New Delhi, November 20 (KMS): Following the Modi government’s announcement regarding the rollback of controversial farm laws on Friday, Congress leader, Priyanka Gandhi, said that Prime Minister, Narendra Modi repealed the farm laws after seeing defeat in the elections.
Priyanka Gandhi in a series of tweets said that Modi didn’t care either about the killing of over 600 farmers or the Lakhimpur Kheri incident where protesting farmers were run over by the vehicle of BJP Minister Ajay Mishra’s son.
She said the BJP leaders have insulted farmers by calling them ‘terrorists, traitors, goons and miscreants. She added that Modi himself called the agitators ‘andolanjeevi’. It is difficult to trust the Prime Minister’s intention and his changed attitude, she added.
“Now that you have started seeing the defeat in the elections, you suddenly started to understand the truth of this country… this country has been made by the farmers, this country belongs to the farmers, the farmer is the true caretaker of this country and no government can rule the country by crushing the interest of the farmers,” she tweeted.
Samajwadi Party chief, Akhilesh Yadav, referring to the repeal decision said, “Fake apologies will not work in front of the real deaths of hundreds of farmers.”
Pertinently, in UP, major opposition parties have said that decision was taken entirely on political consideration.
