NEW DELHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday alleged that the Congress Party is responsible for the pitiable condition of the farmers in the country and said that it was insulting the farming community with its move to organise a ‘Kisan Mazdoor Samman Rally’.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra dubbed the grand old party as ‘land grabbers’.

“Rahul Gandhi today speaks about the farmers and Land Acquisition. We should remind him of the fact that those who are land grabbers of farmers should not speak about Land Acquisition,” Patra told ANI.

“Today Rahul Gandhi and the Congress is talking of a ‘Kisan Samman Rally’. Did the Congress Party think of the farmers and the agriculturalists all these 65 years in rule? Had the Congress Party given an iota of thought towards the welfare of the farmers of India, then the conditions of the farmers of this country would not have been this pitiable,” he added.

Patra further said the Congress vice-president grabbed 65 acres of poor farmers land in his parliamentary constituency Amethi.

The Congress Party will organize a 'Kisan Mazdoor Samman Rally' today at the Ramlila Ground to honour farmers and party workers for forcing the NDA Government to withdraw its land ordinance.
