It's sad why there is enough money for setting up useless statues and excuse the political and social criminals for theft and fraud in this nation but the government lacks funds to support the farmers who bring food to our plates.
One of the biggest morchas to have been undertaken by farmers has entered Mumbai on Sunday. A morcha of 20,000 to 25,000 starving and ailing farmers with bleeding feet plan to gherao Maharashtra Assembly and press for their demands.
Uunder the banner of Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Sabha (ABKS), a CPM- affiliated an outfit, the farmers seek complete waiver of loans and power dues and implementation of the Ms Swaminathan Committee report that spoke of giving an assured Minimum Support Price (MSP) for farmers.
“We are not demanding any thing wrong, why can’t farmers get a loan waiver, we are not looting banks and running away. What is wrong in demanding a minimum price for our crops-.”said Yogesh Pawar a farmer from Igatpuri.
Earlier, when the famers had demanded complete loan waiver, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said was not possible to fulfill it as the state did not have funds.
Let us save the ones who feed us. This petition would help them gain a little more support.
