The National Democratic Alliance has suffered another major setback on the issue of farmers. The Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) has left the NDA. The party’s convenor and MP from Nagaur Hanuman Beniwal has announced this. Let us tell you that Beniwal had announced to travel from Rajasthan to Delhi on December 26 with 2 lakh farmers in support of the farmers’ movement.
It is also worth noting that earlier on the issue of farmers, the NDA’s ally Akali Dal had also abandoned BJP. The BJP is the largest party among all NDA allies, which is trying to explain the benefits of the agricultural law to the farmers. On the other hand, farmers have been agitating on the Delhi Singhu border for the past several days.
Earlier, Beniwal had said that the Narendra Modi government has 303 MPs due to which it is not withdrawing the agricultural laws. Farmers of Rajasthan are traveling towards Delhi, 1,200 kilometers away. Regarding staying in the NDA, he said that a decision would be taken on staying or leaving the NDA after the Haryana border meeting in Shahjahanpur.
Not aligned with Congress: Hanuman Beniwal
Hanuman Beniwal spoke to the media after announcing his separation from the National Democratic Alliance. He said that he has left the NDA in support of the farmer movement. The new agricultural laws are anti-farmer. Leaving NDA does not mean that our party will ally with Congress.
Beniwal resigned from three parliamentary committees
You should know that on December 19, Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) chief Hanuman Beniwal resigned from three parliamentary committees in support of the farmers’ movement. Beniwal sent his resignation letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
However, the main reason for Beniwal’s resignation was a case of breach of privilege in the case related to the attack on him in Barmer, in which even after the intervention of Parliament, a case was not filed and action was not taken.
Beniwal further claims that his covid-19 report was fudged to keep him out of the Lok Sabha.
