Rakesh Tikait defamed farmers by politicising issues for his self-interest: BJP

New Delhi, Sep 6: A day after the Kisan Mahapanchayat in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar, the BJP said Bhartiya kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait has defamed farmers by politicising the issue for his self-interest.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Kisan Morcha national president and Lok Sabha member from Fatehpur Sikri, Rajkumar Chahar told IANS that he was fulfilling his political ambition by putting guns on farmers’ shoulders.

Chahar claimed that most of the participants of the event were political workers of the Samajwadi Party (SP), Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) and other political parties.

“Majority of participants of yesterday’s event were workers of the SP, RLD and other political parties, while farmers stayed away from mahapanchayat. All the so-called leaders did not speak about the issues concerning farmers or they earlier used to raise like MSP as they also realize that their lies have been exposed,” Chahar said.

He alleged that Tikait used farmers to fulfill his political ambition with support of some political parties who are misleading everyone over the new farm laws.

He further stated that it was not a mahapanchayat but a political rally organised with an eye on the next year’s Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.

“Tikait knows what mahapanchayat means. In mahapanchayat everyone holds a ‘charcha’ (discussion) over issues but in yesterday’s event it was a rally in which leaders gave political speeches,” he said.

Chahar challenged Tikait and other farmers leaders to organise a real panchayat by calling genuine farmers and agriculture experts to discuss the new farm laws.

“They should organise a panchayat by calling genuine farmers and experts for a serious discussion on new farm laws. But they will not do this as the new farm laws have been implemented to benefit the farmers and such discussion will expose them. These so-called farmer leaders are doing politics and they are least interested in the welfare of farmers,” Chahar said.

Chahar further alleged that Tikait has communalised the farmer protest by chanting communal slogans to appease a particular community.

“While making a particular happy by raising a religious slogan, why Tikait did not ask the participants to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogan,” the BJP Kishan Morcha national president said.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) had organised a kisan mahapanchayat on Sunday at the Government Inter College ground in Muzaffarnagar. Farmers across the country were said to have come together under the banner of the SKM. The Samajwadi Party (SP), Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) and other political parties had extended their support to the mahapanchayat.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
