BJP won’t return to power if farmers’ demands are not met: Satya Pal Malik

Jhunjhunu, Oct 18 : Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik launched an attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government over the farmers’ agitation, and said it would not return to power if the demands of the farmers are not met.
Speaking to local reporters at an event in Jhunjhunu of Rajasthan on Sunday, Malik said, “If the demands of the farmers are not met, then this government won’t return to power”.
“They have been sitting here for months, government should resolve the issue,” Malik said.
Malik, a jat leader from western Uttar Pradesh, has supported the farmers protests earlier as well. The veteran, who has earlier served as Governor in Jammu and Kashmir and Bihar, said BJP leaders are not being allowed inside many villages.
“I am from Meerut. In my area, no BJP leader can enter any village. In Meerut, in Muzzafarnagar, in Baghpat, they can’t enter,” he told reporters.
Asked if he would quit his post as Governor over the issue, he said, “When needed, I would quit my post as well… But for now I have fought with the Prime Minister, Home Minister, everyone. I have told everyone that you are doing wrong, don’t do this,” he said.
“Here, if the government legally guarantees MSP, then this will be resolved. The farmers can leave the issue of the three bills because the Supreme Court has put it on hold. There is only one thing, you are not even doing that. Why… without MSP nothing will happen,”
