Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (MS/SP)

Bengaluru, Sep 26: Samyukta Kissan Morcha has given a nation-wide call for Bharat Bandh on Monday September 27 in protest against the controversial farm laws, price rise of essential commodities, and other issues. Farmers’ associations in Karnataka and various other organizations have expressed their solidarity to the bandh.

In addition to state farmers’ organizations, labour unions, pro-Kannada organization, student unions, traders’ associations, autorickshaw drivers’ association and taxi drivers' association will also take part in the protest.

Private educational institutions of the state have expressed moral support to the bandh. It is learnt that hotels, transport, lorry association etc have decided to extend moral support to the call because of the current crisis. Hotel Owners Association, Lorry Owners Association, KSRTC and BMTC employees Association, taxi owners association and other organizations have decided to extend only moral support, but will not suspend services.

In coastal districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi, private bus owners’ associations have not expressed support to the bandh. It is expected that buses in the twin districts will ply as usual.

Sugarcane Growers Association, Karnataka Rajya Raita Sangha and other organizations have supported the call. The organizations have decided to extend moral support to the call and provide services normally because of the losses they are suffering from.

Hotel Owners Association president, P C Rao, was quoted in the media saying that the hotel industry is in doldrums and that their industry is totally dependent on farm products. He said that hotel services will not be affected.

Lorry Owners Association state president B Chennareddy has said that no one has sought his association's support so far and that lorries will function as usual if there is provision for loading and unloading. R Chandrashekhar, president of KSRTC Employees Union said that all the four state transport corporations will provide services as before. He said that services will be suspended only if the situation becomes tough.

Akhanda Karnataka Raita Sangha Haveri district president, Prakash Barki, said in a press conference that on September 27, national highway will be blocked near the highway toll plaza in Bankapur town in support of the bandh call.

    Think Chor Tikka the leader of all this from terrorists abroad will join the grand old party soon and its Scion as usual, will sing something like... Mera Tikka Ghar Aaya... Sab Dekhojee.. Chor Tikka Aaya sab Dekhojee... Shameless fellow Tikka, exploiting farmers at the behest of the brokers lobby. As it is the country is reeling under adverse effects of Corons and above this Tikkas Nautanki. I am sure no one will support this Nonsense.

    The BJP Govt has made a mockery of Parlimentary Democracy by passing these Farm Bills without any discussion in the house or taken any Parlimentary bodies into confidence. 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. . 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. "Since Independence, it is for the first time that an arrogant government has come to power. It is not even looking at the pain and sufferings of farmers, forget about the common man,"If Agriculture is a State subject the why has the center passed Bills on Farm Laws on Agriculture. We must support our Farmers.

    In coastal districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi, private bus owners’ associations have not expressed support to the bandh. It is expected that buses in the twin districts will ply as usual. That's because we are the most educated and advanced in terms of Literacy in the sate. Almost all top ranks in the state, is deserved for undivided DK. Our people, even students know what's right and what wrong , what's good and what's bad for the nation. We have farm in 2 places, both places our work will go as usual as the hard working farmers who toil in our fields and estate are un effected by all these farm politics. But , Yes they are worried about inflation though. That does not mean disrupt public life.

    Readers, our nation is still under partial Lockdown since last 2 years, due to the pandemic. Our economy is back on track.. Bombay Stock Exchange, has witnessed an incredible " Bull Run " with Sensex touching 60 K !!! Nifty ( Top 50 ) has secured 17850, recorded the highest closing !!!! We are slowing, but decisively inching towards a 5 trillion economy... In local jargon, the economy is fast getting back on its track.. The results will positively filter across the entire nation.. These anarchists are not happy with the revival, they want to create a climate of fear to destabilise India !!
