PM Narendra Modi’s speech in Rajya Sabha on Monday, in his reply to the Motion of Thanks on President Ram Nath Kovind’s address in the Budget session, lacked concern, coherence and was full of contradictions.
While he hailed Sikhs on one hand, he denounced their protest against the farm laws on the other.
The PM, who famously promised to double the farmers’ income by 2022, neither uttered a single word on farmers’ death during the ongoing agitation nor on whether his government will repeal the laws or not.
More than 150 farmers have died over the last two months at Delhi’s borders, where they have been camping to demand a repeal of the farm laws. Eleven rounds of talks between the farmers and the government have failed to yield any result.
