New Delhi, July 21: The Congress on Friday walked out of the Lok Sabha, accusing the government of not taking adequate steps to address the concerns of farmers. The party also slammed Prime Minister rendra Modi for his silence over the issue. “Be it Madhya Pradesh or Maharashtra, farmers across the country are on the streets. The issue was discussed in the House but we didn’t get a response from the Prime Minister,” Congress member Deepender Singh Hooda said during Zero Hour. He said that during the discussion the Centre did not make it clear whether it intended to implement recommendations made by the M.S. Swamithan Commission or not. He said the Bharatiya Jata Party had promised in its election campaign of 2014 to implement the Commission’s recommendations. (IANS)
