Mangaluru, January 16: B Janardhan Poojary, Former union minister on Thursday January 15th addressing a press meet criticized the union government for depriving the labourers working in industries from their benefits and failure of the government to protect the interest of the working class.
Speaking about the Bharatiya Hindu Parishat formed by the Puttur block Congress he said, the association went against the principles of congress party such as follow secular principles, overcome un-touchability, and emphasize on universal development. If it is not followed such activities becomes anti-party.
Criticizing the Narendra Modi government about the recent land ordinance and accusing it for being anti-farmer, he said, “Modi government came to power with assurances of pro-people programs and everyone would be treated equally. About 75 percent of the Indian population are farmers who live in villages. All parties consider farmers as the backbone of the nation, but the Modi government is burying the farmers alive. The ordinance to quash few provisions of the act has become anti-farmer. Since farmers were committing suicide, the UPA government had passed the Land Act, but BJP came to power and now they are building a tomb for farmers, said Poojary.
He further said, BJP should treat the citizens equally and implement whatever it had assured in the past.
Poojary said, the ordinance brought about by BJP is against the interest of labour class which will affect 1.70 lakh labourers in the country.
