Cornering the BJP-led Centre, Jakhar alleged that the central government is not ready to listen to the grievances of the farmers and only concerned about businessmen like Anil Ambani and Gautam Adani.
"The government has taken a vow that it will achieve a 'kisan-less India', just like 'cashless India'. The Prime Minister, who was on a recent visit to Punjab, did not bother to mention the problems faced by the small farmers," he told ANI.
"Farmers are unable to pay the loans as their prices have increased in the last few years. Farmers are having no option but to commit suicide. What options do they have?" Jakhar further said.
