Somesh Gupta started this petition to Government of India and

"If you eat today, Thank a Farmer!"
Yes, that's how important are farmers in our lives!
Putting food on our plates, working day in & out for our health & prosperity, yet being one of the most underdeveloped & unheard communities - this is the biggest irony of Independent India - majorly an agrarian economy.

The entry of corporate firms in agriculture (and banks, subsequently) not only affects the long-term sustainability, the new farm bills passed by the government threaten to take over whatever little autonomy farmers had on the crops by opening up the markets to private players who would control the prices, taking away any government responsibility - affecting both the farmers & we the end users.
The farmers may not be able to stand up to the corporates & as a result get further entrenched in the viscous cycle of poverty & helplessness.

Many of the farmer communities have been peacefully protesting against the farm laws & fighting for their rights, yet they have been ignored by the government, given no adequate representation, treated inhumanely & have had their democratic rights infringed upon.

As the farmers protest marks 100 days & the attention to the cause is fizzling, help us in supporting our farmers against crony capitalism & to get them the required support & attention.

हैरान हूँ
परेशान हूँ
दर बदर ठोकर खाकर भी
खड़े रहने वाला चट्टान हूँ
हाँलातो से जो हार ना माने
मैं वो इंसान हूँ
हाँ मैं किसान हूँ !!!

Note: If you want to donate to the cause, please do so directly to the organisations working on the scene.
