Kisan Andolan Ekta Manch intensifies protest against Farm laws, Mangal Kalindi and Arvind Singh join demonstration

Jamshedpur, Jan 21: Under the banner of Kisan Andolan Ekta Manch took out a rally from Sakchi Ambagan.  The rally was taken out under the leadership of Bhagwan Singh, president, Mango Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee.  

Arvind Singh, former MLA, Ichagarh, said that for the last more than 40  days farmers have been protesting against the Agriculture Bills in Delhi. The government should listen to the farmers because the farmers of the country are the food providers. He said that the framers of the country cannot become a pawn. They have come to the streets to get their rights. He assured the farmers that the people of the whole country and the world are with them. The real fight of the farmers is with corporates. 

Jugsalai MLA Mangal Kalindi said that the Central Government is more concerned about construction of Ram Mandir than It is really sad that the government wants to demolish the government procurement system of Punjab and Haryana to benefit its capitalists. According to him, farmers from Bihar and Jharkhand have suffered a loss of Rs 1000 per quintal in order to sell the corn crop. There is no friendly leader of farmers in Bihar Jharkhand, this is the reason why the voice of the farmer there is not being heard,” said Mangal Kalindi.

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.

The rally went to Sakchi roundabout and converted into a dharna where members of other communities also supported the cause.

President Bhagwan Singh said that they have taken out the rally to show their support to the farmers. The participants wore masks and ensured social distancing. The idea is to express our concern over the bills. He expressed apprehension that the three Bills would pave the way for dismantling the Minimum Support Price (MSP) system, leaving them at the mercy of big companies.

 The two bills – the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 and the Farming Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020 – were passed by the Rajya Sabha despite uproar and strong protest by the Opposition parties in the house.
