Modi over MGNREGA allocation

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday said Narendra Modi, who "ridiculed" MGNREGA when he took over as Prime Minister in 2014, was "forced to accept" the fact that the ambitious rural job scheme brought in by the previous UPA government played the role of "saviour" of people of the country during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"When Modi became Prime Minister, in the Parliament House, in front of all of us, he ridiculed MGNREGA.

He said MGNREGA was an insult to the Indian people," Gandhi said.

"And he was forced to accept during COVID-19 that only MGNREGA played the role of saviour of our people," Gandhi added.

The Congress leader also took out a tractor rally in his Wayanad to support agitating farmers.

Rahul's tractor rally was held between Thrikkaipatta to Muttil.
