Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, in her opening address at the AICC session held at New Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium. “So it was that we introduced the Forest Rights Act in 2006, which has provided a new future for lakhs of tribal families. So it was that we financed the building of over four lakh kilometers of all-weather rural roads in different states. So it was that we ensured that procurement prices for rice and wheat more than doubled over the last ten years, triggering new prosperity for our kisans. And so it was that very recently, we got the historic Food Security Act passed that will provide highly subsidized food grains to two-third of our population. And the new Land Acquisition Act that will ensure far higher compensation to our farmers” said Sonia Gandhi.
