With Bahujan Samaj Party having only one MLA in the state assembly, party chief Mayawati has taken to Twitter to raise issues during the on-going monsoon session of the UP legislature.
Continuing her tweets, former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati, has drawn the attention of the Centre and the Yogi Adityanath government to farmers and agriculture with three tweets on Thursday.
The BSP supremo said that despite India being an agrarian country, the government's very little attention towards agriculture and farmers' interest had always been a cause of great concern.
She said that now not getting a fair price for their produce, huge arrears of sugarcane farmers and loss of livestock etc. are plaguing rural India and the government should pay immediate attention to this.
The BSP chief said as the Uttar Pradesh government had accepted in the assembly that the sugarcane farmers of the state had huge arrears, hence the government should take strict steps to ensure payment of these arrears as soon as possible, while fulfilling its responsibility.
She said the death of innumerable domestic animals in the grip of lumpy virus disease in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh had put poor rural India in a new trouble.
The BSP chief said livestock was the backbone of self-sufficient rural life and for this reason the governments of other states along with the government of Uttar Pradesh must provide proper financial help to the affected people.
Mayawati had earlier targeted the Samajwadi Party, the main opposition party in Uttar Pradesh. She said that the secular forces of UP voted for the Samajwadi Party and made it the main opposition party against the extreme casteist, communal and anti-public policies of the BJP, but this party had failed to give a tough fight to the BJP
