Politburo member of CPM who is also the Opposition leader, Manik Sarkar and party’s State secretary Jitendra Choudhury urged people to raise voice against the contentious three Farm Laws and support the Bharat Bandh on September 27 next.
Both the leaders trained guns at the Central Government and opposed the three Agri bills. According to leaders, the Agri Laws will benefit the corporate sector at the cost of farmers.
Left Parties on Tuesday organized a mass convention at Agartala Rabindra Bhawan to express solidarity with the ‘Bharat Bandh’. Opposition leader and CPM Politburo member, Manik Sarkar, party’s state secretary Jitendra Choudhury among other party leaders and workers were present at the convention.
Opposing the Farm Laws, Sarkar said, “These farm Laws shall immensely benefit foreign and domestic corporate houses to reap super-profits by imposing miseries both on the farmers and the people”.
Continuing his tirade against the Central Government, he said, “The Narendra Modi government continues to remain stubborn and is refusing to engage with the struggling kisans through talks to end the agitation,” adding to this Sarkar said, “The government is trying to fool the farmers in the name of farm bills for the benefits of corporate houses.”
Addressing the convention, CPM state secretary Jitendra Choudhury came down heavily on the BJP government at the centre and said, “At a time when the COVID pandemic was raging through the entire nation and the farmers were reeling under an acute crisis, the government at the centre instead of meeting the demands of the farmers had decided to hand over the farmers’ agricultural lands with the corporate houses.”
Both Sarkar and Choudhury urged people to join the Bharat Bandh on September 27 and make it a success.
Meanwhile, different wings of the Left party in Tripura including the AIDYO on Tuesday organized series of programmes in support of the Bharat Bandh on September 27 and raised a demand to repel the three Farm Laws.
