Mumbai: The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Tuesday raised a question over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Wardha as the latter had failed to visit the hailstorm-hit areas in Vidarbha.

NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik said that during Mr Modi’s regime, over three lakh farmers committed suicide across the country.

 

Mr Modi, while launching his poll campaign in Wardha on Monday, had targeted NCP chief Sharad Pawar on multiple fronts, including farmers’ suicides. He said, “We did not expect the PM to visit affected farmers, as not a single minister of the state had visited them, either.

He also pointed out that Mr Modi used to speak about farmers for 18 minutes in 2014, while in the current election, he does not even speak for two minutes about them.

“The PM has given a slogan ‘Mar Jawan, Mar Kisan’. This government has been unable to fulfill the promises and are blaming the previous government for the current state of farmers,” Mr Malik said.

 

Armed with the in-house magazine Rashtrawadi’s December 2011 edition, the NCP spokesperson said that when Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat, he had wholeheartedly praised the then Union agriculture minister Mr Pawar for the agriculture growth in Gujarat.
