Muzaffarpur, June 4: A case was registered against Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh on Monday over his “publicity stunt” remark on the ongoing farmers’ strike.
The union minister had dubbed “Kisan Avkash’ which started on June 1, a mere “media gimmick”.
Addressing a press conference in Bihar’s Patna, Singh had said “There are around 12 to 14 crore farmers in the country. It is normal for any farmer’s organisation to have 1000-2000 farmers and they have to do something extraordinary to get the media’s attention.
As farmer’s strike entered to its fourth day, protestors in Nagpur spilled milk on road against Singh’s remark and distributed milk to locals who came up with utensils requesting for it.
