Jaipur, December 26
Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) convener and Nagaur MP Hanuman Beniwal on Saturday announced a split from the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) over the Centre’s new farm laws.
“I am not stuck with Fevicol with the NDA. Today, I separate myself from the NDA,” Beniwal said while addressing a farmers’ rally in Shahjahanpur in Alwar district.
On Friday, Beniwal had announced a march to Delhi in support of farmers organisations holding a protest against the contentious laws.
Farmers from Rajasthan have been protesting in Shahjhanpur near the Rajasthan-Haryana border on the Jaipur-Delhi highway for 14 days.
Beniwal claimed that his coronavirus test was “fudged to keep him out of the Lok Sabha when the three farm laws were passed”.
“Had I been there I would have torn the three laws,” he said, claiming that he has left NDA and would also resign from Lok Sabha if need be. TNS/PTI
