While speaking exclusively with Nagpur Today, President of the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee Manikrao Thakre, said that after two days of debate, the BJP Government has decided to give a package that is not a package at all. They have decided to give Rs 7000 crores as package for 5 years. They have only assured to provide what Central Government had already approved and is what the Congress approved during its reign. The attitude of the BJP is displayed by the pro-businessmen / rich money class policies. They want to fill the coffers of the money lenders and not intend to help the farmers. They show no sensitivity or sympathy towards farmers.
