In a scathing attack, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is playing politics over the blood of soldiers who have sacrificed their lives in Jammu & Kashmir.

Rahul Gandhi was speaking during his road show on the last day of his month-long Kisan Yatra from Deoria in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh to Delhi.

"Jo hamare jawan hain jinhone apna khoon diya hai, Jammu and Kashmir mein khoon diya hai, jinhone Hindustan ke liye surgical strike kiye hain, unke khoon ke peeche aap chhupe hain. Unki aap dalali kar rahe ho. Yeh bilkul galat hai. {You (Modi) are hiding behind the blood of soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir and those who carried out the surgical strikes for India. You are exploiting their sacrifices, which is very wrong}," he said.

He also added that, "Modi ji promised bank accounts to everyone, but there is no money in those accounts. All his promises were fake"

Earlier today, Rahul targeted Modi over the IDS scheme alleging that he had failed to act against blackmoney despite his talk of "56-inch chest" to fight corruption. He criticised the scheme by and added that PM Modi has instead brought out a a scheme for turning into white the ill-gotten wealth of "thieves".

Rahul also asked Modi government to announce a debt waiver for farmers.
