Farmers are being intimidated: Modi
PM Modi said that the agrarian reforms are completely the same, whose farmers’ organizations and opposition parties have also been demanding for years. The Government of India is committed to farmer welfare and we will continue to assure the farmers and resolve their concerns.
He said that those who are sitting in opposition today and are misleading the farmers, they were in favor of these agricultural reforms during their government. He could not take a decision during his government. Today, when the country has taken a historic step, these people are misleading the farmers. He said that a conspiracy is going on to confuse the farmers around Delhi. They are being scared that after the new agricultural reforms, the farmers’ land will be taken over by other people.
