He said, “PM has given debt relief to richest people in the country, why not for people who have built this country, the farmers.” He further added, “Inki (TN farmers) awaaz na Hindustan ki sarkar aur na hi PM ko sunayi deti hai. PM ki zimedaari hai ki inki baat sunein. (Their voices do not reach either the Indian Government or PM Modi. It is the responsibility of the PM to listen to them.)”
