Farmers protest: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal extends support to Bharat Bandh call by farmers

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will support the farmers protesting against the new farm laws which were passed in the Parliament in September. CM said his party will support the Bharat Bandh called by farmer leaders on December 8.

Kejriwal tweeted that volunteers of AAP will join hands with farmers in the peaceful protest across the country on Tuesday. Delhi CM also requested the people to support the farmers and take part in the protests.

Kejriwal’s decision comes on the day when Union minister of state for agriculture Kailash Choudhary reiterated that the three new laws are in favour of farmers and they will benefit the farming community in many ways. Choudhary added that opposition parties in different states are responsible for misleading the farmers of the country by spreading the wrong information about the laws.

AAP leader and Delhi environment minister Gopal Rai also extended his support to farmers protesting against the new farm laws. Rai said the central government is forcefully trying to implement the new laws by showing them the benefits of the laws when there are actually none.

Rai said this is not just the farmers’ fight but the fight for all countrymen. He further said India is an agricultural country and if farmers are unhappy then the entire country is affected. Rai appealed to all the people to join the Bharat Bandh on December 8.

Rai said AAP’s workers and volunteers in every state will participate in the Bharat Bandh on December 8 in solidarity with the farmers.

Farmers are protesting against the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.

According to the reports, farmers would occupy toll plazas on December 8, the day of Bharat Bandh, if their demands for repealing the agri-marketing laws are not met.
