Former Union Minister of State Dr Charan Das Mahant questioned why the state government is disbursing bonus of paddy to mere 13 lakh farmers when there are around 37 lakh farmers in the state.
He said that bonus is the right of the farmers and the state government should answer why it did not provide this bonus for past three years.
He also grilled the central government as to why it could not provide 1 crores jobs per year to the youth of the country.
He said that the magic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has waned which is clear from the fact that Congress registered its victory in Gurdaspur, Nanded, Kerala and Uttar Pradesh.
He also took potshots at the state government and added that timing of liquor stores have been extended and this is because the bonus money be spent on the liquor consumption and thus returns back to the state government.>
