“Rahul gandhi wants to snatch away that food for the people.Is he going to stop scholarship of the children, he said.

You look at the comments by his leaders, Kapil Sibal and Jayaram Ramesh all are saying that they will stop all the subsidies, he said and asked whether they were going to stop all the subsidies for the SC, ST and OBC families? Are they stopping the farmers going to get low interest loans? ”
