New Delhi, June 13 : The All India Kisan Sabha, a Left-leaning farmer wing, on Tuesday slammed Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for not providing any financial help from the centre for farm loan waiver and said it will burn the Minister’s effigy.
“Farmers are not begging for any favour but are demanding their rights. The farmers are indebted due to the wrong policies of the government,” the AIKS said in a statement.
Not only this, the AIKS said that farmers will burn an effigy of Finance Minister on Friday to protest against his “anti-farmer” stand.
AIKS is the farmers’ front of the undivided Communist Party of India.
It said the Central government had failed to ensure the M.S. Swaminathan Commission’s recommendation of 50 per cent profit above the production cost for all crops.
