Mangaluru: Mockery of farmers’ protest in Yakshagana - Leaders express objection


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Sep 23: A clip of Yakshagana video, which mocks the ongoing farmers’ protest against the agricultural law of the union government, is making rounds on social media. Farmers’ organizations of the state have objected to this teasing of their fight against the union government’s law by the Yakshagana artistes.

In the video, the Yakshagana artiste, mentioning the agricultural law of the union government says, “Those who are protesting for many months wearing green shawl and cap are not real farmers. They are faking identity. Even if they protest for six years, nothing is going to happen.”

“If the real farmers were sitting on roads in protest from where we would have got rice? Real farmers are still tilling the paddy fields,” it is said in the video.

The leaders of farmers’ organization say, “The dialogues delivered by the Yakshagana artiste in which farmers are insulted in order to support particular political parties does not augur well for the status of Yakshagana art.”

Yadav Shetty, vice president of Karnataka region Raitha Sangha said, “It is condemnable that Yakshagana art is used to make false propaganda against the farmers’ protest. Thereby the perpetrators are trying to degrade the art of Yakshagana also.”

Ravikiran Punacha, chief secretary of state Raitha Sangha said, “I have respect towards Yakshagana. But it is really hurting that those who do not have life’s experience are insulting the farmers.”

    It is not mockery of farmers but mockery of politicians. It is correct for the following reasons: 1. As it stands there are only farmers in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi. Everyone else are not farmers. 2. Farmers getting freedom to sell to the highest bidder is being protested. Which farmer will support it? 3. Agriculture is the least profitable biz. Who can afford to spend months to block the artery of nation and feel proud. All that this video said is correct, true and that which captures the pulse of farmers. It is politics if and only if, politicians are involved. Farmers are nowhere near and most importantly are not part of this dialogue/controversy. Yakshagana is only a medium. It is not on its own a political tool, and it never was.

    If farmers stop growing food grains then we need to start eating snakes cockroaches... In our India no value for farmers. And they do not get proper value only middlemen earning profits.

    Mr. Tauro, If all the farmers are protesting then there should have been shortage of food grains in India, but the case is opposite there is bumper harvest every where and India's exports have risen. Who are protesting then are they real farmers or middle men or rich farmers who want to eat the profits of the farmers this is to be investigated.

    BJP has time and again proved beyond doubt of indulging in Lies, Falsehoods and Slander to defame anyone opposing the Govt. People are fed up with their crude attempts to undermine the credibility of those opposing the BJP. It is clear to the people of our country that these three farm bills was a dubious case of match fixing by Modi and Amit Shah for their crony capitalists friends like Ambani and Adani. The elaborate advance preparations , go downs, super markets, land acquisitions and other arrangements by industrialists Abmani and Adani are already in the public domain. These crony capitalists will then dominate the agriculture sector and render the farmers vulnerable and vanquished. The BJP Govt has made a mockery of Parlimentary holders into confidence. They finally passed it in the Rajya Sabha in a most deceitful manner through a voice vote just to please their Crony Capitalist friends at the expense of the Farmers. A Suit Boot Ki Sarkar that is totally insensitive, Callous, Indifferent, Arrogant and Autocratic that cares two hoots for the lower sections of our society including farmers. If Agriculture is a State subject the why has the center passed Bills on Farm Laws on Agriculture.

    Politics in work, business, studies and Politics in Prayers also. We are not mindful of our own activities and see political angle in everything. Hyper politics corrupted the minds and ruined work, studies and business in UP Bihar is the trend in Karnataka also. We can surely foresee the future.
