Lucknow: A day after the violence erupted during a farmers' tractor parade in different parts of the national capital Delhi on Tuesday, Samajwadi Party chief and former Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav has attacked the BJP. He alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is primarily responsible for the violence that erupted in Delhi.
In a tweet from the official Twitter handle, Akhilesh Yadav said that the way the BJP government has consistently neglected, humiliated and blamed the farmers. He has played a decisive role in raging the resentment of the farmers. The BJP is primarily responsible for the situation that has been created now. He should immediately withdraw the agricultural laws, taking moral responsibility for it.
Akhilesh had joined a tractor rally parade at Saifai in Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday, showing solidarity with farmers agitating against new agricultural laws on Delhi boundaries. Delhi police said that more than 300 policemen were injured in the attack by agitating farmers during the tractor parade on Tuesday. A total of 22 FIR have been lodged in various police stations of Delhi in connection with the violence during the tractor rally.
