New Delhi, Dec 11 : Amid protests from sugarcane farmers in western parts of Uttar Pradesh, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday wrote to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and demanded better price for the sugarcane.

Priyanka Gandhi wrote: “UP government has not raised the sugarcane price this year. I am surprised that in the last crushing season also, the prices were not raised. While your Government has raised the rates of electricity, fertilizers, but the sugarcane price has not been raised, even though the cost of labour has also increased”.

“The farmers are not getting back their input cost and I request you to raise the price of the sugarcane in view of the distress in the community”, she said.

The State government has fixed the sugarcane prices at Rs 315 per quintal and it has remain unchanged from the last year.

The farmers’ Unions in the state are up in arms against this. They have blocked many arterial roads in Meerut, which is the highest sugarcane producing region in the state. The protesters blocked the main highway leading to the Meerut-Karnal road and the arterial road adjacent to Muzaffarnagar.

On Saturday the state government announced that the rates will not be changed this year also, to the disappointment of the farmers. The farmers are also worried that their dues of the previous year have also not been paid.

RCP Singh JDU

Delhi: The Janta Dal United JD(U) to support Citizenship Amendment Bill in Rajya Sabha. JD(U) MP Ram Chandra Prasad Singh says the Bill is not affecting any rights of Indian citizens.

JD(U) member Ram Chandra Prasad Singh said his party supports the Bill. “I am supporting this Bill. I was really amazed about this Bill and what is being discussed in the House.”

He claimed that the bill is simple that the people who were persecuted due to religion will be given citizenship rights and protected.

“Who all are citizens of India have equal rights… India has its own culture,” he said, adding that people are unnecessarily making a hue and cry of it.

He also stressed that India had three Presidents hailing from minority communities. “But we all know what is happening in Pakistan with minorities,” Singh said.

Talking about his party, Singh said: “We support brotherhood. In this country, if anything happens in the name of religion we will never be behind it. We all are Indians.”

Union Home Minister Amit Shah moved the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 in the Upper House on Wednesday saying that the Bill is a ray of hope for minority people living in a very critical situation in India’s three neighbouring countries – Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh – as well as for those who came to India but have not been given citizenship.

The Bill was cleared in the Lok Sabha on Monday.

Dr K Keshav Rao

Delhi: We oppose this bill as it is anti-Muslim. It is wrong to say that India was divided on the basis of religion during Partition. We were not. What is the fear in Assam today?

The fear is that some may not remain a citizen of this nation. We agree that persecuted religious minorities should be protected. But no community should be excluded.

This bill is against Muslims. It cannot be read in isolation. It has to be read along with the NRC.
