They’re Our Flesh And Blood”: MP Varun Gandhi On Farmers’ Protest

Rajasree Roy

MP Varun Gandhi described farmers as “our own flesh and blood” and suggested that the government should re-contact them to reach common ground, on Sunday. They have been protesting against three farm laws. The protest was started in 2020 when the farm laws were published. 

A large number of farmers are now attending a maha panchayat at the Government Inter College ground in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh. It was organized by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM).

There is currently widespread farmer protest happening against the three reforms — Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act.

MP Varun Gandhi tweeted with a short video of the large crowd, “Lakhs of farmers have gathered in protest today in Muzaffarnagar. They are our own flesh and blood. We need to start re-engaging with them in a respectful manner: understand their pain, their point of view, and work with them in reaching common ground.”

The Center had held discussions with the fighting rancher associations however to no end as it didn’t consent to their interest of pulling out the three homestead laws. 

The public authority has demanded that these Acts have offered ranchers a new chance to sell their produce and dismissed the analysis that they are pointed toward getting rid of the base help value system and homestead mandis.
