Activists of the Left-backed organisations in Tripura on Wednesday staged a massive rally to express solidarity towards the farmers, who are protesting at the Delhi border areas since last week.
Workers of Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), Tribal Youth Federation (TYF), All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) and Tripura Khet Majdur Union (TKMU) took out a rally in Agartala.
The rally started from Melarmeth and traversed across different parts of Agartala city.
Senior CPI-M leader Pabitra Kar said, “Farmers are protesting against the recently passed three farm-bills. The farmers spoke to the Centre, but it was fruitless. The farmer’s organizations have been demanding to roll back the bills.”
Notably, in many parts of the Country, people have started expressing their solidarity towards the farmer movement which is underway at the Delhi-Noida border.
Meanwhile, Secretary of the DYFI said, “The entire world has now understood that a law has been brought which is against the interest of the farmers who provide food to the President, the richest person and also the poorest.”
“We demand that the Government must listen to the farmers who produce food for the people of the Country.”
The farmers’ protest against the three agricultural sector laws passed by the central government in the monsoon session entered seventh day on Wednesday.
Demonstrations were being staged at Sant Nirankari Samagam ground in Burari on the outskirts of Delhi, besides the border areas.
The farmers are protesting against The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
