Agartala, November 24, 2022: The Sanyukta Kisan Morcha is ready to give a befitting reply marking the second anniversary of the historic farmers’ movement as a day of betrayal by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government.
According to the decision of the central committee of the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha, the farmers of All India will deliver the six demand charters through the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha to the President through the Governor on November 26.
Kisan Morcha, also affiliated to Tripura state, will conduct a Raj Bhavan Abhiyan on that day. Central trade unions will also join in this drive. Student youth women’s organizations will join. Convenor of the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha, Tripura Pabitra Kar announced this in a press conference on Thursday and explained the context of this program and said that this Raj Bhavan campaign is taking place at a very important time.
In contrast to the demands of the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha, the Morcha feels that on the one hand, the hardworking people cannot sit down when the price of essential commodities has gone beyond their purchasing power. Added to that is the widespread terrorism of the ruling party in the state.
In the face of this multi-pronged attack, the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha vows to continue the fight. The condition of the country is also the same. The central food storage has reached the bottom and therefore the export has been stopped completely. The distribution of rice worth five rupees to the poor in the ration shop is about to stop.
Sanyukta Kisan Morcha, Tripura thinks that the state is currently facing a dire agricultural crisis, which is directly due to the irresponsibility and failure of the government. The government should take responsibility. That is why the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha will not sit down because the Morcha is sure that there will be shortage of food crops in this state and the country. The cost of which has to be paid by the common man.
In this regard, the Kisan Morcha, Tripura has repeatedly said this to certain authorities at various times, but no one accepted it. Today, the Government of India has accepted it.
Announcing that the day will be celebrated in Tripura as well, Kar said that there will be processions and gatherings in all the subdivisions of the state except Agartala. After that, the demand certificate will be handed over to the subdivisional magistrate.
After that, the subdivisional ruler will send the memorandum to the governor. He said the demands were: Legislation on minimum support price (C2+50% as per Swami Nathan recommendation) in agriculture; Abolition of electricity bill; Dismissal of Minister Ajay Mishra Teni from the Union Cabinet and farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri for killing a journalist. Harsh punishment for the accused minister’s son Ashish Mishra Teni; To withdraw the false cases filed during the farmers’ movement; and To compensate the families of the farmers who were martyred during the farmers’ movement.
On November 26, 2020, he joined the Kisan Morcha in Delhi, calling for repeal of the Agrarian Act, cancellation of electricity bills, minimum support price for crops. Central trade unions called for strike, farmers called for village shutdown. Declared war and carried out massive persecution. Despite this, the farmers’ march reached the Delhi border on 26 November 2020. The movement continued till 19 November 2021 by blocking the borders of Tikri, Singhu and Gazipur. On that day, the farmers’ movement surrendered and the Modi government was forced to withdraw the Agriculture Act. But as promised, other He has betrayed the farmers of the country by refusing to accept the demand.
This is the program to inform the government through the President.Apart from this, the Assam government has given problems to the betel nut and agar farmers of the state. They are blocking the entry of betel nut and agar into Assam by making unjust allegations.
