Varavara Rao asks farmers to struggle towards stopping farmer suicides

varavara-rao-14BATHINDA: Revolutionary Telegu poet and national president of ‘Revolutionary Democratic Front’ has stressed the need to have coordinated struggle for the causes of farmers at the national level. The farmer suicides could only be stopped by building a strong and joint platform at the national level to force union government to frame farmer friendly policies. He stressed the need for Punjab farmers to unite with their counterparts in other states and fight a collective struggle. Varavara Rao was here on Monday to preside over a convention organised by operation green hunt virodhi front Punjab.
While taking on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi Varavara Rao said “he(Modi) was talking of Achhe Din for everyone on assuming power but it is ensuring bad days for farmers by taking out pro corporates land acquisition bill. The farmers are committing suicides but Modi seems unmoved”. Varavara Rao said large numbers of farmers are committing suicide in Andhra, Maharastra, Punjab, Haryana and elsewhere but this trend need to be arrested.
On three day visit to Punjab, Varavara Rao pained by the economic condition of Punjab farmers who contribute immensely in national food pool, said “the Punjab farmers might be struggling hard for farming issues but their voice is not being heard at the national level and it could be gauged from the fact that Modi government not considered case of Punjab while giving relaxations to 4 states in specifications of wheat. In such a scenario the struggling Punjab farmers need to join hands with farmers of other states to build a strong force and plead its case strongly”.
He also stressed the need to take along farm labourers which are inseparable from farmers to fight for their rights. Varavara Rao accused Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal of filling its own coffers but only shedding crocodile tears for farmers but in reality doing nothing. Suggesting a different type of model for farmers, he said nearly one crore people live in Dandakarnia in Chattisgarh but the area has not witnessed even a single farmer suicide in years as they people have reformed their farming on their own and have divided lands and do cooperative type agriculture. He said if this model could be successful at the remote place why it could not be replicated elsewhere.
