Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav: Government Treating Farmers As Enemies
Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Friday said the arrogance of power has made the government in New Delhi "blind and deaf" to the suffering of millions of farmers in the country and it is treating them as "enemies".
The government doesn't realise that these humble farmers also have the power to oust arrogant rulers, he said.
Mr Yadav was addressing a ''Kisan Mahapanchayat'' organised by his party at Tappal in support of the ongoing farmers'' agitation against the centre's three new agricultural laws.
The arrogance of power has made the government sitting in New Delhi "blind and deaf" to the suffering of millions of farmers in the country, the SP leader told the gathering.
"More than 200 farmers have lost their lives during the agitation but the Modi government is still treating them as if they are enemies at the borders of the country and building barriers," Mr Yadav said.
"The government is oblivious to the fact that these humble farmers have the power to remove arrogant rulers from the seat of power," he said.
