New Delhi: Even after being snubbed by AICC
for his criticism of Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, senior
Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi on Thursday said that he had
"not done anything wrong" while raising the issue of farmers.

"I know, I have not done anything wrong. I was raising
the issue of farmers. I am a member of the CWC and I know my
limits," Chaturvedi told reporters here.

Chaturvedi had raised a controversy by attacking Pawar
accusing him of misrepresenting facts on availability of
sugar.

"As far as the Agriculture Ministry is concerned, where
are the stocks of sugar which the ministry had claimed, it had
earlier," he reiterated.

"If the stocks are there they should release it to bring
the crisis caused by the shortage of sugar under control,"
Chaturvedi said.
