Govt must repeal farms laws as farmers & people are opposed to it: Atul Anjan

New Delhi, Noting that Supreme Court has ordered suspension of implementation of the laws temporarily, the All India Kisan Sabha National General Secretary Atul Anjan on Tuesday said that the Government must repeal these laws and need to understand that the farmers as well as people of India are opposed to these controversial farm laws.

He further said that suspending the implementation of the laws as an interim measure was welcomed but the farmer unions have not been asking for this solution, given the fact that the implementation can be reinstated at any time.

“The Supreme Court has formed a committee in its own wisdom and farmer unions have nothing much to say on this. Farmer unions reiterated that they will not participate in any such committee process”, Mr Anjan said.

It is clear that the court is being misguided by various forces even in setting up this committee and these members are known for their support to the these three Acts and have actively advocated for the same, he further said.

Mr Atul Anjan also said that the farmers unions have already rejected the proposal of the Government to set a committee earlier.

The farmers have explained in detail to Central Government that three laws will lead to corporate control over agricultural production, processing, and markets and also lead to high cost of inputs, higher debts on peasants, lower the crop prices, increase farmer losses, decrease government procurement, end PDS, raise food costs, higher farmer and agriculture worker suicides, hunger deaths, eviction from land due to debts, he added.
