Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Friday termed the Centre’s decision to repeal all three farm laws as much delayed but a welcome step. CM Channi, however said had Prime Minister Narendra Modi taken this decision much earlier several precious lives would have been saved.
Blaming the Centre for thrusting these farm laws arbitrarily on the farmers without taking them into confidence, CM Channi categorically said, “The BJP led Central government should admit on record to have made an Himalayan blunder in bringing these bills for which it hardly bothered to even relent for the past one and half years.”
Notably, the farmers’ agitation on the Delhi borders and across the state has so far claimed nearly 700 lives during unparalleled struggle to safeguard their rights to secure livelihood and future of their generations.
CM Channi said that incidents like Lakhimpur Kheri which happened during the struggle has put a slur on the fair name of democracy and the people will never forgive BJP led Central government for its misdeeds.
Pointing out further, CM Channi said that now when the Prime Minister has announced to withdraw these draconian farm laws he should compensate the farmers adequately for the humungous losses of life and property suffered by them. Likewise, he also sought compensation for the state on account of financial and property losses during the Kisan Morcha. He, however, said that state government has already provided government jobs to the victim families of farmers besides financial assistance of Rs.5 lakh to each family of the deceased farmer, who sacrificed lives in the farm agitation.
CM Channi also asked the Prime Minister to immediately announce a financial package to relieve farmers and labourers reeling under the huge burden of debt. He also asked the Centre to make its stand crystal clear on Minimum Support Price and public procurement of farmers’ crops.
CM Channi, while describing it as victory of people, said that the farmers have faced several hardships including the vagaries of weather to brave the mighty Union government. He said that though the Union government left no stone unturned to harass, humiliate and demotivate the farmers but following the footsteps of the great Gurus who have taught to us to fight against injustice, oppression and tyranny, the farmers continued their struggle relentlessly. CM Channi said that this decision is outcome of the long and zealous struggle of the farmers and will be scripted in golden words in annals of history.
