Kissan Congress begins ‘Satyagraha’ against Anti-Farmer Bill 2020

Early Times Report

KATHUA, Sept 25: All J&K Kissan Congress started unprecedented ‘Satyagraha’ against the BJP led Government for amending Anti-Farmer Bill 2020.
In this connection, a protest was organized by District Kissan Congress, Kathua unit under the leadership of Ch Gharu Ram, Chairman JK Kissan Congress.
Gharu Ram, while leading the ‘Satyagraha’, said that already suffering farmers in J&K have been pushed to more devastation by the twin anti-farmers bills.
“The farmers’ income and the price of produce will be directly controlled and decided by the big corporate houses whom the farmers will have no contact and control over the decision of deciding Minimum Support Price (MSP),” Gharu said. He added that the Mandi system of buying and selling of famers produce will totally vanish and farmers will be forced to sell their crop production at mere costs hence leading them to the slaves of the corporate houses.
“APMC will be replaced by MSP wherein farmers will not have direct hand over their produce and its price and same will be informed to them after the decision of MSP will be finalized,”
He said and lamented at the BJP-led government for depriving the farmers of their own blood and sweat.
Gharu Ram said that these farm bills are not acceptable by Congress Party and the government must ‘declare in writing’ the MSP of farmers’ produce prior to handing over to these corporate houses and repeal the twin anti-farmers Bills.
Gharu Ram asserted that the ‘Satyagraha’ shall continue till October 2 in which several protests and rallies will be organized to mark resentment against the BJP government for betraying farmers of the country.
Among those who joined the ‘Satyagraha’ include PCC Secretary, Pankaj Dogra Nirdosh Sharma Secretary PCC, Aradhana Andotra, Tarsem Lal Saini District President Kathua Kissan Congress, Kulbir Pathania, Sat Pal Bhandari, Block President, Pushpa Devi MC, Paramjeet Singh Pamma, Vishu Gandotra, Vinay Kumar SC District President SC Cell.
