    The past perfect 'had forgotten' was used because it had happened before 'they felt'.

    Not a teacher.

    Re: why past perfect is being used

    Manishmodi, you must learn how to construct a question.

    Why had is being used? ??
    Why is 'had' being used?
    Why is 'had' used?


    Why Present perfect is being used? ??
    Why is the present perfect being used?
    Why is the present perfect used?

    One question mark is enough.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "Addressing a massive rally at the Ramlila Maidan on Sunday, Congress vice-president, Rahul Gandhi, said farmers across the country were living in fear since they felt that the Modi government had forgotten them and was only working for the rich."
    Please take care with spacing in future.
