Ahmad Patel delivers an ‘agrarian crisis’ full toss, Jayanta Sinha hits it out for a six

Senior leader and Rajya Sabha member Ahmed Patel recently scored another self-goal for Congress party. Ahmed Patel tweeted about the wholesale food prices with a graph showing the annual rise in wholesale food prices. While Ahmed Patel’s intention was to complain of agrarian distress, he actually showed data on how wholesale food prices have fallen since 2014.

The irony of Ahmed Patel tweeting about lower food prices was not missed by many. BJP leader and Minister of State for civil aviation Jayant Sinha grabbed it immediately.

Many Twitter users too took on Patel for admitting that the Modi government has ensured low wholesale food prices after coming to power.

Some Twitter users tried to make Ahmed Patel understand the difference between inflation and deflation.

They tried pointing out that the government ensures farmers are not hit by low food prices by MSP( Minimum Support Price), something the Modi government has made sure sees a constant increase to benefit farmers.

Congress has become very accustomed to self-goals in the recent times. Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha got ridiculed on Twitter for inadvertently equating Karti Chidambaram with other economic offenders. Congress President Rahul Gandhi too recently asserted that big scams cannot continue without the involvement of top government brass, indirectly admitting the Nirav Modi scam which had begun in 2011.
