Indian Farmers Union leader Rakesh Tikait has alleged, ‘The biggest lie in Modi ji’s address is that sugarcane farmers 16 Crores are being helped. This help is not due to the sugar mill farmers owed it to the sugar mill. If the government is giving it, then sugar mills are getting help, Not the farmer. On the other hand, if the government had given it as an incentive, the farmer would have benefited. Modi ji is talking about a structure for storage, but the appeal is being made to the corporate. This means that the government is promoting agri business, not farmers. Privatization is being encouraged in farming.‘
Tikait continued, ‘After the privatization of Navratna companies, the Modi government is now eyeing the privatization of agriculture. With this, the discussion with the farmers is wrong because today there was no discussion with the farmers organizations. The claim of implementing the Swaminathan Commission report is a lie. Swaminathan’s recommendation in cost C2 + 50% Have to add. But the government changed the formula A2 + FL Have given. Due to which the rights of farmers are being killed. Us 500 Not begging for rupee month, need support price.
Farmer leader says, ‘Urea 5 Kg weight reduced due to loss of farmer. Honey farmer is opposing bio-converted mustard, but Modi government is moving forward. What will be the benefit of farmers from agricultural reform, it was not even mentioned in the address today.‘
