Barabanki: Uttar Pradesh Congress Scheduled Castes wing Central Zone President Tanuj Punia has termed the promises made by Yogi government regarding farmers as false.
On getting the locks hanging at the Mubarakpur Government Wheat Purchase Centre in Barabanki, he said that “we will give the facility to purchase wheat till the last farmer”, this statement of the Chief Minister of the state proved to be false. Locks are hanging at wheat procurement centres. The farmer is forced to return after bringing his wheat and seeing the lock.
Keeping the demand, he said that, “The government should understand the problems of the farmers and ensure wheat procurement in the presence of senior officers by opening the government purchase centre by July 15.”
Tanuj Punia said that in view of the problems of the farmers, the state in-charge and national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had also written a letter to the Chief Minister of the state requesting that the wheat procurement of the farmers be done with guarantee at the government procurement centres.
The Agriculture Minister of Yogi government publicly made a false and factless statement of record wheat procurement in the state, 1000 more procurement centres opened on paper than last year and purchase of wheat till June 22. Whereas the reality is that till now the government purchase centre is locked.
He said that the wheat of the farmer is eating moisture due to the untimely heavy rains, but the Chief Minister and the Agriculture Minister of the BJP government, the enemy of the country’s Annadata, are patting their backs by showing false statements, juggling of figures.
SC Central Zone President Tanuj Punia and Congress Committee President Mohammad Mohsin condemned the BJP government and said that the farmers who were forced to sell their wheat crop at throwaway prices after the destruction of their Mentha crop would definitely neglect their And will take account of the wastage in 2022.
