Delhi farmers’ protests: Telangana farmers lend support

Farmers’ unions and non-governmental organisations in Telangana have introduced their support to the protesting farmers in Delhi. They held a number of dharnas and rasta rokos in Hyderabad ever because the farmers from Punjab and Haryana started their protest previous week.

On Thursday, they organised rasta rokos in unique pieces of the Point out, demanding the Centre to repeal the three Agricultural Acts. In Hyderabad, they organised rasta roko at the RTC Cross roadways. The police arrested the protesters and later on released them.

“The three Acts would harm the passions of the farmers. They ended up introduced and handed in Parliament in an undemocratic method,” T Sagar of Telangana Rythu Sangham claimed. “Lakhs of farmers are protesting in Delhi from the Acts. The Governing administration is employing pressure to disperse the protesting farmers,” he claimed.

Announcing solidarity with the Delhi protesters, the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) held a working day-long dharna at the Dharna Chowk around Indira Park two days ago.

Vemulapalli Venkatramaiah, President of All India Kisan Mazdoor Sabha (AIKMS), alleged that the three Acts would make farmers endure greatly.

“The bare minimum support prices (MSP) are hardly sufficient to meet the precise value of manufacturing. The farmers are not even acquiring the MSPs. If the MSP regime goes, they would end up creating losses,” he claimed, addressing the dharna.

Book start

‘Increase of Farmers Revenue – Modi government’s Deception’ — a e-book that he co-authored with Asish Mittal was released at the dharna web site.

The e-book talked about the 4 Acts — The Farmers Generate, Trade and Commerce (Marketing and Facilitation) Act 2020 the Farmers (Empowerment and Generation) Arrangement on Price tag Assurance and Farm Solutions Act, 2020 and the Vital Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 and the Electricity (Amendment) Bill, 2020.

AIKSCC chief K Goverdhan criticised the K Chandrashekar Rao Governing administration in Telangana for not opposing the Centre’s farm functions.
