Mumbai: The BJP government at the Center has no faith in the farmers who provide food to the country twice a day and protect the country’s land by joining hands with China and Pakistan on the border. Farmers in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh have been protesting for 60 days without considering the cold and wind. Whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a simple inquiry, NCP President Sharad Pawar slammed him.
Farmers from across the state had gathered in large numbers in Mumbai on Monday to support the agitating farmers in Delhi against the central government’s agricultural laws. The red storm left the capital, Mumbai. A farmers ‘and workers’ conference was organized at Azad Maidan. Along with Sharad Pawar, State Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat, PWD leader Jayant Patil, Home Minister Jitendra Awhad, SP leader Abu Azmi, farmer leader Ashok Dhawale, Ajit Navale, B.Sc. G. Coal Patil, Mumbai Congress President Bhai Jagtap, Teesta Setalvad and others were present. At this time, Pawar criticized the central government.
The role of this law was introduced at the Center in 2003. After that, when we were in government, I myself had three meetings of agriculture ministers from all the states; But this discussion has not gone to completion. After that, when the BJP regime came to the Center, they brought laws without any discussion. It is a law that adversely affects the lives of farmers. So we will not take the role of watchdog, we need discussion, the protesters demanded. There is an independent select committee to discuss the law in depth. The way could have been paved by sending this law to this committee. This was the way for agricultural law; But without discussion, the central government trampled on the law. Tried to pass the law on the strength of a majority, destroying parliamentary signals; But the common man in this country will destroy this law and you, warned Pawar.
The explanation given by Raj Bhavan, was already reported …
As soon as the farmers’ leaders criticized the Governor’s absence, an immediate explanation was given by the Raj Bhavan. “Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has the additional charge of Governor of Goa. It was earlier informed that the Governor will not be able to meet the farmers’ delegation as he will address the first session of the Goa Legislative Assembly on January 25, the Raj Bhavan said today.
The governor has time to meet Kangana, but …
There is no such governor in the history of Maharashtra. The Governor left for Goa. The governor has time to meet Kangana; But there is no time to meet the farmers. He was expected to be confronted by the governor. This was the moral responsibility of the governor; But he does not have civility, said Sharad Pawar.
