Gwalior, Oct 23 (PTI) Chhattisgarh Chief Minister
Bhupesh Baghel on Friday said the Centre was eying farmers”
land to hand over to “capitalists” after selling off PSUs and

While Baghel was scheduled to address campaign rallies
for the Congress for bypolls to 28 Madhya Pradesh Assembly
seats scheduled for November 3, he did not get the
administration”s nod as the party had failed to apply for
permission 48 hours prior to the event, the party”s district
unit chief Devendra Sharma said.

Baghel said the BJP government in the state was afraid
of his campaign and exuded confidence that his party would be
back in power after bypoll results are declared on November

Referring to the Centre”s new farm laws, Baghel said.
“We have called a special session of the Chhattisgarh Assembly
on October 28 to protect the interest of farmers.”

“The BJP has shut down a number of public sector
companies and sold many of them. They have started selling
railways and airports too, Not satisfied, the Centre has
framed black laws to hand over farm land to capitalists,” the
CM of the neighbouring state claimed.

He said these laws would turn farmers into labourers.

Speaking on the bypolls, he said people had not liked
the way the BJP had toppled the Kamal Nath government here in
March and the results would reflect this anger.

Baghel hit out at Congressman-turned BJP Rajya Sabha
MP Jyotiraditya Scindia claiming the latter was unable to
sustain himself without a post and, therefore, switched sides.

He also lashed out at the BJP”s announcement in poll-
bound Bihar that the coronavirus vaccine would be given free
to people in that state.

“Has the coronavirus affected only people of Bihar,”
Baghel asked. PTI COR MAS
