Jamshedpur, Jan 10: All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) Eastern India Unit on Sunday organised Kisaan Hunkaar Sabha at Sakchi in support of farmers who are protesting near Delhi Sindhu border in protest against new Agriculture Laws. Several political leaders, social activists reached the Sakchi roundabout and raised their voice in support of farmers.
Addressing the gathering, former MLA Arvind Singh said that the farmers of the country cannot become a pawn. They have come to the streets to get their rights. It’s been 48 days they are on the streets. He assured the farmers that the people of the whole country and the world are with them.
He has appealed to the central government to shun arrogant posture and listen to the farmers of the country. He appealed to the President to direct the government that by convening a joint session of Parliament, the amended Agricultural law be removed.
“If the government really wants the welfare of the farmers, then it should give legal implementation to the MSP (Minimum Support Price). Stringent legal action should be made against merchants who purchase below MSP,” said Satnam Singh Gambhir, president of All India Sikh Students Federation Eastern India Unit.
Gambhir said that his organisation and the youth of the country are standing with the farmers. Due to the Green Revolution and farmers, the country has become self-sufficient in the matter of food and it does not have to spread its hand to the western countries. If the farmers had to face the opposite situation, then the people of the country should understand. The bad time for the people of the country will start and then the country will have to stand in front of America, Canada and Australia for food grains.
He cautioned the Central Government that in view of the interest of the country and the farmer, the Prime Minister himself should come forward and withdraw the three laws and call a joint session of Parliament to guarantee the minimum support price. If the black laws are not withdrawn, then there will be a side effect in the coming years. Even today, sixty percent of India’s population is based on agriculture.
