UP govt remembers farmers only in advertisements: Priyanka
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday targeted the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh over its treatment of farmers, alleging that the Yogi Adityanath dispensation remembered them only in advertisements.
Her targeting the UP government came over a media report that in separate incidents, two farmers from Mahoba and Hamirpur allegedly committed suicide over debt issues.
“The UP government has devised new ways to harass the farmers. It cheated in the name of loan waiver. Jailed farmers in the name of electricity bill,” Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
No compensation is being given for the crops damaged due to floods and rain, the Congress general secretary in-charge of UP East alleged.
The BJP government in Uttar Pradesh only remembered farmers in advertisements, she claimed.
