Farmers protesting eating chicken biryani to spread bird flu, says BJP leader

KOTA: BJP’s Rajasthan MLA Madan Dilawar lashed out at protesting farmers and said they are 'conspiring to spread bird flu by consuming chicken at the protest sites.'

The Member of Legislative Assembly further alleged that the "so-called farmers are not worried about the country, enjoying picnic and luxuries besides relishing delicacies."

"Some so-called farmers are agitating. These so-called farmers are not participating in any movement but enjoying chicken biryani and dry fruits for leisure. It is a conspiracy to spread bird flu," he added in a video statement.

There may be militants, robbers, and thieves among them and they may also be enemies of farmers and all these people want to ruin the country, BJP MLA alleged.

If the government does not remove them from the agitation sites, then bird flu can become a big problem in the country, Dilawar said.

Farmers have been protesting at different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws - Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020. Dilawar's comments sparked strong criticism from political rivals and otherwise. Rajasthan Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra, for instance, said that these comments "showcase the BJP's thinking".

Referring to the comments as "shameful", Dotasra tweeted asking, "Are you calling this movement of the food-providers, of those who feed you, a picnic, and responsible for bird flu?"
