BHARATIYA JANATA Party (BJP) has asked the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre to reconsider its decision to import wheat from other countries, as that would break the back of the farmers in the country.

In a joint statement issued here today, BJP divisional spokesman Govind Maloo and BJP Kisan Morcha State president Ashok Patidar said that by taking the decision to import wheat from other countries, the UPA Government had resorted to back stabbing the farmers of the country.

On one hand the UPA Government failed to provide farm loans to farmers at a concession interest rate of 6 per cent, and on the other by taking the decision to import five-lakh tonne wheat from foreign countries, the UPA Government has vitiated the atmosphere further for farmers in the country.

Maloo and Patidar asked the government to reconsider this anti-farmer decision.
