Vastavam web: TDP National General Secretary Nara Lokesh on Wednesday paid rich tributes to former Prime Minister Charan Singh and recalled the departed leader’s outstanding service to the country’s farmers during his long political career in those days. Lokesh said that it has been a longstanding tradition to celebrate Charan Singh’s birthday as the National Farmers’ Day all over the country.
In a statement here, Nara Lokesh deplored that the Jagan government had not hesitated to tarnish the memory of such a national level leader by observing the Farmers’ Day on the YSR birthday instead of Charan Singh’s birthday. It was a great dishonour to the former Prime Minister who had filled new light in the lives of the farmers. Lokesh slammed the ruling YSRCP for creating such worse situations in the agriculture sector that farmers’ suicides were being reported in the State on a daily basis. No helping hand was being given to the farmers either in subsidy seed or fertiliser or inputs.
Stating that the farmers would remain the backbone of the country for their toil and sacrifice, Lokesh said that the TDP would stand by the side of the farmers through all their ups and downs. He extended his heartfelt wishes for the farmers on the National Farmers’ Day celebrations.
