With an eye fixed on the upcoming bypolls on eight seats in Gujarat, Union Minister of State for Panchayati Raj, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Parshottam Rupala, arrived in Vadodara on Tuesday to satisfy BJP leaders. Karjan Assembly constituency in Vadodara district is slated to go for bypolls on November 3.
Rupala attacked the Opposition and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi over “spreading lies and deceptive” farmers and said that the BJP will search votes within the upcoming elections on the idea of the farmer’s Bills.
In his interplay with mediapersons on the BJP metropolis unit workplace, Rupala stated, “The BJP has at all times thought of farmers, in contrast to Rahul Gandhi and the Congress that solely take pleasure in political stunts. The Bills will empower farmers and never take something away from them as claimed by Opposition events. The goal is to double the earnings of farmers and Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) markets is not going to shut down.”
Responding to questions raised by reporters, he added, “The Bills are for the betterment and progress of the farmers. In reality, the celebration has determined to make use of the Bills as a part of our marketing campaign technique for the upcoming bypolls in proper seats in Gujarat in addition to the Bihar state Assembly elections.”
