The Congress Vice President said he would give the NDA dispensation "zero out of 10" for its handling of issues involving farmers and labourers as he arrived here to meet with cultivators who have suffered crop loss due to unseasonal rainfall and hailstorms.
"The move of BJP-led government has affected farmers and labourers of Amethi and 10 neighbouring districts. The Centre wanted to take revenge from me, but the move has affected farmers.
His attack on the Modi government comes in the wake of Union Minister Smriti Irani's tour of the Congress pocket borough -- where she had unsuccessfully contested against Gandhi in the last Lok Sabha election -- and her charge that he cared more for a business house than for the farmers of Amethi.
"The PM is visiting foreign countries, but he does not go to the houses of farmers and labourers," Gandhi said.

Gandhi said that he would give "zero out of 10" to the Modi government on its handling of farmers and labourers' issues.

"If we talk of farmers and labourers, I will give zero out of 10 (to Modi government)," Rahul said at Haidergarh in Barabanki district en route to Amethi when asked how he would rate its performance during its first year in office.

"(But) if some industrialists and corporate houses are concerned, I will give 10 out of 10," he added.

Earlier, Gandhi was given a warm welcome here by locals and farmers who assured him of their support in his struggle for their cause.
