Demonstration of farmers against MSP: various Farmer Sangathan (Shetkari Sangathan) have become aggressive again. Farmers’ organizations are preparing for an agitation on the issue of implementing the Guaranteed Price (MSP) Act. 200 farmer organizations will gather in Delhi to use the technique of putting pressure on the central government. There will be meetings of farmers’ organizations for three days from October 7 to October 9 in Delhi. All these organizations will come together under the leadership of VM Singh. Singh has parted ways with the United Kisan Morcha.
All these farmer organizations are coming together and trying to put pressure on the central government. These farmer organizations are insisting on passing the Guaranteed Price Act. Farmer organizations say that despite giving assurances, the government has not taken any concrete steps regarding the Guarantee Price Act. VM Singh has tried to bring all the farmer organizations on one platform. There is a possibility of a big show of power by the farmers in Delhi. It has been told that this time farmers from 28 states will also be present in Delhi.
Farmers union in the field against the government
The central government had said that it would constitute a committee regarding the Guarantee Act. But no committee has been formed yet. This was opposed by the United Kisan Morcha. Farmer leaders told that only those who made new agricultural laws have been given place in the committee. Due to this, now other farmer organizations have also come against the government. Meanwhile, early last month, the United Kisan Morcha had called a Kisan Mahapanchayat at Jantar Mantar. Farmers from different states had reached Delhi. The protest was against the MSP and the Lakhimpur Kheri case. He demanded that the loans of all the farmers of the country should be waived off. The farmers also demanded to increase the base price of sugarcane.
Farmers unions demanded MSP act
After the central government made three agriculture laws, farmers took to the streets against this decision. The farmers were protesting on the border of Delhi for a year. Bowing to the protests of these farmers, the central government withdrew three agricultural laws. Sugarcane farmers are legally bound to pay the FRP prescribed by the central government. Similarly every agricultural commodity produced by the farmer should legally get the guaranteed price declared by the government. Farmers’ organizations also demanded that a Guaranteed Price Act should be made for this. However, the central government has not yet approved this demand. It is expected that the farmers’ organizations will again protest against the demand of MSP Act.
