New Delhi : Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Majeed Memon on Sunday claimed that his party chief Sharad Pawar knows the pulse of the farmers and understands their problems.
“I think whether it is Rahul Gandhi, Narendra Modi ji or anybody else, nobody would know the problems of farmers as well as our leader Sharad Pawar because he is a farmers leader he knows the pulse of the famers, he himself is a man from farmer’s family,” Memon told ANI here. “I think Sharad Pawar ji’s suggestion must be seriously considered,” he added when asked to comment on the ‘Kisan Samman Rally’ being organised by the Congress Party at the Ramlila Ground here.
Commenting on the Land Acquisition Bill, Memon said that it does not take full care of the interests of farmers and poor land owners. The NCP leader further said it was the government’s duty to ensure that the problems of farmers are addressed with highest priority. “You can’t just turn to industries and corporates, you will have to see the ground reality that it is the farmers on the strength of whom this nation stands,” he added.
