Master communicator; struggles with complex issues; short attention span.
In a thorough explanation, Gandhi stated that there was ‘Rs 0’ contribution to Congress state government’s Rs 8,500 crore farm loan waiver.
He added that due to the PM’s crop insurance scheme, private insurance firms are bagging huge profits and farmers are suffering.

The Congress president’s tweet came a day after PM Modi held the Siddaramaiah Government responsible for the miserable condition of the state farmers.
He attacked Karnataka’s Congress government over its alleged distance towards executing the crop insurance scheme to insult them against crop loss.
"I keep getting complaints regarding Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana from Karnataka, but one of our MPs has done a great work in his constituency with the help of Kisan morcha workers. He, however, did not name the MP.
"The Karnataka government is indifferent...it does not care about the benefits that a farmer can get from the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana," he said.
