Talking about the Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY) scheme, Gandhi, while addressing a poll rally here, said, "NYAY scheme is the diesel for the engine of Indian economy. The Indian economy will jump-start as soon as this diesel will be put into it... The NYAY scheme money will be put in the accounts of five crore women. I know that women use the money wisely."

NYAY is a scheme under which the Congress has promised Rs 72,000 to 5 crore families every year if the party is voted to power.

In Kushinagar, Gandhi said the NDA-led BJP government's decisions of demonetisation and implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) caused "large-scale unemployment" in the country. "When Congress government comes to power in 2019, no farmer will be sent to jail for not repaying bank loans, he said.
