Priyanka met the workers

Porters told him about his livelihood issues and Priyanka promised to help in all possible ways on it. Priyanka then boarded the train to Lalitpur. Priyanka wants to understand their problems from the farmers in Lalitpur.

The SP, BSP and farmers’ unions were also involved in the siege of the government
Farmers’ protests against fertilizers in the district after the Lakhimpur incident are becoming an embarrassment to the government. In the case of fertilizers, SPs, BSPs as well as farmers’ unions are also trying to surround the government politically. On Thursday, the SP state general secretary visited the families of the deceased farmers.

Farmers who had suffered losses with the kharif crop had hoped that the rabi crop would do well this time, but their hopes were dashed by the lack of DAP before sowing. Food and water are also being distributed at the center to farmers staying at the fertilizer shops from morning till night. At the same time the women also left Chauka Chulha and climbed into the line. Although the government provided financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh for the death of a farmer in line for fertilizer, the SP and BSP have heated up the matter.

BKU leader Rakesh Tikait’s arrival has been postponed
BSP chief Mayawati tweeted about the death of farmers in Bundelkhand, expressing the party’s intentions. District President Dayaram Ahirwar said the onus was on the administration to resolve the Annadhata issue. Farmers’ unions are also protesting here. On Friday, the administration was alerted as soon as the three-day program of BKU leader Rakesh Tikait came to light, but was relieved with the news that his program was canceled late on Thursday evening.

An upset farmer committed suicide by hanging himself due to lack of fertilizer
Two farmers were killed in a fight for fertilizer in Lalitpur. A farmer commits suicide by hanging. The family members allege that he committed suicide due to severe depression due to lack of fertilizer. Authorities denied the allegations, however. At the same time, a farmer who had been queuing for three days for fertilizer died the day before. Farmers are furious over the two incidents.
