At a felicitation event in up’s Baghpat Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik expressed his support to the farmers protest claimed that he will help end the ongoing stir if the centre gives a legal guarantee of the minimum support price (MSP) for crops.
While expressing the support to the ongoing farmers agitation, Satya Pal Malik urged PM Modi and home minister Amit Shah to not offend the protesters.
While delivering the speech, Satya Pal Malik said that prime minister and home minister should not allow farmers to go back to home from Delhi empty-handed.
He also asserted that he will take entire responsibility to end the farmers protest at borders of Delhi if centre promises a legal guarantee of MSP.
“Don’t insult and send the farmers back empty-handed from Delhi. The Sikh community does not back down and forget things even after 300 years. None of the laws are in favour of farmers. The country in which farmers and soldiers are not satisfied, cannot progress. Hence, the Army and farmers should be kept satisfied,” Satya Pal Malik said in an appeal to PM Modi.
Emphasising the condition of farmers he said that “they are getting poorer day by day with out their knowledge, whatever they sown are becoming cheap when they reap it, but salaries of government officials and staff are hiked every three years”
Satya Pal Malik also asserted that he prevented the arrest of farmer leader Rakesh Tikait.
