Raipur, Dec 8
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Chhattisgarh on Tuesday extended support to Bharat Bandh called by several farmer organisations in protest against Agricultural Law of the Central Government. AAP members burnt the copy of Agricultural Law in Raipur.
AAP state president Komal Hupendi, secretary Uttam Jaiswal, women cell state president Durga Jha among other state office bearers termed the law as corporate-friendly. AAP state members, including district secretary Ekant Agrawal, organisation secretary Mukesh Dewangan, Santosh Dubey, Youth Wing state vice president Laxman Sen, Priyanka Mishra, Dongeshwar Bharti, Prakash Chakradhari, Md Anwar Ansari, Balwant Singh, Rinku Sisodia, M M haidari and Gajanand Lehre, extended their support to the farmer agitation.
Meanwhile, a delegation led by Kisan Cell president Shatruhan Sahu submitted a memorandum, carrying 5-point demands, to the SDM of Dhamtari, addressing the President of India. The memorandum also showed solidarity with the farmers agitating for nearly a fortnight in protest against the Central government’s new Agricultural Law.
Sahu said that thousands of farmers across the country, including farmers of Chhattisgarh, took to the streets of Delhi to withdraw the agricultural law that ruined the farm barn in the harsh winter of December. AAP Chhattisgarh justifies the demand of the farmers organizations by supporting the demands.
District In-charge Nishant Bhatt, Satyam Puri Goswami said that this bill not only harms the farmers but the country’s population will also have to suffer heavy losses, so this battle is not only of the farmers but all of India population.
Krishna Kant Satwant Mahilang, Lalit Nagarachi said that what is going on in relation to these bills by the Central Government is going to mislead the farmers. Manoj Nagarachi, Om Prakash Pal, Shiv Narayan Dharmendra said that this bill is life-threatening for farming.
The five-point law to guarantee the right to the minimum support price should be implemented, arrangements should be made to register FIR under the MSP, agricultural Court should be established in each district, Swaminathan report should be implemented and all three agricultural laws should be withdrawn.
