New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Varun Gandhi on October 14, 2021, posted a short clip of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s 1980 speech on Twitter to give a message to the Narendra Modi government over ongoing farmer agitation.
BJP MP Gandhi is fiercely supporting the farmers’ agitation against the three agriculture laws of the Modi government.
The clip shows Vajpayee extending his support to farmers and warning the then Indira Gandhi government against their repression.
Gandhi tweeted, ‘Wise words from a leader with a big heart…’
In the video clip, Vajpayee can be heard telling a gathering that farmers cannot be intimidated.
Vajpayee says, “If the government suppresses (farmers), abuses laws, and suppresses peaceful agitation, we will not hesitate to join the farmers’ struggle and stand with them.”
Gandhi has demanded strict action against those responsible for the deaths of four farmers in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri, who were allegedly crushed by cars belonging to BJP leaders. Gandhi was recently removed from the BJP’s national executive. This was seen as the displeasure of the party leadership with Gandhi. (PW News)
