Press Trust of India  |  Mandsaur (MP) 

Former Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Togadia today alleged that stone-pelters in were being spared but farmers were being shot dead in the country.

"The cases against stone-pelters are being withdrawn in Kashmir, while farmers are being shot dead in the country," Togadia said.

He was speaking while the sharing the stage with former Union and Shatrughan Sinha at a programme in Daluda, some 18 kilometres from here, to condole the deaths of six farmers who were killed in police firing on June 6 last year.

He said that while 100 per cent crops were insured in the of America, only 24 per cent crops were insured in

He claimed that only eight per cent farmers had been paid so far.

A government that cannot not check inflation had no right to be in power, Togadia told the gathering.

In his address to farmers, claimed that a group of 10-20 people accompany wherever he goes and chants "Modi, Modi".

"Modi is not an issue. Farmers, youth, Dalits who are facing atrocities, the future of people, the future of the country and the future of democracy are the issues," he said.

"Is samay dhoka mat khana (don't get deceived this time around)," he said, apparently referring to the MP Assembly elections, slated for later this year, and next year's general polls.

Without naming Modi, he said a is touring the country with baits to trap birds.

Shatrughan Sinha, speaking at the meet, took a dig at Modi's "Mann ki Baat" programme and claimed that he had come in the midst of farmers not for "mann ki baat" but "dil ki baat".

"The BJP is not the party which it used to be during (former prime minister) Atal Bihari Vajpayee's time," he said.
