New Delhi, Sep 29 (UNI) Attacking the main opposition party Congress over differing from the new Farmer Acts, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday said the grand old party has now disconnected from the public and forgotten its own promises.
Being asked about Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi and leader Rahul Gandhi opposing the Bills, which were recently passed in Parliament, Mr Javadekar said, ‘I would not say much about their opposition. Congress is a desperate and disappointed party, and is now cut-off from public, has forgotten its own promises made to people, and has also forgotten what their own PM (Dr Manmohan SIngh) had said.’
Accusing the Congress of ‘taking the side of brokers,’ Mr Javadekar said the new laws have now come into force.
The Minimum Support Price has already been announced and the procurement at MSP is going on at a fast pace, while the farmers are selling their paddy, the Union Minister pointed out.
He said that every year, the farmers of Punjab and Haryana, who go to the Mandi and sell their produce, will do the same. ‘Sometimes, action speaks louder than words. I think this is more effective,’
