Dhankhar slams Mamata Govt for "depriving" 70 lac Bengal farmers of Rs 8,400 crore benefit

Kolkata, Sep 22 (UNI) Taking a dig at the Mamata Banerjee Government for "depriving"
70 lac West Bengal farmers of Rs 8,400 crore benefit by failing to participate in the
PM-Kisan Samman Nidhi, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Tuesday said this palpable
injustice to farmers smacked of "poor politics and bad economics".
Taking to his twitter handle, Mr Dhankhar asked, " Why deny @MamataOfficial
benefit Rs 8,400 crores to 70 lac WB farmers. by failure to participation in PM-Kisan
Samman Nidhi ! "
" So far every farmer has lost Rs. 12,000/- that would have come to his bank account,"
he said and added, "Urge CM -Crocodile Tears will not relieve pain of farmers. "
" Farmers in the Country, except WB have enormously benefited from PM-Kisan scheme
and so far more than Rs. 92,000 crores have been defrayed to them, " Mr Dhankhar stated.
" This palpable injustice to WB farmers is poor politics and bad exonomics
@MamataOfficial," the Governor averred.
Stating that due to "inaction" of the Mamata Banerjee Government, the farmers of the state
had been denied benefit of Rs 30,000 crore out of Rs. 3.5 lakh crore package by the Central Government during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr Dhankhar expected the Chief Minister will
reflect and take steps to help West Bengal farmers avail benefit of the ongoing PM-KISAN.
