Farmers movement also got support from Karnataka, Khattar said – Demonstrations for politics, Congress’s hand

Haryana CM said that the work that Congress does to mislead the farmers, I appeal to them to leave it. Do not disturb the system by provoking anyone.

The members of the Karnataka Farmers Association Association and the State Sugarcane Growers Association have decided to support the farmers’ Bharat Bandh. A nationwide bandh has been announced by the United Kisan Morcha on September 27 in protest against the controversial agricultural laws of the central government. On the other hand, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has said that the farmers’ protest is politically motivated. At the same time, he has blamed the Congress for this.

Haryana CM said that the work that Congress does to mislead the farmers, I appeal to them to leave it. Do not disturb the system by provoking anyone. There is a movement going on in which a particular section of people are sitting, not all farmers are involved in it. Farmers are happy with the increase in the rate of sugarcane. He said that we are continuously working in the interest of the farmers. It has happened in our time to fix the price of the crop before sowing it. This time we have increased the rate of sugarcane by Rs 12 per quintal. The highest rate in the country at this time is ours.

Referring to a news on Saturday, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said that not the income of farmers, but debt has increased in the country. He tweeted, “Farmer’s income not debt increased! What to do when the person who feeds the country cannot feed his family?” The news cited by Rahul Gandhi states that between 2013 and 2018, the average debt on farmer families increased by 57 percent.

The Haryana government on Saturday ordered an inquiry into last month’s clash between farmers and police and sent an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, who was at the center of the dispute between the two sides, on leave. Following this, the farmers said that they would withdraw their protest outside the district headquarters of Karnal. Haryana Additional Chief Secretary Devendra Singh told the media in Karnal that the inquiry would be conducted by a retired judge. He said that the investigation would be completed within a month and former Sub-Divisional District Magistrate (SDM) Ayush Sinha would be on leave during this period. Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chadhuni, who was part of the press conference, said that they will now end their dharna outside Karnal district headquarters.
