PM should fulfill his pre-2014 promises to farmers: Cong

New Delhi, Feb 20 (UNI) The Congress on Tuesday reminded Prime Minister Narendra Modi of his April 2014 promises made to the farmers where he had strongly advocated MSP.
Addressing a press conference at the AICC headquarters here today, party leader Pawan Khera said, the farmers are demanding only what Modi had been seeking for them ten years ago.
He said Chief Minister Modi is the Prime Minister’s worst critic, and Modi as Prime Minister is opposing what he demanded and supported as the Chief Minister of Gujarat.
Khera also condemned the attempts to malign the farmers to the extent of terming them as “anti-nationals”.
The Congress leader criticized the government's directive for suspending various social media handles of the farmers and also suspending the internet services to prevent the spread of messages.
He suggested that if the rumour mongering had really to be prevented, then the BJP should first close its IT cell which is infamous for spreading all sorts of rumours.
Khera questioned the sincerity of the government in resolving the farmers’ issue pointing out how the group of ministers was making the farmer leaders wait for hours together.

Reiterating his party’s commitment to farmers that the Congress government will bring in legal guarantee for the MSP once it forms the government, the party urged the Prime Minister to utilise the remaining few months of his government to concede the farmers’ demands.
