Farm bills govt’s conspiracy to defeat Green Revolution: Congress

agriculture reforms bill

New Delhi, Sep 18 : Even as the Lok Sabha passed two of the contentious agriculture reforms bill, the Congress on Thursday upped its ante against the Narendra Modi government over the issue, terming it a conspiracy to defeat the Green Revolution.

Slamming the government, Congress leader Gaurav Gogoi said: “This government has been eyeing, how they can take the farmers’ land to benefit their capitalist friends, whether is the Land Acquisition Act, whether in the industrial system through weakening the labour courts and now this three-pronged attack on the Indian agricultural system through the two bills on farming – one related to APMC, the other one is related to contract farming and the third bill which is on essential commodities… a three-pronged attack on the Indian farmers.”

Noting the government says that this is a boon for farmers, he said: “Are farmers of India foolish that they don’t understand the bill. If this bill was in the benefit of Indian farmers, why are the farmers are out on the streets? Why are the farmers in Haryana being beaten by the police?”

Targeting the government, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said the Modi government is akin to Covid-19 pandemic as it is attacking lives and livelihoods of farmers.

“It is attacking farmers and farm labourers and was bartering agriculture at the doorsteps of crony capitalists,” he said.

“The draconian laws on agriculture will be a death knell for the future of farming in India,” he said, alleging that the BJP-led government is hell-bent upon destroying the farmer and was bartering the agriculture at the altar of a handful of crony capitalists.

Surjewala also claimed that 62 crore farmers and farm labourers have been agitating across India and over 250 farmers organisations are sitting on protest, on hunger strikes and are demonstrating across the length and breadth of India.

He accused the government of dictatorially subverting the “voice of farmers” representatives inside the Parliament and has unleashed a draconian “lathi-danda regime” on protesting farming community.

“The farmers and labourers will never forget the conspiracy of the Modi government to convert the disaster confronting the farmers into an opportunity for the capitalists under the garb of pandemic. The next generations of BJP will have to face the consequences of these anti-farmer misdeeds of the government,” Surjewala said.

Meanwhile, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said that the interest of farmers and farm labourers cannot be subjugated and be subservient to the “draconian majority” of the BJP in Parliament.

“The Congress shall continue to take on the dark design of a draconian, dictatorial and anti-farmer Modi government, both inside and outside the Parliament… We shall continue to voice the pain and suffering of teeming millions,” he said.

The Congress, along with many other opposition parties as well as NDA constituent Akali Dal, had been opposing the three farm Bills which were earlier brought in as Ordinances. All three – the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 and Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020 – have been passed by the Lok Sabha.

Nationl Unemployment Day

New Delhi, Sep 17 : The Indian Youth Congress (IYC) and the National Students Union of India (NSUI) on Thursday marked the 70th birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as ‘national unemployment day’.

IYC National President Srinivas B.V. said that the wrong policies of the central government have made the youth of the country unemployed.

He said, due to this, unemployment in the country is continuously increasing. “That is why today the IYC celebrated Modi’s birthday as national unemployment day to attract the government’s attention towards rising unemployment,” the IYC leader said.

Targeting the Prime Minister, the IYC leader said, “Modiji, Parliament is yours right now ,but the roads are still with us.” He said, Modi came to power promising to provide employment to two crore people every year but instead of giving jobs, demonetisation, GST and lockdown snatched the jobs of 120 million youth.

Meanwhile, NSUI observed Modi’s birthday by selling ‘pakodas’. NSUI volunteers sold ‘pakodas’ to send a message to the government that the educated youth of the country are suffering due to unemployment under this government.

NSUI President Neeraj Kundan slammed the government for destroying the economy. He said, “This is the first time in the history of independent India that young Indians are forced to observe a Prime Minister’s birthday as national unemployment day.”

Kundan said that the unemployment rate is at a 45-year high, but Modi doesn’t care. “The Prime Minister conducts ‘Mann ki Baat’ every month but he has never spoken about unemployment. This is because it is Ambani-Adani’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ and not the one of the youth and students of India,” he added.
