Condemning PM Narendra Modi for speaking in favour of the farm laws during an address at FICCI’s virtual meet, the Aam Aadmi Party today asked why the PM was answering farmer’s questions in front of businessmen.
The Centre is running away from reality, cozying up with big business houses and playing every card possible to defame the farmers’ struggle.
Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema said the address given by PM Narendra Modi showed that the PM was in no mood to revoke the Central farm laws. Moreover, Piyush Goyal and other Central Ministers were peddling a lie campaign to prove anti-nationals were behind the farmers’ agitation. This strategy of Narendra Modi is absolutely condemnable.
Cheema said, “It is shocking that for months now farmers have been bracing the freezing cold in protest against the farm laws and have surrounded the national capital, but Narendra Modi is finding no time to listen to the agitating farmers but has all the time in the world to speak in favour of the Acts.”
He said instead of speaking about what the farmers thought about the laws, Modi was busy speaking about what he thought about them.
