They Don’t Know What They Want, Says Hema Malini On Farmers’ Protests
New Delhi: BJP MP from Mathura Hema Malini has said that farmers don’t know what they want. Toeing the party line that the ongoing protest by the farmers has been instigated by “vested interests”, she also referred to the vandalism of mobile towers in Punjab and said the state has suffered a lot of losses owing to the protests.
“Punjab has suffered a lot of losses. It was not nice to see them (farmers) vandalise towers. The government has called them for talks repeatedly but they don’t even have an agenda,” she was quoted as saying by ANI. The he BJP MP also welcomed the stay on the implementation of the Centre’s farm laws saying that this is likely to calm the situation.
“It is good that the Supreme Court has stayed the laws. This will hopefully calm the situation. Farmers are not willing to come to a consensus even after so many talks. They do not even know what they want and what is the problem with the farm laws. This means that they are doing this because someone asked them to do it,” Hema Malini, was quoted as saying by ANI.
