Copies of agricultural laws burned on Holika Dahan
Farmers camping on Delhi’s borders burned copies of the three new agricultural laws of the center during Holika Dahan on Sunday. The United Kisan Morcha said in a statement that the protesting farmers celebrated Holi on the borders and ensured that their agitation would continue till the agricultural laws were repealed. The Front said that on April 5, ‘FCI Bachao Divas’ will be celebrated and the offices of the Food Corporation of India (FCI) will be cordoned off from 11 am to 5 pm across the country.
The statement said that the government has indirectly made several efforts to abolish the Minimum Support Price (MSP) and the Public Distribution System (PDS). In the last few years, the budget of FCI has also decreased. Recently, FCI has also changed the rules for procurement of crops.
SKM condemned the passage of the Public Property Compensation Recovery Bill-2021 in the Haryana Legislative Assembly and said that its purpose is to suppress the movements. It may be noted that the Manohar Lal Khattar government of Haryana has recently passed a bill under which if farmers tamper with or damage the government property during protests, then to compensate them in such a situation Money will be recovered only. Farmers are constantly opposing this bill.
