Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders said the discussion organised by the BJP Kisan Morcha and Citizens for Accountable Governance, would be held in three phases — batayiye (tell), poochiye (ask) and sujhaiye (suggest).

BJP leaders told IANS that the party was focussing on farmers in the state as a potential voting class and exploring ways of tapping it.

"The BJP has always been a well wisher of the farmers who are disenchanted with the ruling Samajwadi Party in the state and it is natural for them to look towards the BJP and Modi," said Vijay Bahadur Pathak, BJP spokesman in the state.
