BJP reprimands Cong for taking farmers plight to PM's doorstep
December 16, 2016  13:07
With the Congress highlighting the plight of the farming community and submitting a memorandum in this regard to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said that the grand old party that has ruled the nation for almost 60 years must introspect its action before putting the onus on others.

BJP's Siddharth Nath Singh said that the Congress has every right to raise the issue of farmers with Prime Minister Modi, but only if they introspect and realise that they themselves could not deliver on their promises made to the farming community.

"There is nothing wrong in democracy, if the opposition wishes to meet the PM and raise the issue. But when you are going to raise an issue, you have been in the government for last 60 years and in those 60 years, what have you delivered to the farmers and particularly when you talk about irrigation facilities," Singh told ANI.

"You must introspect that why after ruling India for 60 years you could not deliver. And if they have realised that they have done a mistake and they could not deliver, they have all the right to raise the issue with the Prime Minister," he added.
