"The Congress government is known for its scams and minting money at the cost of poverty in the country," he said.
Rajnath was on a tour of various villages in the area under the programme 'chaupal'.
He accused the government of failing to take note of farmers' problems and alleged that the government's policies have led to an increase in the gap between the rich and the poor.
On the issue of land acquisition by the Uttar Pradesh government, Rajnath said the state government cannot snatch lands from the farmers without their consent and should maintain equality and parity in deciding the land price after consulting the farmers.
"The BJP would fight for the rights of the farmers and the time has come to change the atmosphere in the state in the interest of farmers," he said.
