Lucknow: With elections around the corner, it seems there is no control on CM Yogi's ministers. While farmers are struggling to secure fertilizer in the peak Rabi season, a minister in the Yogi government has used disparaging language against them.

On Friday evening, a farmer died in Lalitpur district of Uttar Pradesh after waiting for two consecutive days in a queue for fertilizer. Manohar Lal, alias Munnu Kori, a state minister in the Yogi cabinet, reached the fertilizer distribution centre on Saturday and had a tiff with the waiting farmers. The dejected asked the minister as to why they are being denied fertilizer.
