BJP MLA from MP expelled for ‘beiman farmer’ remark

State BJP chief Rakesh Singh has terminated the primary membership of Hakim Singh Aanjana, Ujjain district secretary of the Kisan Morcha, with immediate effect, party spokesperson Lokendra Parashar said.

The language used by Aanjana was not acceptable, he said.

The video surfaced at a time when farmers' organisations have announced an agitation from June 1 to 10 to press their demands.

In the video, Aanjana is purportedly seen calling farmers "beimaan" (dishonest) and "chor" (thieves).

Even those who hadn't grown garlic got registered to sell the crop when the government announced a minimum support price of Rs 800 per quintal for the spice, he allegedly said in the video, adding that farmers should be "beaten with shoes".

He himself was a farmer and satisfied with Shivraj Singh Chouhan government's work in the agriculture sector, Aanjana was purportedly seen saying. Aanjana could not be contacted for comments.
