Raipur. State Congress Communications Department President Shailesh Nitin Trivedi has responded to BJP State President Vishnu Deo Sai statement. Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said, "It is unfortunate that leaders like Dr Raman Singh and Vishnu Deo Sai constantly lie on the purchase of paddy."
"Congress has done concrete work in the interest of farmers, but the BJP is making false propaganda against the government every day. After losing the 2018 assembly elections, have BJP leaders become amnesiac?" He asked.
While releasing the data on the purchase of paddy by the BJP government, President of the Communications Department of the State Congress said that "The Raman Singh government of BJP purchased an average of fifty lakh tonnes of paddy per year. The Bhupesh Baghel government has purchased 81.70 lakh metric tons at MSP (minimum support price). Thus, BJP State President Vishnu Deo Sai's statement against the Bhupesh Baghel government is an attempt to mislead the public."
"How can the BJP talk of paddy purchase? The farmers and rural voters did not support the BJP because they have understood the anti-farmer, anti-poor and anti-labour character of the BJP." he continued.
