JKPCC expresses solidarity with farmers

Urges Central Govt to fulfill demands of farmers

Srinagar, Dec 08: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Tuesday expressed solidarity with the agitating farmers and urged the Centre Govt to fulfill their demands.

According to a statement issued to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), senior party leaders and workers in a function organized at Srinagar party office expressed solidarity with the agitating farmers and extended full support to Bharat Band call given by them and blamed the Centre Govt for adopting anti-farmer attitude by bringing new laws without evolving consensus or taking on board the farmers, who are not satisfied with these laws.

Senior party leaders Bashir Ahmad Magrey, Surinder Singh Channi, Adul Gani Khan, Mohd Sultan while addressing the party workers lashed out at Centre Govt for not listening to the agitating farmers and said that farmers are feeding the people by dropping their blood and sweat, but this is very unfortunate and shameful that Govt is tactfully ignoring their agitation, as if nothing has happened.

“You cannot hide your failures by suppressing the agitation, you have to come clean on new laws,” Congress leaders told Centre. They said Centre is punishing the farmers under the garb of new laws and hell bent upon to benefit some industrialists by bringing new laws.

Congress party demands that the Farmers should be heard and their demanded must be filled without any further loss of time, they said. The Centre Govt is ignorant and don’t want to listen anything, which is not going to end the farmers’ agitation rather the agitation will prolong which is not in the interest of Nation, they added. On this occasion, Congress workers and held protest demonstration against the new Farming laws. Those who addressed included Mir Rovais, Saira, Shameema Mir, Reyaz Misgar and others
