A day after he appeared to defend the Narendra Modi authorities on the difficulty of farm payments, suspended Congress chief Sanjay Jha instructed Congress to cease the “mindless obsession” of opposing the prime minister.
Jha, who was sacked from the social gathering in July for “anti-party activities” and “breach of discipline”, in a tweet on Saturday morning stated, “Dear Fellow Congress-people, One must oppose PM Modi whenever justified; that’s par for the course. But let’s not make it a mindless obsession. On #APMC, there is a simple test: Does not APMC abolition end monopoly/cartels & so boost farmer’s income? If YES, back the bills.”
Dear Fellow Congress-people, One should oppose PM Modi at any time when justified; that is par for the course. But let’s not make it a senseless obsession. On #APMC, there’s a easy take a look at: Does not APMC abolition finish monopoly/cartels & so increase farmer’s earnings? If YES, again the payments.

On Friday, Jha had stated that the Congress and the BJP are “on the same page” on the difficulty of farm payments because the Modi authorities was solely doing what the Congress had promised to do forward of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
“Folks, in our Congress manifesto for 2019 Lok Sabha elections we had ourselves proposed abolition of APMC Act and making agricultural produce free from restrictions. This is what Modi government has done in the farmers’ bills. BJP and Congress are on the same page here,” Jha had tweeted.
His remark drew an applause from BJP IT Cell chief Amit Malviya who stated, “The only person, who seems to have read the Congress manifesto, remembers it and is appalled at the duplicity of its leadership, who are conveniently abroad, while the Parliament is on and important steps to empower farmers are being taken.”

Farmers in states like Punjab and Haryana have been protesting towards these proposed legal guidelines which, their leaders allege, will find yourself dismantling the present government-backed help system they’ve. While the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance is but to have a transparent majority of its personal within the 245-member Rajya Sabha, many regional events have backed it for the final a number of periods to make sure passage of varied legislations proposed by the federal government.
BJP leaders expressed confidence that they may get the help of over 130 members, together with 9 of the AIADMK, and 7 of the TRS and 6 of the YSR Congress — all three of whom are usually not a part of the ruling alliance, if a division of votes is sought on these payments. The BJP has the very best tally with 86 seats, adopted by 40 of the Congress.
