An eight-page letter from Union agriculture minister Narendra Tomar marked the beginning of the BJP’s big outreach programme for the protesting farmers.
The letter was released after a party meeting that was attended by its key leaders Union minister Amit Shah, his cabinet colleagues Piyush Goyal, Nirmala Sitharaman, Narendra Tomar, and party chief JP Nadda.
“Narendra Tomar Ji has expressed his feelings by writing a letter to farmer brothers and sisters, trying to have a polite dialogue. I request all the contributors to read it.
The countrymen are also urged to make it reach to as many people as possible,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted.
In the letter, the government spoke of keeping communication open with the farmers but insisted that it would not entertain any opposition agenda.
