After all, whom do farmers trust? On the statement of Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar or Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi? On the one hand, the Agriculture Minister invites farmers to discuss with an open mind, and on the other hand, Minister Meenakshi Lekhi, in her own government, calls the farmers mawali and conspirators.
Narendra Singh Tomar told reporters in the Parliament House complex on Thursday that the government is ready for an open-hearted discussion with the agitating farmers’ organizations. Tell the farmers’ organizations that they have objections to the provisions of the agricultural reform laws, the government will solve them.
On this day, in a press conference at the BJP headquarters, Minister of State for External Affairs Meenakshi Lekhi, on the question made on the farmers’ dharna, bluntly said that do not call them farmers, they are mawali, they are conspirators. Farmers do not have enough time to leave work and sit on dharna and protest.
After the press conference, Meenakshi Lekhi was asked that it was the government that gave her permission to hold a Kisan Parliament at Jantar Mantar, if she was a mawali, why did she get permission? To this Lekhi said- ‘Democracy is there, everyone has the right to dharna and protest here, but his Parliament does not matter.’
Phone espionage case Congress and TMC concoction
In the Pegasus espionage case, Lekhi said that throughout this story a list of phone numbers recorded in the Yellow Pages of the directory was crafted, created, circulated and this story was disseminated. This is a story made of fabrication without proof and facts.
This story says itself – leaked data. Leaking data is a crime. This is fraud, defamation. He said that Congress and TMC fabricated this entire story. There were two mythical characters like in Harry Potter. In the same way this story was also coined. This is a concocted story. Amnesty International itself has given a statement on this.
‘Government has no responsibility in Pegasus case’
Meenakshi Lekhi was asked by Dainik Bhaskar to leave out the other names, but after forensic analysis of their phones, a media house has claimed to be phone espionage, they will definitely ask questions to the government. Not only this, if the matter has been raised, then the investigation should be done? On this his answer was that whom would he ask the question to. You have no idea what is going on in the world? Who is playing some games with your data? Pegasus and so on are all childish acts.
The microchip inside the phone you buy is spied on by everything. You are not even talking about who people are doing. All this scandal is happening for it not to be the real thing. There is no burden of espionage case on the government. That is, the government has no responsibility. After the press conference, the Union Minister refused to answer on the question of Raid on Dainik Bhaskar and Bharat Samachar.
JPC has already been formed 7 months ago on data protection
On the question of data protection, Meenakshi Lekhi said that 7 months ago, under my chairmanship, a Joint Parliamentary Committee has been formed to investigate the matter and prepare a report. The report was prepared long back. It has already been signed. But due to Corona, Election and Cabinet Rishfall, it has not been published yet. Soon that report will be public.
