BISHNAH, Sept 27: Hundreds of farmers of Bishnah areas of Jammu division flanked by All J&K Kissan Congress members and leaders took out a massive demonstration against the Two Farm Bills passed in the Parliament.
The protest was organized by Shashi Sharma PCC secretary and Dwarka Choudhary Chief-Whip MC Jammu and Kissan Congress Committee Bishnah under the leadership of Ch Gharu Ram, Chairman JK Kissan Congress as a part of Kissan Congress initiated unprecedented ‘Satyagraha’ against the BJP led Government for amending Anti-Farmer bill 2020 on day three.

Gharu Ram, while leading the ‘Satyagraha’, said that already suffering farmers in J&K have been pushed to more devastation by the twin anti-farmers bills. “The farmers’ income and the price of produce will be directly controlled and decided by the big corporate houses whom the farmers will have no contact and control over the decision of deciding Minimum Support Price (MSP),” Gharu said. The protesting famers said that their Mandi system of buying and selling of produce will totally vanish and farmers will be forced to sell their crop production at mere costs hence leading them to the slaves of the corporate houses. They said that they are dependent on the farming land and it is their only source of income and cannot compromise on their livelihood leading them solely dependent on the big corporate houses. “Government is upto selling the farmers to the corporate sector and we cannot let it happen,” the agitating farmers said.
Gharu Ram said that these farm bills are not acceptable by Congress Party besides farmers of the nation and the government must ‘declare in writing’ the MSP of farmers’ produce prior to handing over to these corporate houses and repeal the twin anti-farmers Bills.
Gharu Ram asserted that the ‘Satyagraha’ shall continue till October 2 in which several protests and rallies will be organized to mark resentment against the BJP government for betraying farmers of the country.
