Countrywide Fishworkers Forum has threatened to go for a Samundhar Bandh, if the government did not spend heed to farmers’ demand.
Joining the call presented by farmers to repeal the freshly enacted farm guidelines, Narendra R.Patil, Chairperson, NFF demanded the government to withdraw the new farm guidelines. The Forum also referred to as upon all fishworkers unions in the coastline to be a part of the battle with farmers.
NFF alleged that these guidelines are anti-farmer in character and spirit, and will successfully assistance the corporates in the form of agri-business enterprise to loot the country’s pure means, even raise the corporate’s margin of earnings.
The forum does not see the current battle in isolation and calls for broader alliances and further more steps, if the government does not relent to the demands of the farmers. It hoped that the government will immediately cease its repressive tactics to suppress farmer’s protests throughout the nation, the arbitrary imposition of bogus scenarios and arrests on farmer leaders and activists.
