Social activist Anna Hazare on Thursday prolonged his assist to farmer protests and warned the Central authorities that he would start a “Jan Andolan” if farmers’ calls for stay unaddressed.
“The then Congress government was left shaken during the time of ”Lokpal Andolan”. I see these farmer protests issue along the same lines. On the day of Bharat Bandh, I had organised an andolan in my village in Ralegan-Siddhi. I had fasted for a day in support of farmers,” mentioned Mr Hazare.
“If the government does not accept the demands of the farmers, I will once again sit for a ”Jan Andolan” that will be similar to the Lokpal agitation,” he warned.
Over the previous few months, 1000’s of farmers have been protesting towards three new agricultural legal guidelines, which they really feel might be exploited by the non-public sector to purchase their crops at decrease costs.
Highlighting the vital position farmers play within the nation, Mr Hazare mentioned: “No law can be approved against the farmer in a country, which is highly dependent on agriculture. If the government does so, then the movement against it is justified.”
Farmers had known as Bharat Bandh on December 8.
“The protests that are going on at Delhi borders should take the path of non-violence. I request all the protestors to protest peacefully and follow the preachings of Mahatma Gandhi,” he added.
