PHAGWARA:Former Punjab Minister and Chairman of Punjab Agro Industries Corporation Mr. Joginder Singh Mann today assailed the Modi government for 'humiliating' the food growers of the country on pretext of the talks.
In a statement issued here today, the Chairman of Punjab Agro Industries Corporation said that the manner in which the farmers have been insulted on the name of talks reflect that the Modi government is not at all serious to revoke the anti-farmers ordinance. He said that Modi government is hell bent on ruining the farmers by this legislation and the high headedness of the Union government was clearly reflective when none of the Ministers of the Government came for deliberations with the farmers. Mann said that what was the fun of inviting the farmers for talks when the Ministers had no time for them.
The former Punjab Minister slammed the Modi government for once again backstabbing the farmers' on this highly emotive issue. He said that Modi and his coterie are totally non-serious towards resolving this issue which can be dangerous for the country. Mr. Mann said that the Congress party led by National President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi and the Punjab government led by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh is committed for supporting the farmers and no stone was being left unturned for this noble cause.
The Chairman of Punjab Agro Industries Corporation said that the Congress party would extend fulsome support and cooperation to the farmers in this hour of crisis. He unequivocally said that the Congress party would not rest until the this draconian and anti-farmers law was not repealed. Mann envisioned that the farmers agitation, with the support of Congress, will force the Modi government to take this law back to safeguard the interests of farmers, Aadhtiyas and farm labourers, who are the backbone of the agrarian economy of the state.
