Madhya Pradesh farmers protest: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu today slammed the Congress Party for ‘politicising’ the Madhya Pradesh protests. In an interview with Times Now, Naidu talked about how Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is doing all that he could to control the problem in Madhya Pradesh and also about the Congress party giving the whole situation a political twist. Venkaiah Naidu statement has come after news of Rahul Gandhi made an attempt to visit the violence-affected Mandsaur today.
Earlier today, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi left for Mandsaur by road to meet the kin of the farmers who were killed in the farmers’ agitation – he even took to a motorcycle, riding pillion, so that he could reach the place even as the state government has said that he would not be allowed to visit the affected areas. Venkaiah Naidu said, “Congress has highlighted today’s incident and has given it a political angle. It is sad that they are trying to intensify the agitation with their action.” He further said that Congress should try and sympathize with the people who have been affected because of the unrest and that they should not ask for a state ‘bandh.’
