New Delhi, November 20Thousands of farmers from across the country assembled here today, and demanded a one-time total farm debt waiver and remunerative prices for their produce.
At a ‘Kisan Mukti Sansad’ or farmers’ liberation parliament, two “bills” were passed for debt and remunerative prices for their produce.
But what happens to farmers of Karnataka, Maharashtra, Punjab or Tamil Nadu?” CPI leader Atul Anjan said.
The protesting farmers have alleged that the ruling BJP has done nothing for the farmers and instead has been using them to meet its political interests.
The gathering was organised under the banner of the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC), comprising 180 peasant organisations from all over the country.
