Early Times Report
SUNDERBANI, Jan 10: Terming the recent direction to evict the farmers from the agricultural lands in their cultivating possessions for decades a? arbitrary, irrational & in violation of various existing laws, norms and human rights, JKPCC Chief Spokesperson Ravinder Sharma has said that Congress would oppose this dictatorial order in a big way including taking up the same with Rahul Gandhi during upcomming Bhart jodo yatra în J &K, to save thoudands of landless, small and marginal farmers from getting uprooted.
Addressing a press conference here today on the issue of recent government directions to evict all occupants of government lands within three months, Sharma said that landless, petty, small and marginal farmers in cultivating possessions of different kinds of agricultural and residentisl lands appurtinent thereto, are being threatened forcible eviction by the field staff, if they failed to surrender the same within no time.
The people especially farmers are restless for the past couple of days, since issuance of dictatorial order, a? their Girdawris have been already erased unilaterally în recent years, without adhering to the norms especially following the principles of natural justice.
There is one 'rule &lathi' to deal with the landless, smal &marginal farmers and for a well off occupants who have sufficient land holdings on their own and have illegally occupied large chunks of state or custodian land, who certainly form a separate category ?o be dealt under law of land.
However the Congress stands shoulder to shoulder with the landless, smal & marginalised farmers who are in peaceful, uninterrupted and long duration possessions of such lands & we demand framing of a fair land policy in the matter and till then roll back of the arbitrary and irrational direction, failing which there will be a strong, sustained non violent "satyagreh " on the pattern of farmers agitation in the country, he added.
Sharma said that past governments always framed laws and norms to the benefits of landless, small and marginal farmers &tillers but the present dispensation is hell bent to crush the poor people especially farmers
Flanked by Senior leaders of the party and farmers, he referred to previous laws and norms of past governments in the favour of tillers, small and marginal farmers like Big Landed estates abolition act 1952,C.O. - 578-C of 1954, LB-6, LB- 7, of 1958, S -432 of 1966,Agrarian Reforms Act 1976, CM guidelines 1971 and several others but this government is the only exception which is trying to hit the poorest of the poor especially the farmers, who are "Anndata" of all.
