Today, BSP Supremo Mayawati hits out at BJP in Uttar Pradesh over rising cane arrears to farmers, inquired why it cannot act tough against the erring owners of sugar mills.
She tweeted, “How can the UP sugarcane farmers be happy and prosperous when their arrears amount to Rs. 10 thousand crores? This is a matter to ponder on. Anti-farmers and pro-capitalist BJP government need not make wrong claims.”
