KMSC looks forward Captain’s style to protect interests of farmers
Ferozepur, October 19, 2020: The protest of the farmers under the banner of Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee – KMSC, in Ferozepur, today entered 26th day under the Rail-Roko call against the three Central Farm Laws. The protesters shouted against the Centre’s anti-farmers policies and later burned the effigies to register their resentment. At the same time, the protesters now look forward Captain’s style to protect the interests of Punjab’s farmers over calling the Special Sessions.
Added here, on the first day of the 13th Special Session of the 15th Vidhan Sabha, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday led the House in paying homage to all farmers who have lost their lives during the ongoing agitation in protest against the Centre’s “draconian” agricultural laws.
The on-going protests have put a lot of inconvenience to the passengers and loss on account of trains off the tracks.
The frontal attack by the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Sunday against the central farm laws, even as he was authorized by his council of ministers to take any legislative/legal decision he may deem fit to protect the interests of the farmers. The farmers sitting on protest on the railway tracks have high expectations from the ruling government.
Condemning the Farm Laws, Satnam Singh Pannu, State President KMSC and others said, we still doubt the intentions of the Punjab government to take a decision in the Session at the behest of the Central government.
The farmer leaders said, in case the Punjab government is really interested to help the farmers, then it should take some historical decisions to cancel the three anti-farm bills and leave no loop hole which may go against the interests of the farmers especially the MSP – minimum support price – issue and giving the powers to the States by de-centralizing the powers of the Centre for sale and purchase of 23 crops in the open to strengthen the economic condition of the farmers, state and country as well.
Giving a warning, Pannu said, in case the Punjab government support the Centre in making the laws, the agitation front will also be opened against the Punjab government.
