Leaders of the Punjab unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday. After the meeting, the leaders said that the Prime Minister was more concerned about the farmers than the leaders of the Krishak Union and further demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi be fully aware of the activities related to the ongoing peasant movement related to the three new agricultural laws and the issue would be resolved soon.
In the midst of the movement, which has been going on for almost six weeks, Punjab BJP leader and former minister Surjit Kumar Giani and Harjeet Singh Grewal met Prime Minister Modi at his official residence. Gianni was appointed chairman of the farmers’ coordination committee formed by the BJP last year to discuss three agricultural bills with farmers in Punjab. These bills were not passed in Parliament. Grewal was also a member of this committee. After meeting the Prime Minister for about two hours, these BJP leaders said that the Prime Minister understands Punjab very well and they are worried about the farmers. Speaking in PTI, Grewal said, “Modi knows a lot … everything will be resolved and something good will happen.” I can’t reveal what happened during the meeting, but something good will happen … When something good goes, there’s also the fear that something might go wrong. ”
He said that the Prime Minister understands Punjab very well, he has visited the entire state and is also watching the work of the party. He said he had discussed all issues related to Punjab with the Prime Minister. “The prime minister is concerned about the farmers and the government is always ready to do something in the interest of the farmers,” he said. And concerned about the farmers … Maoist elements have entered the farmers’ movement and are not allowing the issue to be resolved. “
Asked about the agricultural law, Gianni said, “Farmers’ organizations should not be reluctant to demand the repeal of the law. The government has always been willing to do something in the interest of the farmers.” The Punjab BJP leaders met the Prime Minister on Monday, just a day after the seventh round of talks between the government and the farmers. The meeting did not resolve the stalemate. .
