BJP to raise farmers' issue in Bihar, attack Nitish govt over Buxar violence

Patna: Union Home Minister Amit Shah will reach Patna on February 22 to participate in the Kisan Sammelan organized by the Bihar unit of the BJP. This Kisan Sammelan of BJP is being organized on the occasion of the birth anniversary of monk and farmer leader Swami Sahajanand Saraswati. BJP's Bihar unit chief Sanjay Jaiswal and Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Thakur said in a joint press conference that Shah would attend the party's Kisan Sammelan on February 22.

Jaiswal has dismissed speculations that the birth anniversary of Swami Sahajanand Saraswati is being celebrated as a strategy to consolidate the party's upper caste support base. He said, 'Swami Sahajanand Saraswati's contribution has been accepted by historians all over the world. Please don't see it from any narrow point of view. Referring to the Buxar violence, BJP leaders also termed Bihar CM Nitish Kumar as an "anti-farmer". Let us tell you that on January 11 in Buxar, the Bihar police lathi-charged the farmers who were protesting demanding compensation for the land acquired for the thermal power project.

He alleged that when CM Nitish recently went to Buxar during the 'Samadhan Yatra', he did not even think it appropriate to meet the affected farmers. Swami Sahajanand Saraswati was born in 1889 in UP. He had established an ashram in Bihta, Bihar where he was active in resolving the problems of the farmers.
