Panaji: In its ongoing protest against the farm bills and supporting farmers, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee Kissan Cell has organised a Kissan Melava on Saturday October 10 at 4.30 pm at Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Mandap at Rivona, informed Congress Kissan Cell convenor Abhijit Dessai.
He was accompanied by South Goa District Congress member Chanda Velip and Snaguem Block Youth Congress presidnet Prakash Bhagat.
Alleging that the BJP is ignoring the plight of farmers Dessai said, “The anti-farmers laws brought in by Modi Government are opposed by various farmers organisations across the Country. Unfortunately, BJP government is ignoring the issues raised by farmers. Congress Party will work towards giving justice to farmers.”
Hitting out Union Minister Prakash Javadekar and the state government Dessai said, “The betrayer of Goa on Mhadei issue Union Minister Prakash Javadekar who came to Goa to make BJP propoganda had no time to listen to issues of sugarcane farmers, cashew farmers and others. Goa Agriculture Minister Babu Kavlekar who tried to defend the visit of Union Minister must come to Rivona and listen to the grievances of the hardworking farmers.”
GPCC president Girish Chodankar, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat, Member of Parliament Francisco Sardinha, Congress MLA’s and Office Bearers will attend the Melava informed Abhijit Dessai.
