187 farmer bodies vow to take their fight to villages

New Delhi, Nov 21 (UNI) Around 200 farmers organisations on Tuesday decided to take their fights to the villages, decision that was taken at the the end of two-day Kisan Mukti Sansad (farmers’ liberation parliament) organised by All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC).
“We will go to each district in the country, take the opportunity to take feedback from the people, and tell the country what we learned from them. Once the bills come back, the working group will examine and then place the bills in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha as private members’ bills”, VM Singh, Convener of AIKSCC told UNI.
The Kisan Mukti Sansad has ‘passed’ two bills - ‘Farmers freedom from Debt Bill and Guaranteed Fair and Remunerative Prices Bill’, suggest roadmap to overcome agrarian crisis. These bills will be introduced in Parliament as private members’ bill.
The bills will be placed in Lok Sabha by Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghathan leader Raju Shetti, who left the NDA recently citing anti-farmer policies, and in Rajya Sabha by CPI(M) member KK Ragesh.
Thousands of farmers from various parts of country demanded a Farmer’ Commission to provide immediate loan waiver to indebted farmers as well as to provide continues relief to those farmers who are in distress.
The farmers also demanded the Minimum Support price agriculture products be replaced by Assured Minimum Price.
Most of the farmer organisations leaders spoke in the Kisan Sansad has criticised the Modi Government and its agriculture policy.
Dr Sunilan, executive secretary of AIKSCC and former MLA criticised that “whoever challenges the Government was being killed in police firing as they did in Mandsaur, Multai and parts of country. They are wiping out farmers and villages by imposing ‘modani’ modal on farmers.”
The Kisan Sansad also held a ‘women parliament’ which was attended by around 3000 women farmers and widows of farmers who committed suicide in various parts of the country.
Medha Patkar, leader of Narmada Bachao Andolan and National Alliance of People’s Movements (NAPM) who chaired the ‘women parliament’ said, “that the Government should take a decision on the issues raised by the farmers before the upcoming polls, we will challenge all politicians and political parties.”
The Kisan Sansad also warned government against dividing the farming community and fooling them by giving some promises during polls.
“Its united fight, the political establishment that they cannot divide entire farming community in different categories and they cannot play games that in every election time they give certain promises”, said Kiran Kumar Vissa, leader of Rythu Swarajya Vedia, a US returned IIT graduate.
“Whether the government will listen or when It will listen, is upto the wisdom of the government. If the interests of 54 per cent of the people who depend on farming are not considered, they will come together, this will alter the equation as to who will govern and be governed. And then the governments will starts to listen", Mr Vissa said.
