Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi addressed a fishermen's gathering at a village in Kerala's Thrissur. “Land is becoming very valuable and it is owned by farmers, they have spent last 50-60 yrs working on it. Central government wants to take their land away. So we are fighting them. The kisan (farmer) is asking me why is the NDA government intent on destroying us. Why are they not giving us the correct Minimum Support Price? Why are they not giving us compensation when rain and hail destroys our crops?” said the Congress leader.

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday wished the Narendra Modi government a "happy birthday" on finishing its first year in power without forgetting his month-old jibe at the Centre. "On behalf of the Congress party, I would like to officially wish the suit-boot ki sarkar a very happy birthday," the 44-year-old leader said at a rally in Kerala's Kozhikode district organised to take on the Modi government on its much-hyped anniversary.
