The Congress retaliated on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attack on the opposition against the backdrop of the farmers’ agitation, claiming on Friday that the central government was working on a policy of ‘thak do, bhaga do’ to the donors. The party’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also said that the Modi government should apologize to the farmers by withdrawing “excuses and” stopping the eventualization “and withdrawing all three” black laws “.
In fact, Prime Minister Modi on Friday blamed the people who took political interest in the guise of the ongoing deadlock between the farmers and the government agitating against the three agricultural laws. He said that unrelated issues like release of accused of violence and making highways toll-free have started to dominate in place of concerns about minimum support price (MSP).
Modi government is working on the policy of ‘thak do aur bhaga do’ to the farmers – will get a befitting answer!
The Prime Minister is giving ‘cleanliness on TV’ and the minister does not want the welfare of the farmer on ‘cries of letters’!
‘No hypocrisy’, ‘No propaganda of lies’ –
BJP government should end three black laws

Strongly defending the three agricultural laws, Modi said that the government is ready to negotiate even with those who are against the government due to different ideology but this dialogue should be based on “rationale, facts and issues” . Congress general secretary Surjewala, while retaliating the Prime Minister’s attack, told reporters that for 31 days in the bitter winter, the Annadata farmer of the country has been pleading for justice at the ‘Delhi door’. Till now 44 farmers have been martyred. But the hangover of the bourgeoisie, the heart of the Modi government did not budge.
He claimed that Prime Minister Modi and the BJP government are working on the policy of ‘thak do and bhaga do’ to the farmers. The Prime Minister calls for cleanliness and his ministers cry on TV, but the Modi government, a ‘servant’ of a handful of capitalists, has become a ‘farmer enemy’. The bitter truth is that the Modi government does not want to solve the problem by resorting to political dishonesty, cunning and pranks.
The Congress leader alleged that Prime Minister Modi, who dug roads in the way of farmers, got water canons to be applied to farmers in winter and used sticks to bring back the honor fund today. Surjewala said that according to the Agricultural Census 2015-16 in India, there are a total of 14.64 crore farmers, who cultivate 15.78 crore hectares of land. In the Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, in the year 2018-19, instead of Rs 88,000 crore, only Rs 6,005 crore was added.
Similarly, in the election year 2019-20, Rs 49,196 crore and in the year 2020-21, Rs 38,872 crore have been poured. He said that today the BJP is calling the farmer brothers as terrorists, mushrooms, crumbling gangs, misguided gangs, Khalistani and you are tricking them. It is shameful that the Agriculture Minister in his letter has even called farmers as political puppets.
The Congress leader also said that Modi government should apologize to the farmers for making excuses, stop the event and stop all the three black laws.
