Rahul Gandhi lashed out at Modi government
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in Ambikapur (Chhattisgarh) – “Today farmers are marching to Delhi, but they are being stopped.” Tear gas shells are being fired at them. After all, what do they want to say? Farmers are just asking for the fruits of their hard work. BJP government gave Bharat Ratna to MS Swaminathan, but does not want to implement what Swaminathan had said. His report clearly mentions that farmers should get legal rights regarding Minimum Support Price (MSP). The BJP government does not want to do this at all. When the NDA government was formed, they said that we will guarantee (law) MSP to the farmers of India. Swaminathan will fulfill what has been said in the report.
Rakesh Tikait angry at Modi government
Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) chief Rakesh Tikait said- "When the opposition of the country is weak then dictators are born in the country. All political parties are one. Both those in power and those in opposition. Let them save their government. When the king of the country is saying that we will win 400 seats, then where is the need for elections in the country? You renew this election. Why are you making the country crazy?" Earlier, he had warned the government against obstructing the farmers’ march. Farmers Union has called for a nationwide bandh on 16 February.
