Agriculture reforms to come back? Rahul Gandhi threaten government

New Delhi: Controversy has arisen due to the statement of Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. From what Tomar said at the inauguration of the Agriculture Industry Exhibition in Nagpur on Saturday, it seems that in the coming time, the Modi government can bring back the agriculture law again with some changes.

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar in Nagpur said, "We had brought agriculture law but some people did not like it. But that was a big improvement after 70 years of independence. It was progressing under the leadership of Narendra Modi ji. But the government is not disappointed. We have taken a step back, will move forward again because the farmer of India is the backbone of this country. When our backbone is strong then surely the country will be strong.

When Tomar was saying this in the program, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari was also present. Tomar said that there is a need for massive investment in the agriculture sector. Tomar said that private investment came to other sectors, which created employment and increased the contribution of these industries to the GDP. Agriculture sector is so big but it has not got this kind of opportunity.

 Narendra Singh Tomar said that there is a need for private investment in agriculture so that godowns and cold stores can be built in villages.


On this statement of Narendra Tomar, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tweeted and said, "The Agriculture Minister of the country has insulted Modi's apology - it is highly condemnable. If again anti-agriculture steps are taken forward, then again there will be Annadata Satyagraha. They have been defeated earlier and will be defeated again.
