Oppo Support For Farmers


It seems there is a rush of political elements to come in support of the farmers, who are on war path.

A day after OPCC President Niranjan Patnaik spending night among the agitating farmers, the leaders of BJP and other opposition parties today openly extended their supports to the agrarians who are scheduled to hold a mega show in the state capital on Monday.

The farmers under the Naba Nirman Krushak Sangathan (NNKS) banner will attend the mega convention demanding 3Ps (Price, prestige and pension)

However, the State Administration has clamped prohibitory order along the National Highway, on the outskirts of the city, to block the entry of the leaders and activists of the outfit into the city.

The NNKS activists are on a pada yatra to Bhubaneswar from Cuttack and Khurda sides. The prohibitory order has been imposed at Hansapal on the road to Cuttack and Tamando, connecting Khurda.

The pada yatra from Khurda is led by the former Congress MP Pradip Majhi, and the rally from Cuttack by NNKS National Convener Akshaya Kumar and former Kendrapara MP Baijayant Panda.

The State Government has no concern towards the farmers despite repeated demands. “We are on the way to Bhubaneswar. If the Government fails to fulfill the demands of the farmers by tomorrow, they will paralyse Odisha and the state capital,” Mr.Majhi said.

The NNKS has been demanding minimum of support price (MSP) of paddy at Rs 5000 per quintal, monthly pension at Rs 5000 for the youth and Rs 1500 for the elderly.

They also alleged that the State Government since last 18 years has not constructed a single mega irrigation project to irrigate agricultural field.

Jay Panda condemned the attempts being made by the State Government to throttle the voice of the farmers.

Meanwhile, BJP has also targeted Odisha Government for its failure to address the grievances of the farmers in the State.

“We support the farmers’ agitation. Already Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken lot of measures to ‘Double The Farmers’ Income” in the country.
