Varun Gandhi Calls For Rethink On India’s Agriculture Policies

New Delhi: Parliamentarian Varun Gandhi, who was axed from the BJP’s National Executive after he spoke on the farmers’ behalf and demanded justice for those killed in UP’s Lakhimpur Kheri — has called for a “rethink” of India’s agriculture policies.

The Lok Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh’s Pilibhit tweeted a video of a Lakhimpur farmer saying he had been forced to burn his paddy crop as it was unsold for 15 days, reported NDTV.

“A farmer from Uttar Pradesh — Samodh Singh — was going from mandi (wholesale market) to mandi for 15 days trying to sell his crop. After failing to do so, in desperation, he burned his entire crop,” Varun Gandhi wrote while sharing the video.

The video shows a man pouring kerosene on his crop and, despite some trying to hold him back, he sets fire to the whole thing.

“What has this system reduced farmers to? We need to rethink our agriculture policy,” Gandhi said.
