Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar on Monday asked why Key Minister Narendra Modi did not get to out to farmers, primarily from Punjab and Haryana, who have been staging a protest in opposition to three farm legislation for around two months along Delhi’s border.
Addressing a farmers rally at Mumbai’s Azad Maidan, Pawar claimed, “Is Punjab in Pakistan? Why did the PM not converse to the protesting farmers of Punjab?”
“I congratulate you all that you have gathered right here to express solidarity with the farmers of Punjab, Haryana Western UP and Rajasthan. They have created a historic protest. This struggle is not effortless. The kinds who are in energy nowadays have no empathy in the direction of this country’s farmers and labourers. For the last 60 days, these farmers have not cared about rains, sunlight or chilly whilst protesting in Delhi. But the Primary Minister has not even enquired about them,” Pawar explained.
“Who are these protesters? They are farmers from Punjab who have produced huge contribution to the liberty struggle. They had supplied their life at the Jallianwala Bagh. This is the farming group who held rifles to protect the place from China and Pakistan immediately after our Independence. This is the farmer who feeds 120 crore people of this country,” he reported.
The veteran politician claimed that irrespective of recurring recommendation by the opposition for sending all the a few rules to a pick out committee, the governing administration bulldozed its way in passing the legislation.
“Folks opposed the government’s stand of not making it possible for any dialogue on this. People will damage you and your regulations. And this is the beginning of it,” he reported.
Condition Minister and Congress president Balasaheb Thorat also lashed out at the central governing administration said the Modi federal government labored for capitalists. “This is a ploy to snatch your land legal rights,” he explained to the gathering.
Thousands of farmers have marched from Nashik to Mumbai to convey their solidarity with the protesting farmers in Delhi.
