Bengaluru: Congress extends support to peaceful Bharat Bandh of farmers

From Our Special Correspondent
Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Sep 26: The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Party has extended its support to the peaceful Bharat Bandh on Monday by the farmers seeking immediate redressal of their just demands.

The entire farming community is suffering due to the anti-farmer policies of the BJP governments at the Centre and in the State, State Congress President D K Shivakumar said and accused the Narendra Modi-led Union government as well as the BJP governments in the States of adopting anti-farmer policies while lending support to only a few crony capitalists.

Shivakumar said farmers and the working classes are suffering under the BJP rule and have forced the farmers to agitate against the Union government.

The KPCC Chief said the farmers have been agitating against the Modi government’s anti-farmer laws and policies for almost a year now and alleged that the Union government had not made genuine efforts to discuss with the agitating farmers by adopting rigid stands.

The farming community, which has contributed a lot for the country’s progress and has been feeding the nation through their hard work, has suffered during the last seven years under Modi regime, Shivakumar said extending his personal support to the Bharat Bandh call given by farmers.

"We extend the moral support from the Congress party and hope that the Bandh will be peaceful,’’ Shivakumar said.

Earlier, he participated in the ‘’Sahaya Hasta’’ (Helping Hand) programme organized by Congress leader Dinesh Gundu Rao in memory of his father and former Chief Minister R Gundu Rao to mark his 84th birth anniversary.

Congress Opposition leader in the Assembly and former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Dinesh Gundu Rao’s wife Tabu, former Mayor Padmavathi, Distritct Congress President Shekhar and other leaders participated in the function.

    If people are getting grocery despite farmers protesting and farmers are happy doing thier business then why do farmers need 3 farmers laws. Repeal those 3 laws which are unnecessary to both govt and farmers since both are happy without those laws. Life is going as there is stay from SC on those 3 laws still not implemented. It’s the land owners of those farms protesting. The ordinary people and other family members are still at work in the farms.

    Middle class never ever liked or supported bhandhs. It always added misery to their already existed pain. But this time it is different. Middle class having difficult time with highest ever rate of job losses, unemployment, petrol n diesel price raise, increased cost of living have no other way but to support bhandh, to wake Modi govt, which is least concerned about people. It is self obsessed and only greedy about power. Things are going to get worse for Middle class, if Modi govt continue to play deaf, blind and dumb.

    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. All political parties and all sections of our people should support our Farmers Bharat Bandh.

    People please think. If this protest was by farmers from all over India we would have faced a shortage of food. We have not tho. This protest is basically the distress of the middlemen. Congress is just using this as a opportunity to gain votes. Tell me why was this exact policy in Congress's manifesto few years back? They say that they are farmers protesting from 1 year how are they getting daily bread? Whose giving them economic support? Farmers won't have bank balance for 1 year without income We have only recently come out of lockdown let businesses work putting these bandh will only cause more distress to the small buisnesses

    Production of food supplies increased from last year. Now things still not come to know who the person are doing work in various fields. No shortage of any of food. Everything going normal. At border in agitation serves liquor as no option left. Looks like Middle Men much affected with new bill. Sensex first time crossed 60000 points. Is it not great. Our FOREX reserve multiplied in rapid phase. Jai Ho Modiji.

    Then why did Modi, Amit Shah, Tomar held meeting with these farmers if they are not real farmers??????……Why there is no legal action on these farmers if they are not real and to vacate the protesting venue????…….Why did your long time allies SAD, BJD, SS quit from your party?????………Why were these 3 laws not discussed before in the bill form in parliament with opposition and not sent to Select Committee for scrutiny??????….Why were 3 laws passed suddenly overnight without the knowledge of all parliament members??????. Sensex rises and falls according to DOW Jones and rupee is in decline mode. Indian traders are very afraid of artificial rise of dizzying heights of sensex which can crash any moment. It can not cope with Dow all the way. Half full vessel like you make lot of noise while the danger is just at your threshold.
