New Delhi, January 9
While agitating Punjab/Haryana farmers hold the fort at Delhi borders, BJP president JP Nadda today launched his party’s mega farmers’ outreach in poll-bound West Bengal with the “Ek Mutthi Chawal Sangrah”, a statewide door-to-door rice-collection campaign, from the Jagadanandapur village in Bardhaman district, which is also known as the “rice bowl” of the state.
Nadda said the campaign is aimed at reasserting the party and government’s commitment towards the growth and prosperity of farmers. Nadda attacked CM Mamata Banerjee for “blocking” Central schemes meant for farmers, accusations that were countered by TMC leaders point by point.
