Center’s Anti Farm, Labour Policy: Farmers, Workers Rocks Agartala On Friday

Protesting central farm law and labour law, farmers and workers rocks agartala on friday. Under banner of AIKSCC the protesters organized a massive rally. They demands for immediate withdrawal of such law which are against the farmers and labour class. Anger against the three central farm legislations has been simmering since September. For the last three days, thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh have been marching toward the national capital and are nearing the borders. They believe the laws will open agricultural sale and marketing outside the notified Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) mandis for farmers, remove the barriers to inter-state trade, and provide a framework for electronic trading of agricultural produce. Since the state governments will not be able to collect market fee, cess or levy for trade outside the APMC markets, farmers believe the laws will gradually end the mandi system and leave farmers at the mercy of corporates. Farmers are demanding the government guarantee MSP in writing, or else the free hand given to private corporate houses will lead to their exploitation.
