Farmers block road in West Champaran

Bettiah, 16 February (HS). Road was blocked at Fatehpur Chowk of Yogapatti today on the occasion of Gramin Bharat Bandh and industrial strike by United Kisan Morcha and Central Labor Organizations.

This bandh was done against the anti-farmer policies of the Modi government. Prime Minister Modi had promised the farmers that they would pay one and a half times the cost of the crop, give legal status to MSP, free all farmers from agricultural debt, cancel the 2020 electricity bill, give compensation to the families of 750 martyred farmers, Lakhimpur. Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni, the murderer of Kheri farmers, is being dismissed and arrested.

Leading the road jam, Bhai Pankaj of Lok Sangharsh Samiti, AITUC leader Om Prakash Kranti, Agricultural Laborer Union leader Manoj Kushwaha, Ramayan Sharma of Bihar State Kisan Sabha, Block President of Sugarcane Producers Association, M. Afal, Suvash Sah, Mainuddin, Paras Baitha, Ramayan Sharma, Harendra Dubey etc. told that today rural India is closed in the entire country. Modi government at the center is anti-farmer and anti-labor government.
