Varun Gandhi to focus on debt-ridden farmers
Varun Gandhi wants only work, No Negativity :- Congress Vice president Rahul Gandhi’s khat sabhas might have created a debate around the party’s concern for the farmers, but the other Gandhi scion, BJP MP Varun Gandhi is set to take up the cause of “debt-ridden farmers” on the digital platform in a big way to route the donations for Indian farmers from across the world.
The MP has visited his constituency Sultanpur on Tuesday and has also donated free houses to 28 poor families further in a move that he has described as “non political and non election related.”
Seen as one of the prospective strong faces of the party in Uttar Pradesh, Varun Gandhi has said on Monday that “he has never been interested in the State politics” and that he has always been focusing on some of the real issues and finding solutions to them.
The website and app put together by a top technology professionals and micro finance experts, which will take forward his initiative of raising over Rs 18 crores that have already made 3,660 farmers debt-free, and connect the world to the poorest villages of India, Gandhi said.

On Tuesday, he had donated homes built from his own money with no government aid or MPLAD funds to altogether 28 poor families and said that a hundred more houses will also be donated in the weeks to come. “I want it to be a people’s movement. We want to take the programme to 10 districts and build 3000 houses,” he told to a leading daily. Interestingly the first function of the day had seven beneficiaries of which four were Muslims.
When asked about Vinay Katiyar’s statement on the Ram Temple controversy on Tuesday Gandhi said, “I am doing the politics of youth, poor and marginalised. That is my only focus.”
Gandhi’s soon to be launched app and website will also feature stories of debt ridden farmers and help them to reach out to donors and organisations across the world for some financial help and professional assistance.
“It will also cite the exact plan for the farmer to restart his agricultural path so as to not repeat the mistakes of the past and fall into debt again. This will be carefully monitored case-by-case. This is the way someone in Seattle will be able to help out a poor farmer in Ghazipur,” Gandhi said.
