The Maharashtra government has once again targeted the Modi government. The Shiv Sena, through an article in its editorial Saamana, has questioned the Modi government regarding the farmer movement. In its editorial Shiv Sena accused the central government of just pretending to hold discussions with farmers.
The article written in Saamna states that eight rounds of negotiations have been held between the farmer and the government, but why no result has been achieved so far. This means that the government has no interest in it. The article further said that this is just the politics of the government that the peasant movement should continue like this.
Shiv Sena wrote in the editorial that Delhi is getting cold and it has been raining for the last three days. Water entered the peasants’ tents and their clothes and bedding are also wet. Even after this, the farmers are willing to retreat. It was written in Saamana that the repeal of the Agricultural Law is the demand of the farmers and because of this movement, 50 farmers have died on the Delhi border.
It was further written that if there was a little humanity in the government, then the agriculture law would be immediately postponed and the game of playing with the lives of farmers would be stopped. The Shiv Sena has also written about the meeting held on Monday in its mouthpiece Saamana.
Saamana wrote that the farmers had a meeting with Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal and Minister of State Sompal Shastri. 40 farmer leaders were present in this meeting but the meeting ended with no result. It further added that after the meeting the farmer leaders stood on the stairs of Vigyan Bhavan and said that what is this spectacle, the government is playing with us in the name of meetings, how does it benefit anyone?
It was written in the editorial that on one side the government pretends to hold discussions with the farmers. On the other hand, farmers fear that the new agricultural law will hand over their businesses to corporate companies. The farmers feel they are being implicated under the new agricultural law. The editorial further read that after towers of Reliance Jio Company of Punjab and Haryana were vandalized by the farmers’ Reliance Company issue a statement that they do not have any interest in the farming business.
It was written in Saamana that the Prime Minister should interfere in the movement. The editorial read that the farmers say that we will not return home until the law is withdrawn. The farmers say that they do not want changes in the laws, but they want it to be repealed and only then the agitation will be stopped.
Meanwhile, on the backdrop of the upcoming Mumbai Municipal Corporation elections, the Shiv Sena has organized a gathering of Gujarati speakers to attract Gujarati speaking citizens. This gathering will be held in Jogeshwari on the 10th. The tagline ‘ Mumbai Ma Jalebi Na Fafda, Uddhav Thackeray Apada ‘ is being used for this fair.
