Food and Public Distribution and a member of the People’s Party, as saying that the recently intensified protests of peasants in the country, China and Pakistan were forced to China and Pakistan, claiming that It is the “behind-the-scenes driver” of farmers’ protests in India.
According to reports, Danwei talked about farmers’ protests at the inauguration of a health center in Maharashtra, India, on the 9th local time, and began to blame China and Pakistan.
Without any basis, Danvi claimed: “The ongoing uproar is not a peasant’s problem. China and Pakistan are behind the scenes. He continued, but “These efforts have not succeeded, and farmers are now told that they will face losses. This is a conspiracy of other countries.
However, the report said that Danvi did not elaborate on the grounds on which he accused China and Pakistan of being the “behind-the-scenes driver” of the Indian peasant protest.
While accusing China and Pakistan, Danvi also defended that Modi was the prime minister of Indian farmers and that any decision would not be detrimental to the farmers.
However, Danvi’s above remarks were soon rudely criticized by other political parties in India.
According to the report, Arvind Sawant, spokesman of the Maharashtra party Shiva Army, “slamed” Danvi for dragging China and Pakistan into the riots caused by domestic farmer protests in India and accused Danvi of losing his mind.
Shavant said that the BJP leader lost his mind because they (the BJP) lost influence in Maharashtra. “They don’t know what they are talking about.”
Indian farmers have protested in the capital New Delhi since November 26 to oppose the three government bills related to agricultural reform, namely, the Agricultural Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, the Farmers (Authorization and Protection) Price Guarantee Agreement and the Agricultural Services Act, and the Basic Commodities (Amendment) Act. )
bill, requiring the government to continue to maintain the current guaranteed “minimum purchase price” system. Indian Prime Minister Modi has repeatedly called on farmers in this regard, guaranteeing that “these historic bills” will benefit farmers, because they will cut off the interests of middlemen and allow farmers to freely sell products on more profitable platforms.
But the farmers who participated in the protests did not seem to buy it, and the demonstration intensified. According to the Hindustan Times, farmers in Maharashtra also held large-scale protests to show “solidarity” with protesters in New Delhi.
