PM Modi Won’t Be Allowed To Enter State: Tamil Nadu Farmers
Chennai: Tamil Nadu All Farmers’ Association coordination committee warned that they would not allow Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enter Tamil Nadu if he does not permit farmers to enter Delhi and restore, water and electricity connection to the farmers who are agitating on Delhi border.
PM Modi is believed to have agreed to visit the state later in February to inaugurate several projects and is also likely to address an election rally.
“If the Prime Minister does not permit the farmers to enter Delhi, the farmers of Tamil Nadu shall not allow him to visit the state,” committee president PR Pandian was quoted as saying by IANS. Pandian’s reaction came on the Centre’s decision to ‘disconnect water and electricity supply’ to the farmers agitating against the three farm laws.
He also asked for the ‘barbed wires’ and barricades to be removed immediately.
“This is high time PM Modi should stop harassing farmers who voted for him in the past,” he said.
Pandian demanded the withdrawal of the three contentious farm laws and accused the PM of siding with corporates rather than helping farmers.
