“It is anti-people and poor people have been left hungry,” Sagar said. He ridiculed the government for calling NFSA implementation as “land mark decision”. “You changed statements after statement about the NFSA,” Sagar told CAPD Minister who is listening to the debate.
Sagar said it (changing statements) was “astonishing”, “you government has done only one thing: U-Turns. Be it Sainik Colony, KP townships or New Industrial Policy.”
Observing that Ch Zulfikar Ali is a young and energetic politicians, Sagar told the minister, “you have to work a lot; you are young but your government is playing with you and your career.”

“But,” Sagar told Zulfikar, “I’m telling you, PDP and BJP is playing with your career as people are suffering because of NFSA.”
