Reacting sharply to Congress president Rahul Gandhi's criticism about direct transfer scheme for farmers, Shah said: Rahul Gandhi doesn't even have the patience of studying the scheme. When they had waived loan in UPA-1, Rs 53,000 crore loan amount of 3 crore farmers was waived off. Whereas, the 6,000 rupees yearly assistance to farmers, being given by the NDA government, will benefit 15 crore farmers. First Rahul should know the difference between Kharif and Rabi crop before talking about farmers.Earlier on Saturday, Shah had quipped that if the Mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) forms government at the Centre, there would be a different Prime Minister every day in a week and the country would run without a Prime Minister at the end of the week, on Sunday.
