BJP govt fails to solve the problems of farmer: Kejriwal

Buldhana: Aam Admi party(AAP) chief Arvind Kehriwal never leaves a chance to take a dig on the ruling BJP party. Kejriwal was present at Sindhkhedraja here on the occasion of Jijabai’s birth anniversary. Kejriwal was addressing a public meeting where he pointed out the party for its failure to solve the problems of farmers in the state.

Adding on to the issue, he said that the government had made many promises but had done nothing so far. He also said Maharashtra farmers were committing suicides owing to agrarian crisis and the state has done little to provide them relief.

“The condition of farmers in Maharashtra is pathetic. When crops failed in Delhi, we granted compensation of Rs50,000 a hectare to farmers,” he said, adding that it was the first time since independence that such a huge compensation was given to farmers.

Kejriwal even went on to allege that the BJP-RSS supporters attacked Dalits at Koregaon Bhima, leading to caste tensions.

He also alleged that the BJP in Maharashtra had “crushed” the dreams of social reformer couple Mahatma Phule and Savitribai Phule, as well as that of Shivaji.

The AAP leader pointed out that when he became the chief minister of Delhi three years ago, the condition of the government schools was bad in the national capital.
