Chhattisgarh Kisan Sabha (CGKS)
(Affiliate to All India Kisan Sabha – AIKS)
Noorani Chowk, Rajatalab, Raipur, Chhattisgarh
Chhattisgarh Kisan Sabha, affiliated to All India Kisan Sabha, termed the BJP’s manifesto ‘Modi’s Guarantee’ as “jumlabaji” and has appealed to the general mass not to fall prey to it and vote for the formation of a secular government, ensuring the defeat of the BJP in the entire state. Kisan Sabha has said that there is no guarantee of implementation of any guarantee from the BJP, which does not give support price of one and a half times the gross cost on the basis of the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission, which brings anti-farmer agricultural law and anti-labor labor code and which wreaks havoc on tribals through Salwa Judum. Now the general public can not trust any guarantee of BJP.
In a statement issued here today, Chhattisgarh Kisan Sabha convenor Sanjay Parate said that the BJP’s Modi government at the Center has only served the interests of corporates in the last nine years. Due to their policies, the income of the common people has declined, unemployment and poverty have increased, and inflation is skyrocketing. The country’s federal structure and secularism, is under threat and the politics of hatred has flourished.
The Kisan Sabha leader said that the workers, farmers, dalits, tribals and women of Chhattisgarh have also suffered the misrule of the BJP in the state. While in power and in opposition for the last five years, BJP has only done communal polarization and has not fought on any problem of the common people. He said that why is BJP remembering the people now at the time of elections and why is it opening such a ‘box of guarantees’, which it has been rejecting till now? BJP should tell how and in how much time will it fulfill the promises of its manifesto?
He said that the BJP which had gone to the Supreme Court and refused to give one and a half times the C-2 cost to the farmers, is today giving a ridiculous guarantee of buying 21 quintals of paddy from the farmers at the rate of Rs 3100. The BJP which indiscriminately increased the prices of gas, petrol and diesel is today making ‘jumlabaazi’ to sell them cheaper. The BJP, whose tenure has been infamous from paddy to NAN scam and which has become a refuge for corrupt people from other parties, is making ridiculous claims of giving a corruption-free state.
Kisan Sabha leader Parate said that it is not just a coincidence that BJP is silent on the question of protecting water, forests, land, minerals and natural resources and protecting them from corporate plunder and on the issue of constitutional rights and human rights of tribals, because the atrocities committed by it on tribals through state-sponsored Salwa Judum, BJP candidates are not able to go to the interior areas of Bastar in these elections also.
