As per news report of The Indian Express, “Lesser quantity of fertiliser is now being given in sacks and the price has been increased,” she said. “They have a lot of issues but govt isn’t listening. They know that farmers are on roads for months. They are being mowed down by vehicles.” “Sharing the pain has been our tradition. The pain of village, poor, labourer, farmer is the pain of Congress,” read a post shared by the UP Congress’ official Twitter handle, along with an image of the Congress leader consoling the bereaved family members.
