Farmers protest against Mandsaur deaths




 Several farmer organizations in Odisha today staged demonstrations here protesting against the "brutal" killing of farmers in Madhya Pradesh.

      Navnirman Krushak Sangathan (NKS), which has been agitating in the state over the same issues as the farmers of Madhya Pradesh, hit out at the BJP government in the Centre and demanded adequate compensation for those killed in Mandsaur, minimum support price of farm produces and pension for elderly farmers.

      NKS also submitted a memorandum to President Pranab Mukherjee through Odisha Governor S C Jamir.

      The farmer wings of CPI and CPI(M) separately staged demonstrations and held the BJP government of Madhya Pradesh responsible for the plight of farmers across the country.

      While CPI's All India Krushak Sabha demanded dismissal of the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh, CPI-M called for an united struggle to safeguard the interest of farmers across the country.

      They also demanded implementation of Swaminathan Commission's recommendation for the welfare of farmers.

      Congress' farmers’ wing too condemned the killing in Madhya Pradesh and accused BJP of using force against "unarmed farmers who were agitating in a democratic manner".






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
