Opposition parties creating fear among farmers over new farm laws: Jitendra Singh

New Delhi: Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Tuesday accused the opposition parties of taking up “imaginary issues to create a false fear” among farmers and trying to “mislead” them over the new farm reform laws.
The irony is that while the common farmers are satisfied and have no apprehension, it is some politically motivated interests which have no knowledge or stake in farming that are attempting to make an issue out of it by trying to mislead the farmers, he alleged.
“It is in the interest of the farming community of India and common people at large, that all like-minded people should come out and vociferously dispel the disinformation and the malicious campaign launched by self-seeking elements,” said Singh, the Minister of State for Personnel.
He launched a campaign from his Lok Sabha constituency of Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir in support of the farm laws brought in by the Narendra Modi government, and against “disinformation being spread by the Congress”.
According to a Personnel Ministry statement, Singh addressed party workers, sarpanches and Block Development Council (BDC) chairmen from the border villages and other areas of Kathua and Udhampur districts.
