Farmers hit Parliament street, demanding fair price & loan waiver

Farmers hit Parliament street, demanding fair price & loan waiver

New Delhi, Nov 20 (UNI) Thousands of farmers from across the country converged on Parliament Street here on Monday, protesting against what they called 'non-fulfillment' of promises made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the loan waivers and Minimum Support Price.
The ' Kisan Mukti Sansad,' stressed on two demands that include 'right price for their input and profitable price' and 'complete loan waiver', as the poor farmers were committing suicides having no other option left.
'PM Modi had promised farmers during his Lok Sabha poll campaign that if elected, farmers would get good prices for their crops ie one and a half times of the input price and the loan waivers for the debt ridden farmers,' said VM Singh, national president Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Party.
He said that for two days the farmers will hold their 'Mahila Kisan Sansad' here, as women were the ones who were in the majority as far as working in the field is concerned and they need to come on the forefront.
He further said that farmers from Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh have gathered here to support the cause, leaving behind the elections that are to take place in the respective states.
Member of Parliament Raju Shetti, former MP and Politburo Member of CPI(M) S Ramachandran Pillai , Yogendra Yadav and other leaders were also present on the occasion to extend their support to the farmers' cause.
Farmers, who earlier staged their demonstrations at Jantar Mantar, also joined the Kisan Sansad.
According to the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC), ' a steady rise in input costs, like fuel, pesticides and fertilisers and even water, and slashing of subsidies by the government' were some of the key factors behind cost versus income imbalance, presently being faced by the peasants.
One of the farmers from UP while speaking to reporters, said farming these days has become a profession with no profit and moreover, it is becoming a burden.
