Congress fully supported the Black Day observed by the farmers

Chandigarh, (Aditi) President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee, Kumari Selja today fully supported the Black Day observed by the farmers and appealed to the government to immediately accept the demands of the farmers. Kumari Selja said that the BJP government at the center should immediately do away with its ego and start the process of dialogue with the farmers and withdraw the anti-agriculture black laws. Along with this, the Haryana government should withdraw the cases registered against farmers in the state during the agitation. In a statement issued here today, Kumari Selja said that whether it is the fight against Corona virus or the demands of farmers and laborers, the insensitivity of the BJP government can be seen time and again.

Kumari Selja said that due to the anti-farmer policies of the government, the farmers have been agitating in this corona epidemic for the last six months. More than 400 farmers have lost their lives in this movement, but it had no effect on the government. Government is completely arrogant, she added. Kumari Selja said that today farmers and laborers have been forced to come to the streets again to protest for their demands. Every effort is being made by the government to suppress the voice of the farmers. Farmers are being lathi-charged for raising their legitimate demands and cases are being registered against them and they are being put in jail.

Kumari Selja said that the Congress party fully supports the demands of farmers. UPA Chairperson and Congress President Sonia Gandhi and 11 other parties have demanded that the BJP government at the Center should immediately withdraw all three anti-agriculture black laws and make legal provision for Minimum Support Price. Along with this, she also demanded from the Haryana government that the farmers, against whom cases have been registered during the agitation in the state, should be withdrawn with immediate effect. The Congress party has always been with the farmers and laborers, and it will continue to stand with them in future as well.
