As Opposition parties boosted the stake against the Centre over the disputed situation of disregarding farm laws through a series of agitations across the district, BJP is all geared up to arrange a farmers’ rally in support of the acts on Tuesday, in Dhanbad.
The rally will be a part of the BJP’s nation-wide campaign. It will be held on the Zila Parishad Ground, and will be assisted by former state president of the party Ravindra Rai, besides a host of other leaders.
The party claims that over 10,000 farmers will be attending it.
“Congress is taking political mileage by misleading farmers while the Left parties are trying to aggravate the situation,” Dhanbad MP P.N Singh mentioned it to the reporters in the presence of four BJP MLAs Raj Sinha (Dhanbad) Dhullu Mahto (Baghmara), Aparna Sengupta (Nirsa) and Indrajit Mahto (Sindri).
“The farm laws will increase the income of farmers But the Opposition parties, led by Congress, who are not concerned about the wellbeing of the farmers, are opposing the bill and giving it a political colour,” he said.
He claimed that the excellent work of Prime Minister Narendra Modi can be obvious from the fact that the agricultural budget of the country for 2020-21 was Rs 1,34,399 crore, almost six times of the 2013-14 budget.
“Agricultural production has significantly increased under our rule at the Centre. Compared to 25.54 million tonne of food grain in 2015-16 the production reached to 296.65 million tonne in 2019-20,” Singh added.
He also said “real farmers” were delighted with the farm laws.
