“The BJP govt will come in West Bengal”: JP Nadda

News Desk: Addressing a public gathering at Bardhaman, BJP national president JP Nadda mocked Mamata Banerjee for agreeing to implement PM Kisan Yojna only after realising that her party is fast losing ground among the farmers in the state. He was accompanied by Bengal BJP leaders including state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh.

Nadda said “I heard that Mamata didi has written a letter to PM saying that she wants to join the PM’s Kisan Nidhi Yojna. This letter is no more required as we have started the Kisan Suraksha Yojna. The BJP govt will come in West Bengal and we will implement the Kisan Nidhi Yojna in Bengal.

We had been asking the CM to implement the policy since last year as around 70 lakh families are not getting the benefit of the scheme. 23 lakh people have informed the central government that they wanted to join but Mamata didi didn’t give permission. Now she remembers the farmers as she saw that power has gone out of her hands. No use crying over spilt milk now!” 

He added “The national agriculture market has joined with the 17 markets of Bengal. Now in 17 markets farmers can sell their products at any cost. This has been implemented by PM Modi.

The three new farm bills give freedom to the farmers. Through this, farmers will get the correct price for their products. Farmers now can directly handle the sale of their cultivation”

The BJP’s ‘Chal Songroho’ was carried in Jagadanandapur village in Katwa. Nadda spoke with farmers to know about their condition and pasted posters of the campaign on the walls of their houses as women blew conch shells. “We are happy that he visited our houses and ate sweets offered by us. He took one fistful of rice from each household and put them in his jhola” local resident Aparna Mondal told reporters.

Nadda then had lunch in the kuccha house of another farmer Mathura Mondal. The BJP chief had a Bengali vegetarian meal comprising ‘shukto‘, ‘shak bhaja‘, fried brinjals, crispy potato fries, chutney and ‘payesh‘, cooked by Mondal’s wife. “We are happy that such a big person had lunch at our home” she said. Earlier in the day, Nadda began his day-long visit to the state by offering puja at Katwa’s centuries-old Radha Gobinda temple, which is revered by locals which involves a 6000 direct cash transfer per year in three equal tranches to farmers.
