Advani admits farmers not touched by ‘feel good factor’



Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani on Thursday admitted that the farming community was not touched by the “feel good factor”.

“Our government believes there is a good feeling in the country, But we feel the feel-good will really be so when the farming community says so. Today, they are not saying so although various sections of the society are saying it,” he said here.
Mr Advani was addressing a group of farmers from various places in Haryana who called on him to thank the government for the Cabinet decision to waive Capital Gain and Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) for agriculturists on their land acquired.
Apparently confident of their importance on the eve of the Lok Sabha polls, the farmers’ group were late for their appointment with Mr Advani by more than an hour, keeping him waiting at his residence.

Noting that agriculturists are facing certain problems, Mr Advani assured the group that steps would be taken to address all such issues.
He said a group of farmers had called on him some days ago for relief, after which he had talked to Agriculture Minister Rajnath Singh, leading to the Cabinet decision on TDS for the farming community.
