Two years of farmers’ protest: Farmer Union to take out march to Raj Bhavans

In the attack by the farmers union on the government, the farmer leader also alleged that the government is trying to protect the corporates and also added that the government has proved that they have no intention of fulfilling the demands of the farmer’s union.



The Farmer Union will hold a march to Raj Bhavan across the nation to commemorate two years since the call of their protest against the three contentious farm laws which were subsequently scrapped after the farmers protested against them. The farmer leaders while talking to the media also stated that the march will also protest against the unfulfilled promises that were made by the government to the farmers.

The Farmers union claims that the government despite the written promise to hold discussions with the farmers and bring legislation for the minimum support price (MSP), the government didn’t fail to deliver their promises.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha leader Hannan Mollah, while talking to the press, stated that the government gave the farmers in writing and agreed to their demands, however, nothing has been done yet. Mollah further added that the government has proved it is a traitor who has cheated the farmers of the country.

In the attack by the farmers union on the government, the farmer leader also alleged that the government is trying to protect the corporates and also added that the government has proved that they have no intention of fulfilling the demands of the farmer’s union.

The farmer leaders also stated that the government has neither formed a committee on the issue of MSP and they have neither retracted the allegedly fake cases charged against the farmers during the time of farmer protest.

While talking to the press, another farmer leader Abhimanyu Singh Khokar stated that the farmers have realized that government has no intention of fulfilling the demands made by the farmers and also added that they only claimed to meet our demands to hush down the protest and bring an end to the movement.

Khokar also suggested the need for another movement by the farmers.

Farmer Protest

After the 3 farm laws were passed in the parliament through an ordinance, the farmer’s insecurities against the three acts took a palpable turn as thousands of farmers started the agitation against the three contentious farm laws in 2020.

The movement by the farmers became a big rift between the farmers and the government due to the farm acts. After the farmer’s relentless protest against the government and their farm laws continued on for a year, the Modi-Government on November 19 2021 decided to repeal the three contentious laws and promised to meet the demands of the farmers.
