   Date :29-May-2024

CONGRESS National President Mallikarjun Kharge said on Tuesday that if the I.N.D.I.A. bloc comes to power at the Centre, they will exclude agricultural equipment from the GST ambit. Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, Kharge targeted PM Modi-led BJP Government at the centre and said that when farmers tried to enter Delhi to put forward their demands, tear gas shells were fired at them. “Punjab and Haryana, despite having less land geographically, produce the most in the entire country.
The country gets food from these two States. The farmers here think that their prices should be good and fair according to the MSP. Farmers agitated (2020-21) and put forward their demands before the BJP Government. But still, the Government did not agree. Tear gas shells were fired at them. The farmer remained sitting on the streets for the whole year,” Kharge said. “We will give legal guarantee to MSP which is one of our five Nyay (Justice),” he added. The Congress President also mentioned that their Government will also provide 10 kg of free grains to the people in country.
