Rahul Gandhi attacked PM Modi demanding that he address in parliament, demands like sacking of Ajay Mishra, compensation for “martyred” farmers, “false cases against Satyagrahis”, law on MSP, etc.
New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Union government over protesting farmers’ demand on compensation for kin of protestors who died in the year-long agitation against contentious agrarian laws.
Addressing a press conference, Rahul Gandhi said: “A question was asked in Parliament whether government proposes to provide financial assistance to the kin of farmers who died during the farmers’ agitation. Ministry answers that the Ministry of Agriculture has no record in the matter and hence the question doesn’t arise”.
“We have 403 people who government of Punjab has compensated Rs 5 Lakhs each and has given jobs to 152. We also have a list of 100 names from other states and a third list which is public info of names that can easily be verified. But government says that such a list does not exist,” the Wayanad MP added, as quoted by news agency ANI.
