New Delhi, February 5 (Reuters): Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of leaving farmers on roads for a year amid the COVID-19 pandemic and said his party will never do that.

Addressing a virtual rally in Kichha here ahead of the upcoming Uttarakhand Assembly polls, the Congress leader also said India does not have a prime minister but a king who expects the public to keep quiet when he takes a decision.

Gandhi said the Congress will not shut its doors on farmers, youths, labourers or the poor and it wants a partnership with them.

Elections to the 70-member Uttarakhand Assembly will be held on February 14.
