Akhilesh surrounded BJP on the issue of farmersOn the other hand, while attacking the BJP, Samajwadi Party National President Akhilesh Yadav has said that 4 years of BJP have proved disastrous for the farmers. By bringing three black agricultural laws, farmers have been made dependent on big capital houses. Neither the farmer is getting the price of the crop nor the promises made to him are being fulfilled. In the recent rains, thousands of tonnes of wheat was wasted due to lying in the open in the purchasing centers. Farmers are being harassed by making excuses.
Weighing is closed since May 29 in the Haat branch operating in the Asodhara submandi site of Fatehpur. Thousands of quintals of wheat are lying waiting to be weighed. Farmers are wandering with tokens. Wheat is lying in the open in the market, despite the anticipation of rain, there is no arrangement for rescue.
Wheat is not being purchased from more than 50 quintals of farmers at wheat purchasing centers in Sambhal. Wheat was not procured in Agra till April 4. The farmers who had registered online 2 months ago are also roaming around. Wheat is standing in a tractor trolley.
