BJP neglecting its manifesto too: Akhilesh

Samajwadi Party national president Akhilesh Yadav targeted the government and alleged that the BJP was neglecting its Sankalp Patra (manifesto). Non-fulfilment of promises is nothing short of corruption. Akhilesh said in his release that the condition of farmers has worsened when the BJP government came to power. Everything that is used for agriculture has become expensive and promises to provide one and a half times the cost of the farmer’s produce and doubling the farmer’s income by 2022 have become mere promises. He said that BJP is neglecting its manifesto.

He said that the prices of diesel, electricity, fertilizers, seeds, pesticides are all touching the sky. The cost of cultivation of paddy has increased by 40 percent. Plowing agriculture by tractor is also one and a half times more expensive. Now wages have become more expensive than before. Small farmers have been troubled the most due to Corona crisis, unemployment, expensive transportation. Electricity rates are the most expensive in Uttar Pradesh. Here the rate of Rs 175 per horsepower is applicable.

Akhilesh said that the condition of sugarcane farmers is very bad. The government has grossly neglected the sugarcane farmers. It is about to be five years, but the price of sugarcane has not been increased by even a single rupee. The sugar mill owners have come down completely on their arbitrariness.
