Congress President Rahul Gandhi Friday promised to waive that farm loans in 10 days if his party is voted to power in Odisha and charged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his "junior partner" in Odisha, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, with befooling farmers by talking big but delivering little, and showering gifts on their industrialist-friends.

Addressing a Congress rally in Bhubaneswar, Gandhi promised to farmers of Odisha that farm loans will be waived in 10 days if his party is voted to power in the state. Odisha goes for assembly polls later this year.

He gave example of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, where the party formed its governments recently and fulfilled the commitment of loan waiver well before the 10-day time-period promised.

He alleged that Narendra Modi "remote-controls" Patnaik, who heads the state's ruling Biju Janata Dal.

The Congress president accused Modi and Patnaik of doing their marketing through industrialists.
