Aghore-Pabitra Selected As President- Secretary Of AIKS Tripura

Veteran CPIM leader Aghore Debbarma and Pabitra Kar selected as President and Secretary of All India Kisan Sabha, AIKS respectively. On Wednesday AIKS organized its 21st state conference at Town Hall. Addressing the conference polit bureau member Manik Sarkar said “this immensely benefits foreign and domestic corporates to reap super-profits, imposing misery both on the farmers and the people. The Minimum Support Price is bound to be abolished. Though very shoddily implemented, the MSP, nevertheless provided some security of income to the farmers”.
Sarkar also alleged that amendments to Essential Commodities Act will lead to “scope for large scale hoarding creating artificial food scarcity and price rise”. “The proposals for `land pooling’ and legalising the contract system with benefits to agribusinesses will completely destroy traditional farming. India’s food security is at stake,”¬†added Manik Sarkar.
