LUCKNOW: BSP chief Mayawati has announced support to the farmers’ agitation on May 26, saying that it is high time the Centre calls them for talks and finds a solution to end the impasse. She has said that till now the government has only been in conflict with the farmers’ stand as a result of which the situation in states neighbouring Delhi is very delicate.
“Farmers continue to protest against the three new farm laws even during this time of the pandemic. The BSP will support them in their decision to hold a protest on May 26 to mark the six months of their agitation. The Centre needs to be more sympathetic towards them,” said the former UP chief minister.
She added that because the Centre’s attitude towards the farmers had largely been confrontational, the resultant deadlock had led to tension in states adjoining Delhi. “The BSP once again appeals to the Centre to engage with farmers and find a solution at the earliest,” Mayawati added.
