Farmers in enthusiasm after Bharat Bandh
BJP government will not try to make the movement smaller now
Avik Saha, a senior member of the Morcha, told that once the MSP is not available, the fields are left vacant, if the crop gets damaged or any other loss, the farmer will bear all this once or twice. That’s because the land is his. You can get more yield next year by working hard. The laws passed by the Modi government will take away the ownership of the land from the farmer.
Members of the ‘United Kisan Morcha’ leading the farmers’ movement say that the eyes of the BJP government at the Center have been opened by Monday’s ‘Bharat Bandh’. It is hoped that now the BJP government will not try to make the farmers’ movement look small. Avik Saha, a senior member of the Morcha, told that till now in the government’s terminology, ‘Kisan Andolan’ used to hear such words that it is a movement of farmers of two or four states. This will not happen in future. Farmers are hopeful that the government will hold talks. Reports received from farmer organizations till 3.30 pm show that the effect of ‘Bharat Bandh’ has been seen in 22 states.
Everyone has the right to have their say in a democracy. It is the duty of the elected government to listen carefully to the voice of its citizens. Lest he heard with one ear and cast out with the other. Avik Saha says, if true democracy is being talked about, then the responsibility of saving it is as much of the common people as it is of the government. The farmers were confident that the government would listen to them, but not. The government made fun of the farmers. A conspiracy was hatched to end the existence of farmers by making three black agricultural laws.
There have been agitations in the country for decades regarding farmer’s MSP. There was never a need for a nationwide movement. Yes, from time to time large rallies, public meetings and mahapanchayats have been held to open the ears of the government. What else does the farmer have? If the land is not there now, then where will it go? will become a laborer. The existing three black laws of the central government will destroy even the land of the farmer. The anger of the people of the country is about the fact that the farmer is already suppressed and now his land is being encroached upon.
Avik Saha said, once the MSP is not received, the fields are left vacant, if the crop gets damaged or any other loss, the farmer will bear all this once or twice. That’s because the land is his. You can get more yield next year by working hard. The laws passed by the Modi government will take away the ownership of the land from the farmer. Where will the farmer go after that? He will cultivate his land by becoming a daily wage laborer. Ten months is a lot. Anyway, the success of Bharat Bandh has told the Center that the enmity with the farmers of the country for a long time is not good.
Farmers’ organizations hope that now the government will think. Six hundred and fifty farmers have been martyred in this movement. In our country, the government does not listen without sacrifice. Now the sacrifice has also been made. Apart from other states of the country, the echo of Bharat Bandh has been heard in Manipur, Mizoram and Sikkim. Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait said, ‘Bharat Bandh‘ has been a complete success. BJP is not ready to accept in advance that any movement is going on in the country. We have got full support of farmers. The farmers have kept in mind the problems of the common people. The whole country cannot be sealed. We should not put people’s lives in danger. Farmers’ organizations are ready for talks with the central government. It is certain that till the government does not accept their demands, the farmers will not back down.
