CAVALCADE OF 10,000 TRACTORS TO PROTEST ANTI-FARMER POLICY OF NDA GOVT
New Delhi, (Global News): In a meeting of the Punjab State Committee of All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) attended by 10 constituent organisations as well as Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ugrahan), Bhartiya Kisan Union (Krantikari) and Bhartiya Kisan Union (Sidhuwal), plans to organise a massive farmers protest rallies with 10,000 tractors on 27th July, 2020, was finalised. Farmers shall march towards the offices of the elected representatives and prominent leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party and Akali Dal, who are partners in the NDA Govt. at the Centre, in protest against the slew of anti-farmer policies and actions of the Govt. The protest is against the:
1) Three anti-farmer ordinances which will lead to further hardship for farmers and eventually pave the way corporatization of agriculture and decimation of small and medium farmers
2) Electricity amendment laws and sky-rocketing diesel rates that will make power prices and input costs higher and thus make farming even more unremunerative
3) Attack on the civil liberties of activists, intellectuals, poets, writers and cultural activists by the NDA Govt.
It may be remembered that AIKSCC is the largest confederation of farmers and farm-workers organisations of India, with more than 250 constituent members. AIKSCC has already launched a nation-wide campaign to protect the interest of the agriculture sector, which is being mauled by the Modi led NDA Govt., in a bid to create food monopolies of corporate backers of the Govt. AIKSCC has been at the forefront of battling this Govt. for rights of farmers and has achieved landmark successes for farmers.
