Nadda slams opposition parties over criticism of new farm laws; says they suggested reforms

Chennai, Jan 14 (PTI) BJP president J P Nadda
on Thursday mounted a scathing attack on opposition parties
over the new Central farm laws, saying though they had
earlier promised agricultural reforms, they were now
supporting those agitating against the Centre on the matter.

The BJP chief”s comments here came on a day when
Congress president Rahul Gandhi in Madurai slammed the Centre
over the contentious legislations, backing the farmers and
saying that the union government will be “forced” to repeal
the laws in the face of ryots” stiff resistance.

In his address at the 51st anniversary of Tamil
magazine ”Thughlaq”, Nadda said the opposition parties lacked
the political will and courage to take bold decisions unlike
Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the interest of the nation.

The opposition parties had assured in their own
manifestos that farming reforms will be brought in, he said
without naming anyone.

“They themselves wrote that APMC (Agricultural
Produce Marketing committees) have to go or needs changes.
They mentioned that Essential Commodities Act is an age-old
law that needs to be amended,” he said.

Nadda added that politics appeared so important to
the opposition parties that they seemed to compromise on
issues concerning the nation.

Their sole objective it appears is to support those
who want to agitate against the Centre on the farm laws.

“They do not have the political will and courage to
take decisions. It is Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has
the will and courage to take bold decisions, but now they”re
trying to politicise the issue and are supporting the people
who want to agitate,” Nadda charged.

Contrastingly, the Prime Minister strived in the
interest of the nation and earned the appreciation for his
pro-people initiatives and this reflected in the electoral
victories BJP secured recently in various parts of the
country, he said.

“We had four seats in Greater Hyderabad Municipal
Corporation, but now we have 48 seats. We have consistently
performed well across the country,” the BJP chief said,
adding the party even won the Dubbak Assembly bypolls in
Telangana last year.

Likewise, in Madhya Pradesh, BJP secured 22 seats out
of 28 assembly seats in the bypolls, while doing exceedingly
well in Uttar Pradesh, besides winning hands down in
Rajasthan Zilla Parishad elections.

The people were with Modi, he added. PTI JSP SA BN
