Now farmers reaching Delhi to protest NDA government's alleged anti-farmer policy
New Delhi, Nov 28: United opposition is planning to attack the policies of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government along with the farmer's organisation from across the country in the elections year. All small and big farmers' organisations have started moving towards Delhi and reach Delhi to participate in a protest on November 29 and November 30, 2018.
One of the leaders who is part of the organisation attacked the policies of the NDA government which he alleged to be anti-farmer.
The farmer leaders have not only targeted the National Democratic Alliance government for its anti-farmer policies but also the Congress. Chairman of Akhil Bharatiya Kishan Sangharsh Samiti BM Singh said that over 200 farmers' organisation have already started moving towards Delhi to join the protest. Farmer leaders have discussed various problems of farmers.
The leader of Narmada Bachao movement Medha Patkar who is supporting farmers said that around 21 political parties have come forward for the cause and issues of farmers. Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Khadge also signed a document supporting the cause of loan waiver of farmers. Still, why did the Congress only announce loan waiver up to Rs 2 lakh only in Madhya Pradesh? This shows the dual character of political parties.
