Singh, a Lok Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh's Bhadohi, also said that those throwing vegetables and pouring milk on the streets as part of a 10-day farmers' stir were not "real farmers" but those executing the "conspiracy" of some "power hungry" people.
Talking to reporters here today, Singh said, "Do you see a farmer in the faces of Congress leaders like Rahul Gandhi and Jyotiraditya Scindia? Their information about farmers is bookish."
He added, "These leaders did not spend their childhood in the lap of "maai" (mother) but in the lap of "daai" (babysitter). We know what love for the motherland is."
Gandhi, while participating in the 'Kisan Samraddhi Sankalp Rally' in Mandsaur on June 6, had announced that farm loans would be waived within 10 days of the Congress coming to power in Madhya Pradesh.
"It is good that Rahul has learnt to imitate Prime Minister Narendra Modi. During assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Modi had promised that the state government would waive off the loans of farmers," Singh said.
He, however, added that Gandhi should not nurture any illusion that the Congress would be back in power in Madhya Pradesh "in this birth".
In reply to a question, the BJP Kisan Morcha chief said, "Those throwing fruits and vegetables and pouring milk on the streets are not real farmers. They are executing the conspiracy of some power hungry people."
Singh said that he was ready to talk with the Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Mahasangh chief Shiv Kumar Sharma "Kakkaji" as well as other leaders on the problems facing the agriculture sector.
Singh was in Indore to participate in the farmers support march organised by the BJP. Madhya Pradesh Finance Minister Jayant Malaiya and BJP's national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya also took part.
