Varun Gandhi slams Yogi Government for not providing assistance to Terai flood region

New Delhi: Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) MP Varun Gandhi has once again hit out at the Yogi government, saying that if the public has to do everything on their own, then what’s the government for.

The Lok Sabha MP, who earlier raised questions on the state government’s attitude towards the sugarcane farmers and over Lakhimpur Kheri violence, this time has targeted the Yogi government over the plight of the flood victims in the state.

Varun said that there is flood in the entire Terai region of the state he said, “People need help, but even at such a time, help is not being provided by the government”. He also asked, “What is the need of the government, if people have to help themselves even at such times,”.

Sharing pictures of the floods affected areas and distribution of dry ration to the victims, Varun tweeted, “Much of the Terai is badly flooded. Donating dry rations by hand so that no family is hungry till this calamity ends. It’s painful that when the common man needs the system the most, he’s left to fend for himself. If every response is individual-led then what does ‘governance’ mean.”

Earlier, he had also raised questions on the action being taken by the government in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case. He had also shared a video of the Lakhimpur incident and said that protestors cannot be silenced through murder.

Varun had also publicly written to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, demanding to increase the support price of sugarcane.

Varun Gandhi and MP Maneka Gandhi were dropped from the party’s national executive’s list recently to which Maneka had said that the non-inclusion in the party’s national executive list does not affect her stature and that she is satisfied to be in BJP.

The reason for the non-inclusion was said to be Varun’s criticism of the government.
