india Updated: Jan 25, 2009 20:10 IST

INLD chief Om Prakash Chautala on Sunday alleged that Congress-led UPA Government was adopting anti-farmer policies and said an agriculture-based economy can not make any progress if the farmers are "ignored."

Addressing a 'Vijay Sankalp Rally' organised jointly by INLD and BJP here, he said "when farmers are hungry due to wrong and anti-farmer policies of the UPA, the country can never make a progress."

He said farmers had to purchase DAP fertiliser and pesticides from black market owing to their shortage.

BJP president Rajnath Singh, who was expected to particiapte in the rally, failed to turn up.
