    Amul vice-chairman opposes PM Modi’s presence at Anand event

    Accusing the BJP of hijacking the Amul Dairy event where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to unveil Rs 1,500 crore worth of projects and address a gathering of farmers, the vice-chairman of Amul, Rajendrasinh Parmar, on Saturday said that he would boycott the programme near Anand on Sunday.

    “I will be boycotting the event,” said Parmar, who is also a Congress MLA from Borsad Assembly constituency.

    When asked the reason for the boycott, he told The Sunday Express, “It does not look like a function organised by Amul Dairy. It now seems like a political function where one political party (BJP) is running the show. In the past, several Congress prime ministers have visited Amul Dairy, but flag of one political party was never used. The management of Amul has no idea of the function and it is the political party that is in charge.”
