Farmers are the priority of the state government: CM Yogi

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday told state assembly that the opposition was using the farmer’s agitation for its narrow political ends and maligning the image of India at global level.

Chief Minister said the opposition is not concerned for the interests of the farmers but for the `dalal’ (middleman) in agriculture markets who face the threat of extinction after the new agriculture marketing law has given the freedom to the farmers to sell their agriculture produce anywhere to anybody.

He even went to the extent of alleging that those who have grabbed the farmers land are now shedding crocodile tears.

“The new agriculture law give freedom to the farmers to sell their produce other than mandi is hurting the middlemen and their political masters. It’s not the farmers but the middlemen are fuelling the agitation as they are rattled that the money will be directly credited in the savings account of the farmers ‘’, said the chief minister.

“On republic day our Constitution, national flag and Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar were insulted. Who are those people in the cover of farmers agitation are out to malign India at global arena while India has earned a new stature in the world by developing two corona vaccine and supplying millions of dose free vaccine to many countries’’, said Yogi Adityanath in the state assembly.

Chief Minister rejected the charge of the opposition that farmers in UP are being penalised by the police for taking part in protest on Delhi border. CM was responding to the adjournment notice given by the opposition for raising the issue of farmer’s agitation chief minister defended the three farm laws.
