New Delhi, Dec 27: As the farmers’ protest against the Centre’s three new farm laws at Delhi’s periphery entered the 32nd day on Sunday, the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) gave a call to the people, to take oath in support of the farmers on New Year.
‘AIKSCC has called for a countrywide protest on New Year by people all over the country taking a pledge to support the farmers’ struggle and demanding repeal of the three Farm Acts and the EB 2020.
‘Led by AIKSCC, the massive protest rallies are being organised on the issues of repeal of these Farm Acts, at Patna in Bihar and Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu on December 29 and in Manipur and Hyderabad on December 30,’ the AIKSCC said in a statement here on Sunday.
‘At the call of farmers organisations including AIKSCC, today, at thousands of places, farmers, workers and other sections of people assembled during the airing of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ of the PM to show their protest against his indifference to farmers and service to corporates and MNCs.
‘They clanged thalis to drown the sound of the lies of the PM. This has led to massive rise of disillusionment and frustration in the rural youth,’ the statement said.
The farmers’ organisation said the present movement gives them a sense of direction for the development of rural economy, employment generation and development of the farmers.
‘While farmers demand Government investment in agriculture infrastructure and food processing, the Government refuses to help farmers’ development and plans to spend Rs one lakh crore to help the corporates and MNCs to invest in Indian agriculture. This is the path of self-destruction, not Atmanirbharta,’ it added.
