Dhordo (Gujarat): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said his government is addressing the concerns of farmers over the new agri laws and accused the opposition parties of misguiding them.

Modi was speaking after laying foundation stones of a desalination plant, a hybrid renewable energy park, and a fully automated milk processing and packing plant in his home state Gujarat.

“Farmers gathered near Delhi are being misled as part of a conspiracy. Farmers are told that their land will be grabbed by others if new farm reforms get implemented. I want to ask you, did the dairy owner take your cattle because you are selling milk to him?” the prime minister said.

“Opposition parties, when they were in power, were in favour of these farm sector reforms, but did not take any decision back then. Now when the country has decided to embrace these reforms, these people are spreading falsehood and misleading farmers. I want to reiterate that my government is ready 24 hours to resolve all your doubts,” Modi said.

Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana and elsewhere have been protesting near various border points of Delhi including Singhu and Tikri for over a fortnight demanding the Centre repeal three new farm laws.

  1. Does a cause become right just by exercising a constitutional right in its cause, even though the exercised right is in violation of another greater constitutional right?
    Just asking

  2. You try to bulldoze farmers lives without consulting anyone connected with farming, and try to make it into a law in a hurried and opaque manner, and that’s not conspiracy? And if they cry in alarm and anguish, that’s conspiracy? Prime minister of this country should stop behaving as if he has been sent from another planet to boss over aliens with whom he feels no humane connect

  3. Come on Mr Prime Minister. Just have a look at your track record. Your first major “reform”, demonetization was to eradicate black money, then nip terrorism, both external and internal, and, curtail the need of free floating currency! A golden bullet which was to be a panacea for all of India’s evils. Instead, what we got was a healthy economy flushed down the tubes. Then, we had a hastily implemented GST which proved to be a double whammy for an already struggling economy. Next, all your foreign policy iniatives, especially with China proved nought, to the extent that everybody except yourself, knew you were lying when you claimed there was no intrusion into our land. Abrogation of article 370, introduction of CAA and NRC similarly came with tall promises none of which have culminated into anything except misery. The jury is still out in the way you implemented the COVID lockdown. Governance, sir, is not a hit and miss experiment. The lives and livelihoods of people are at stake. We, the people, have no trust in your reforms.
