Bilkis Dadi Detension

Shaheen Bagh activist Bilkis ‘Dadi’ was detained and escorted from Delhi-Haryana’s Singhu border on Tuesday when she attempted to join hundreds of farmers protesting against the new farm bills.

“We are the daughters of farmers. We’ll go to support farmers’ protest today. We will raise our voice, the government should listen to us,” the elderly activist had said earlier in the day.

Bilkis ‘Dadi’ had made headlines last year when she along with other women residents of south Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh staged a sit-in against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bills which grew into a massive movement against the legislation seen as anti-Muslim.

At the peak of the protest in January this year, several Sikh farmers from unions in Punjab had turned up in Shaheen Bagh to lend support and set up a langar to provide hot meals to those on protest.

Members of more than 30 farmer unions have been camped at Delhi borders for six days now demanding a rollback of farm bills they allege will end the minimum support price (MSP) system and leave farmers at the mercy of corporates.

Small growers fear the new laws will make them vulnerable to competition from big business, and that they could eventually lose price supports for staples such as wheat and rice.

India’s vast farm sector contributes nearly 15% of the country’s $2.9 trillion economy and employs around half its 1.3 billion people.

Rahul Gandhi

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday criticised the government’s approach towards handling the ongoing farmers’ protest against the three newly-passed agriculture laws.

“Our providers are protesting on streets and those who lie are giving speeches on the TV,” Gandhi tweeted in Hindi. “We are indebted to the farmers. We can only repay by giving them their rights, not by insulting them or using lathis and tear gas against them.”

On Monday too, Gandhi had released a video message urging common people and Congress workers to extend help and support to the agitating farmers.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday criticised Gandhi calling him a “confused leader”.

“Rahul Gandhi is the most confused leader in the world,” Tiwari told PTI, at Uttar Pradesh’s Sultanpur city. “He does not know about farm laws passed recently. The farm laws that Parliament has passed recently have been accepted by all the states of the country except the Congress government of Punjab.”

The BJP leader also accused Congress and other opposition parties of provoking farmers against the new laws.

The farmers’ protest at Tikri and Singhu borders of the national Capital entered the sixth day on Tuesday. Thirty-six farmers’ unions have accepted the Centre’s invitation for early talks at 3 pm on Tuesday in Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan in an attempt to find a resolution to the escalating protests.
