‘Leftists, tukde-tukde gang spoiling PM’s achievements using farm sector’: Giriraj Singh

Panaji: Union Minister for Animal Husbandry, Dairy and Fisheries Giriaj Singh on Saturday alleged that leftists and the ‘tukde-tukde gang’ were trying to spoil the achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the agriculture sector.

Addressing a press conference in the city, he pointed out that compared to previous United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime, there had been tremendous increase in the budgetary allocation for farm sector during the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) regime.

“Some people are trying to pin India down by misleading about the farm sector. Leftists and the ‘tukde-tukde gang’ are trying to defame Modi’s achievements in the farm sector. From 2009 to 2014 (UPA regime), the farm budget was around Rs 88,000 crore. From 2014-2020 the budgetary spending increased to more than Rs four lakh crore. It is more than a 400 per cent increase in budgetary spending,” he said.

Mr Singh said there would be growth in the procurement of seasonal crops inspite of ongoing farmers’ protest in the national capital.
