Farmers are smarter than PM, govt cannot fool them: Rahul Gandhi

Gandhi further said that farmers are smarter than Prime Minister Narendra Modi and government can neither tire them out nor fool them. "The rice, wheat you (middle class) buy comes at the rate you purchase because of APMC and the agricultural system. This is not an assault on farmers but on the middle class and on every single youngster in the country, who is not able to get a job. Realise that your independence is being taken away.
