NDA Government had betrayed the farmers in the country, former Maharashtra Social Justice Minister Shivajirao Moghe said here today.
Narendra Modi-led NDA Government, which has completed two years in power, had betrayed the farmers in the country, former Maharashtra Social Justice Minister Shivajirao Moghe said here today.
“Just before the Lok Sabha elections, Modi had visited the village Dabhadi in Arni tehsil of Yavatmal district where he addressed the farmers….The farmers believed his tall promises and voted him to power,” the Congress leader said.
“But he could not do anything for the farmers in the last two years,” Moghe said.
He sought to know what steps Modi took to fulfil his promise of raising the minimum support price of agricultural produce.
“Acche din” remained only a dream, he added.
The NDA Government and the state Government also could not improve the situation with regard to supply of quality seeds and fertilisers at reasonable price, he alleged.
Prices of fuel were not slashed despite the international crude prices coming down, in fact the prices of petrol and diesel were increased by the Government, he pointed out.
The farmers’ suicides too had not stopped, the Congress leader said.
Modi addressed 42 rallies in Maharashtra during the Lok Sabha elections, but he didn’t visit the drought-hit areas of the state even once afterwards, he said.
