Agartala, June 17: Bharatiya Jata Party has accused ruling CPI(M) in Tripura for unlashing a mischievous campaign against the Centre, misguiding the farming community and depriving them of their legitimate facilities and opportunities.
The BJP Kishan Morcha has decided to launch an agitation to protest against such mischief and demanding that all the facilities extended by the central government must be made available to the farmers of this state. Subal Bhowmik, vice-president of the BJP state committee said the Centre has slashed the price of fertilizers of different type from Rs 2.50 to Rs 5 per kg and arranged Neem coating of the Urea to prevent smuggling of the fertilizer.
He said all these were done, so that, the farmers can afford to use these and farm productions are increased which will ensure a growth in their income. But the CPI(M) government in Tripura is conspiring so that all these benefits don’t reach the farmers.
Addressing a district level farmers convention organized by the Morcha at Baikhora under Santir Bazar sub-division in South Tripura he said the CPI(M)’s policy is to keep people dependent on the government, so that, they can be politically exploited.
He said due to the negative policy of this government many of our agriculturists had to shift to other profession and a majority of them has turned into MGNREGA laborers. The farming community has lost its dignity due to CPI(M)’s policy to keep them suppressed.
He said the centre has taken steps to extend scope for agricultural loan but here the real farmers are not getting it. Instead, a section of CPI(M) cadres are grabbing all the benefits with fake identity.
He said large scale corruptions are going on in the me of supply paddy seeds through the government stores. Printing marks of outside companies’ on the sacks local seeds are being distributed which are giving low yield causing heavy loss to the farmers.
