BJP favouring wealthy people over farmers: Akhilesh

LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday accused the BJP of favouring wealthy people over farmers.

In a Hindi tweet, Akhilesh Yadav said, “The biggest problem with the BJP Government is that it does not consider itself as a public representative (jan pratinidhi) but as wealth representative (dhan pratinidhi).”

Hence, for the wealthy people, it is putting farmers’ interest at stake, he said, adding that the BJP has forgotten that those whom it is causing harm constitute two-third population of the country and never accept defeat.

Earlier too, the Samajwadi Party chief had accused the BJP of giving importance to its “capitalist friends” and said the farmers’ protest against the new agriculture laws is an example of the Government’s “failure”. (AGENCIES)
