Mangaluru, Sep 25: Activists of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) on Friday September 25 staged a protest at Mini Vidhana Soudha here against the government over the Farm Bills passed by the Parliament.

Farmers across the country are on Friday protesting against the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, 2020, passed by Parliament during the curtailed monsoon session that ended on Wednesday September 23.

Addressing the protestors, SDPI president Athaulla Jokatte said, "The government has introduced anti-farmer ordinances which is highly condemnable. This has pushed the farmers into a critical situation. If the ordinance had been in favour of the farmers the government would have discussed and revealed the contents of the bill to the nation.

"It is harsh that during this Covid situation, an anti-farmer ordinance was introduced. This will severely effect the farmers. Instead of solving the problems faced by the farmers, they have been pushed further to poverty," said Athaulla.

"Now an atmosphere has been created where investors can buy agricultral land from farmers. Farmers already are under the burden of loans, if the investors buy these agricultural lands then they will have to work as bonded labours," he added.

"When students protested against the National Register of Citizens (NRC) they were termed as 'terrorists', and those who stand in favour of Dalits have been called 'urban naxals', now it is the farmers' turn, who are raising their voice against the government. The day is not far when farmers too will be called terrorists and arrested," he said.

Mangaluru south zone SDPI president Suhail Khan, secretary Akbar Kudroli and others were present.

    Irrespective of any party politics the farmers should be supported by the general public. These farmers are the backbone of the country. Why do we allow the rich politician to carry on with their thumb rule

    Sdpi and pfi are the voice of voiceless people. This is the reason they are always been on target of govt back agencies.

You are just like HDK JD s subsidiary that is it ! when the election comes you are there to trade the votes.

    SDPI will be a strong opposition one day fighting for the interest of minorities. However it needs support from all minorities. Real ground support is the call of the hour.
    . Its really sad that during the CAA protests one section of the minority were just mute spectators and became lions and tigers on online forum with their fake ids. This is not what is expected,

    That one section of the minority is fully aware that CAA is not against any of the minorities of this country. It is solely for the benefit of persecuted minorities of some neighbouring countries.
