Digvijaya slams Centre over farmers’ agitation

Bhopal: Former Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh criticized the BJP-led government, condemning its actions to prevent farmers from entering Delhi for a peaceful protest. Speaking to reporters in Bhopal on Wednesday, Singh expressed disapproval of the government’s interference with the farmers’ right to protest. He pointed out the unfulfilled promises made by the central government regarding the Minimum Support Price (MSP) law, withdrawal of cases against farmers, and accountability for the Lakhimpur Kheri incident.

Singh highlighted the irony of Prime Minister Modi assigning Corporate Minister Piyush Goyal to engage with the farmers, emphasizing Goyal’s association with corporate interests. According to Singh, this choice raises concerns about the government’s commitment to addressing the needs of farmers, as Goyal is perceived as representing the corporate world, whose interests may not align with those of the farming community.
