Togadia urges Centre to focus on cross-border attacks, ryots’ suicides

AURANGABAD, Maharashtra :  Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) International working president and senior leader Dr Pravin Togadia today asked the Central Government to concentrate on burning issues being faced by country like Pakistan’s continuous attacks and problems crippling Kashmir.
Mr Togdia, who is on a tour to Jalgaon and Aurangabad, said here that the four major issues– farmers’ suicides, unemployment, problems in Kashmir and Pakistan’s continuous attempt to attack on border and targeting Indian Jawans — needed to be addressed by the Government rather than making more discussion on Triple Talaq issue, he said.
When asked about the functioning of present Narendra Modi Government at the Centre,  Mr Togadia declined to comment but raised few major issues which the Government has  to look into on priority basis for the welfare of the countrymen.
Expressing  serious concern over the continuous farmers’ suicides in the country,  he further said near about 52  per cent farmers in the country are debt-ridden and are taking extreme steps. As many as  12,000 farmers across  the country commit suicide every year which is a major issue  before the country.
The Union Government should urgently call All India Farmers Conference in which all political parties should participate and prepare action plan to make the farmers debt-free.
Dr Togadia  further said that the Government should adopt a three-point action plan, including proper price of agriculture produce to farmers, priority to water in agriculture sector and farmers’ debt should be taken care of, Dr Togadia added. (AGENCIES)
