"The State government even opposed the triple talaq bill". "It is the handiwork of the Opposition to provoke potato farmers and defame the BJP government", charged the minister.

The state government faced an embarrassing situation on Saturday as quintals of potatoes were thrown by farmers in front of Vidhan Bhawan and outside Chief Minister's residence and the Governor House. After the saffron party came to power in the state a year ago, a number of buildings have been pained in the signature colour of the party including the Chief Minister's office.

"There was a truck which had sacks of potato and it started throwing potatoes in various parts of the city early this [Saturday] morning", Lucknow District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma told PTI. It's an organized conspiracy to malign the Yogi Adityanath government.

UP had seen a record production of 155-160 lakh metric tonne potatoes during 2016-17 and the state government after a cabinet meeting in April past year, had made a decision to buy the produce at a rate of Rs 487 per quintal. CM Yogi Adityanath also wanted potato crop from the state to get prominence for procurement in the Centre's E-National Agricultural Mart. "Today's (Saturday) protest was to wake up the government or else we will be forced to launch a statewide stir", warned Ayodhya Prasad, another farmer.

"Farmers said it was a symbolic protest against the government and its policies". While fixing the MSP, the government have not taken into account the money paid by farmers to store their produce in cold storages. After this incident came to light, CM Yogi Adityanath announced help to potato growers facing glut.
