Opposition attacks Thackeray government with the help of farmers
This year, heavy rains have caused huge losses to farmers. But even after nearly two months, the state government has not announced any help, saying it has been repeatedly criticized by the opposition. In particular, Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana leader Raju Shetty had given a warning to the state government. If the farmers’ Dussehra goes in the dark, your Diwali will not be sweet, said Raju Shetty directly to the state government. Apart from this, many BJP leaders had surrounded the state government with the help of farmers. On the other hand, the reason for the panchnama was being given by the state government.
“Heavy rains have caused a lot of damage in Marathwada. Instead of helping the farmers, the Chief Minister only makes speeches. Speech does not fill the stomachs of farmers. Therefore, the Chief Minister should immediately help the farmers, ”said Raju Shetty. He also targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi while speaking on the farmers’ massacre at Lakhimpur Kheri. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has time to meet and talk to the players. However, Raju Shetty had said that he did not have time to visit the agitating and martyred farmers for the last several days.
Ajit Pawar’s answer to Raju Shetty
Raju Shetty said that if the farmers’ Dussehra becomes bitter, the leaders will not be allowed to sweeten Diwali. We give the FRP by looking at what the previous year’s recovery is. If one per cent increase in sugar, the difference is Rs 300 per 10 kg. In Gujarat, payment is made in three stages, so farmers in Gujarat get a higher price of Rs. 500 to Rs. 600 per tonne. Once the texture of sugar is ready, interest starts at Rs. When the factories start on the 15th, the sugar of Rs. 10 crores is falling, that is, the interest of Rs. There are financial issues, discussions are underway, Raju Shetty, the leader of the farmers’ association, says in his own way that a decision can be taken after discussion, said Ajit Pawar.
