Bhopal:A BJP MLA may have embarrassed PM Minister Modi in midst of a heated election campaign in Uttar Pradesh. Days after PM promised loan waiver for UP farmers, a BJP MLA from Madhya Pradesh has made a derogatory statement about farmers' suicide.
BJP MLA Rameshwar Sharma said that he has never seen a real farmer die. "I have seen many rich people die but I have never seen any real farmer die. A true farmer only struggles. The ones who die are those who feed on subsidy in the name of agriculture," said Sharma.
Sharma further added that agriculture has been maligned by businessmen and politicians.
