For This Politician, Those Who Commit Suicide Aren’t ‘Real Farmers’ But ‘Subsidy Lickers’

Published on 18 February, 2017 at 9:03 am By

BJP MLA from Madhya Pradesh, Rameshwar Sharma, has racked up yet another controversy for BJP, by making a statement where is called farmers “subsidy lickers”.

 

Further, he even added that the farmers who commit suicide are not “real farmers” and that he has never seen a “real farmer die”.

 


These derogatory statements were made by Sharma when he was addressing the media and was asked about increasing number of suicides being committed by farmers.



“I have seen many rich people die but I have never seen any real farmer die. A true farmer only struggles. The ones who die are those who feed on subsidy in the name of agriculture.” – Rameshwar Sharma

This is not the first time that a BJP party member has racked up controversy by making ridiculous statements as in past many well-known politicians have racked controversy for things they said.

 


Sharma in his statement even went a step ahead and in order to attack the opposition added that the “profession of agriculture” is now being maligned by businessmen and politicians.

Sharma’s statement comes at a time when farmer’s agenda has become one of the top priorities for both the opposition and the ruling party.

 

While BJP is taking many initiatives to help the farmers, Congress is accusing them of not been able to fulfil their promises.
