Kisan sabha: Govt trying to muzzle voice of farmers

Tribune News Service
Rohtak, September 10

Condemning the use of police force on farmers in Pipli, Akhil Bhartiya Kisan Sabha (ABKS) state general secretary Sumit Kumar said the state government had tried to suppress the voice of farmers and other sections against its "erroneous" policies, but the sabha would not let the government do so.

While interacting with the media here on Thursday, he said the BJP government would have to face the consequences of resorting to force against the farmers who were peacefully raising their voice against "misdeeds" of the government.

The ABKS vice-president, Inderjit Singh, threw a challenge to Agriculture Minister JP Dalal to have a public debate with ABKS leaders anywhere and anytime on the three ordinances.

He also accused the state government of adopting an insensitive attitude towards the woes of cotton growers who suffered extensive loss due to pest infestation. "It is unfortunate that the government has failed to notify a special survey of losses," Inderjit Singh added.

District president Preet Singh and state committee member Balwan Singh appealed to all organisations of farmers, agricultural workers, mandi labourers and small traders to forge a broad unity in order to resist and oppose the "anti-agriculture" policies of the BJP-led Centre and state governments.
