MATHURA: President of Rashtriya Kisan Manch Shekhar Dixit on Saturday expressed resentment over the government's "indifferent attitude" towards the farmers' agitation against three new farm laws.

"Step-motherly treatment being given to farmers may become counterproductive as the farmers know how to withdraw support to the BJP-led government," he said while talking to reporters here.
