Mallikarjun Kharge attacks Modi govt for curbing voice of farmers

0 20

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Tuesday accused the Modi government of crushing the voice of farmers after failing to fulfill promises to them for 10 years. Kharge’s attack on the government came on a day thousands of farmers called for a protest in Delhi Chalo and the capital turned into a virtual fortress with authorities preventing them from entering the city.

“Barbed wire, teargas from drones, nails and guns… everything is organized. The dictatorial Modi government is trying to suppress the voice of farmers,” the Congress leader said in a post on X.

“Remember how the farmer was maligned by calling him ‘andolanjeevi’ and ‘parasite’ and 750 farmers died,” he said in his post in Hindi.

In 10 years, Kharge said, the Modi government has broken three promises made to the country’s food providers. These are, he added, the doubling of farmers’ income by 2022, implementation of input costs and 50 percent in accordance with the Swaminathan report and giving legal status to MSP.

Extending full support to the farmers’ movement, Kharge said the Congress will today raise the voice of justice to farmers at an event in Ambikapur, Chhattisgarh.

“We will not be afraid, we will not bow down,” Kharge said in his post.
