Jammu: Senior National Conference (NC) leader Ajay Sadhotra Monday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government at the Centre was insensitive towards the problems of the farmers.
Addressing a public meeting here at Smailpur in Marh assembly constituency to felicitate Rattan Lal Gupta and Brij Mohan Sharma on their election as president and vice president of National Conference Jammu province, Sadhotra assured the newly-elected provincial leaders that NC workers of Marh assembly constituency would always stand by the party and its leadership to mitigate the problems of the common people.
Sadhotra and Rattan Lal Gupta, who also spoke on the occasion, said the NC was committed to the welfare and upliftment of the common farmers.
“On 23 October 2021 heavy rains and hailstorm damaged the paddy and vegetable crop resulting in 100 percent loss to the farmers but to the utter surprise of the farmers, so far no compensation has been given to them,” they said. “The Kisans are disappointed and disgusted.”
