Panaji – BJP is busy in pleasing Crony Capitalists while pushing their agenda of ” Savkaari” and hence BJP Government dont understand the hardships of “Xetkaris”. The love of BJP for ” Rich & Mighty” made BJP State President Sadanand Shet Tanawade politically blind and hence he failed to see hundreds of farmers from all across the State who participated in Anti-Farmers Protest Rally organised by Congress Party at Raj Bhvan charged GPCC president Girish Chodankar addressing Kissan Melava at Rivona organised by Congress Kissan Cell .
Congress Party is committed to resolve the issues faced by the farmers. Our national leader Rahul Gandhi is agitating on road with the farmers of Punjab and Haryana. We will continue our fight till anti-farmers laws are withdrawn by the Government stated Girish Chodankar.
If BJP Government really had some sensitivity towards the farmers than why the Union Minister Prakash Jawdekar who visited Goa last week did not meet Sugarcane, Cashew, Areca Nut, Coconut and Paddy growing farmers to understand the problems faced by them questioned Digambar Kamat. He said that with no guarantee of Minimum Support Price, Farmers will be left at the mercy of rich business tycoons. The gameplan of BJP is to empower rich and mighty he said.
As the new law has removed Onion, Potatoes, Cereals and Pulses from the Essential Commodities list, the prices of these items will be completely under control of stockists which will lead to sky rocketting rates warned Digambar Kamat.
The oldest ally of BJP from Punjab Akali Dal has now resigned from NDA protesting against the new Farm Law. BJP leaders must introspect on the same and learn lessons said Digambar Kamat.
The insensitive BJP Government’s lack of concern for the poor people was exposed when Prime Minister Narendra Modi admitted in Loksabha that his government was not having any data of the migrants who died on the way while walking miles and miles returning back to their homes after the nationwide lockdown was announced. The anti-people BJP is living in Virtual World of glorifying Narendra Modi and hence cant hear the cries of common man charged South Goa MP Francisco Sardinha.
Congress Party created projects like Railways, Telecommunications, Roadways after Independence and worked hard to develop connectivity all across the country. It is during Congress regime that ” Green Revolution” and “White Revolution” took place which boosted the agriculture sector and energised the farmers. Institutions like AIIMS, Bhaba Atomic Research Centre, SAIL, IIM etc were established by Congress Government with long terms vision stated Francisco Sardinha.
Convenor of Kissan Melava Abhijit Dessai in his speech demanded that BJP Union Minister Prakash Jawdekar who said that the new law will put an end to “Dalals” in agricultural sector must clarify whether senior BJP leader Prakash Velip who openly said that the new law will result in direct loss of Rs. 9 crores revenue to Goa is a “Dalal”.
The overwhelming response received for this Kissan Melava will send shivers in BJP camp and this is begining of end of BJP rule stated local farmer Bostiao Simoes.
Congress party is committed to fight for the rights of poor and common man and will fight more aggressively in the days ahead to bring justice to the people said Sanguem Block Congress President Josephin Rodrigues while addressing the gathering.
VKSS Society Chairaman & Ex Sarpanch Jose Aphonso also criticised Modi Government for anti-farmer laws. GPCC secretary Rajanikat Naik welcomed the gathering while Sanguem Youth President Prakash Bhagat proposed Vote of thanks. General Secretary Amarnath Panjikar compeered the function.
Congress General Secretary Pradip Naik, Secretary Damodar Shirodkar, Councillor Avinash Shirodkar and local farmers were present for the meeting in large numbers.
