BJP-RSS government disempowered people of Jammu and Kashmir, says All India Kisan Sabha

The national president of All India Kisan Sabha, Dr Ashok Dhawale said that the BJP-RSS government abrogated Article 370 and 35 (A) as J&K is the only muslim majority region in the country and since then the people here have faced gradual disempowerment.

Dhawale while addressing a conference here in Srinagar said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah had snatched the rights of people of J&K in August 2019 and Article 370 and 35 (A) were constitutional guarantees to preserve rights, land and jobs of the people of J&K.

“The decision of August 5 2019 was taken on communal lines. Kashmir was targeted because J&K is the only muslim majority region across the country. Modi, Shah and Mohan Bagwat are following the British policy of divide and rule politics to create wedge between muslims, hindus, sikhs, christians and others,” said Dhawale. He said that AIKS rejects the GoI’s decision of August 5, 2019 and stands in solidarity with the people of J&K.

Dhawale reiterated the call for protests in front of Raj Bhawans across the country including J&K on November 26 urging people to participate in the protests. The day will mark two years since tens of thousands of farmers arrived at the Singhu and Tikri borders of Delhi to successfully campaign for the revocation of farm laws passed by the BJP government. He also informed that the farmers, workers and labourers from across the country will gather in New Delhi in April next year to protest around the parliament when the budget session would be going on.

The AIKS leader said that the organisation has 1.36 crore farmers as members in 25 states and UTs across the country and thus makes it an influential voice from the grassroot level.

“Apple farmers who have suffered a lot due to official apathy. The administration closed the highway for 15 days when apple produce was transported to ensure that the farmers suffer,” said Dhawale.

He reiterated that the farmers across the country have four basic demands which the ruling central government should address immediately. “Parliament should pass a bill for 1.5 times the input cost as MSP for all farmers including apple, dairy and other sectors,” he said. The AIKS leader informed that four lakh farmers have committed suicide across the country in the last 25 years including one lakh in last eight years when BJP led government was ruling in the centre.

“Loans of farmers should be waived off, there should be a genuine crop insurance policy that will help the farmer in case of any natural calamity and the new electricity bill that will increase the cost at least five times should not be passed,” he said.
