It’s arhtiyas, not farmers’ protest: Nadda to CM Punjab

New Delhi, October 22

BJP president JP Nadda today slammed Capt Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and those "instigating" farmers in Punjab.

He said the ongoing agitation in the state was "not of farmers but middlemen". "Farmers in Punjab are not even allowed to choose their 'arhtiya', the BJP president said, addressing a group farmers from the Delhi region at the party headquarters.

"It is because of monopoly of some people in the 'mandis' that farmers have to sell their produce at a price lower than market rate," he said.

Slamming the Congress, which is leading the agitation in Punjab and has also passed three farm Bills, Nadda said a "well-educated" person like Amarinder Singh is saying that MSP should be mentioned in the Act whereas he knows very well that it is always implemented via an executive order.

Nadda accused the Congress of "fueling agitation because they know nothing except politics". — TNS
