The farmer’s protests that have been going on for months in the capital state of India are allegedly resisting BJP’s efforts.
As per the latest reports, the Bharatiya Janata Party is reportedly facing resistance from the farmers in western Uttar Pradesh. The BJP has reportedly asked their leaders to reach out to the farmers and explain them the benefits of farm laws.
Union Minister Sanjeev Baliyan visited the Shoram Village in Muzaffarnagar but he was faced with hostility in the village. Reports suggest that there were clashes between the villagers and the supporters of the government. However, Baliyan was escorted out of the violent situation safely via his security personnel.
Dharmendra Malik from the Bharatiya Kisan Union along with the head of ‘Jawla Khap”, Sachin Chaudhary had refused to meet the Union Minister Sanjeev Baliyan. It is said that Baliyan was trying to get in touch with them after the Union Home Minister Amit Shah had requested him to meet them.
In a video message released by Sachin Chaudhary he said that the anyone from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party should not make attempts to meet him personally. He directed the BJP leaders to meet the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha and whatever the decision they make will be the final decision for all.
Sudhir Panwar from the Samajwadi party said that everything that they suspected (regarding the farmers’ agitation) has started to come true. He said that the farmers in the Wester Uttar Pradesh are upset with the Bharatiya Janata Party in an alleged attempt to divide them (farmers) in castes. He said that democracy allows everyone the right to expression and banning anyone from entering the premises is not “democratic”.
Panwar justified that the people are angry.
The BJP MLA from UP spoke to the media and said that it has become difficult for them (BJP Leaders) to reach out to the farmers. He said that he shares good bonds with the farmers and their leaders. But they have called him and asked him not to meet them as it would bitter their relationship. He further said that if Centre and the farmers union don’t come to a resolution, it’d seriously affect Centre’s win in the upcoming assembly elections.
