With the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation elections
around the corner, the political rift between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government continues. In a recent statement, the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) coalition government partners stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to repeal the three farm laws was a victory of farmer's unity and their agitation over arrogance.
The Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray further stated that it is a perfect example of what heights a common man can go. “It is always suggested that the Union Government should always hold talks with different parties and take their opinions into consideration, so that afterward they need not face any kind of embarrassments and thoughts like it did today,” taking a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
Supporting the decision, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar stated that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had to take this decision as it feared the consequences it may result in mainly the backlash in the upcoming elections in two main states Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
He further slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party
(BJP), stated that the protest by farmers which went on for about 1 year will not be forgotten. He further added that without any due discussion the government had to take this step, so indeed this is the result. With this ahead, the Shiv Sena
Spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut stated that if the three farmer laws would have been repealed a year earlier, many lives would have been saved till now.
“The time central government passed the three farm laws, and showed its apathy towards not taking them back had cost the lives of more than 400 farmers with heart attacks or suicides, but though at the end the farmers won,” stated Shiv Sena Spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut.
