Bahujan Samaj Party today organized a massive protest march in support of the farmers’ movement in Nawanshahr in which BSP Punjab President Sardar Jasvir Singh Garhi ji participated. The district level dharna was led by state General Secretary Dr. Nachhatar Pal, who took out a huge march from Ambedkar Chowk to the Deputy Commissioner’s office raising slogans in bad weather. Addressing a massive blue flag gathering at Ambedkar Chowk, Garhi said the BJP government at the Center is anti-farmer, anti-backward and anti-minority.
After the farmers’ protest march at the Red Fort on 26 January, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that he was just a phone cal away from resolving the farmers’ issue, while six months had passed on 26 July. The behavior of the BJP government is worse than that of Kumbhakaran who slept for six months and kept awake for six months. Today, when the BSP-SAD have stalled the functioning of Parliament for six days by bringing adjournment motion during the current session, the BSP has come out on the streets of Punjab to wake up the central government.Taking a jibe at the Congress, Mr. Garhi said that the statement of the newly-appointed President of Punjab, Mr. Navjot Singh Sidhu that thirsty farmers are coming to the well of the Congress, is highly condemnable. The anti-farmer face of the Congress came to the fore when Cabinet Minister Charanjit Channi got Navjot Singh Sidhu to file a police complaint against farmers on his side when he reached Morinda and Chamkaur Sahib.
He said it was even more condemnable that the Congress party did not support the adjournment motion during the current session of Parliament, when the BSP and Shiromani Akali Dal wanted to draw nationwide attention to farmers’ issues. However, the country’s constitution stipulates that one-tenth of the members may be discussed by the Speaker of the Parliament, the Parliamentary Secretary and the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs. But instead of doing anything in the Parliament, Congress is doing useless demonstration on agricultural equipments (tractors).
On this occasion, light in-charge Dr. Nachhatar Pal and Jarnail Singh Wahid said that BSP Shiromani Akali Dal is standing in favor of farmers in Parliament as well as on the road.
