Nalgonda: On Saturday, the farmers’ protest which was started in New Delhi against the Central Government for three farm laws has completed 100 days. The members of Telangana Rythu Sangham on Saturday, to mark 100th day of protest took out a rally.
The rally was started by more than 100 members of the Sangham, who wore framers’ traditional clothes and took ploughs on their shoulders. It started from the Subhash statue to the Clock Tower center in Nalgonda.
The rally was initiated as part of extending solidarity with the famers’ protesting at the National Capital borders from past three months. Julakanti Ranga Reddy, Telangana Rythu Sangham State vice president, expressed his disappointment over the Central’s silence for the ongoing protest of farmers against the three farm laws. He said that their insensitive approach is against the interests of common people and farmers.
While speaking after the rally at Clock Tower Centre, Julakanti accused that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has mortgaged the sovereignty of the country with corporate forces by privatizing the public sector units. He alleged the government for bringing the policies in their favor. He further added that the attitude of Prime Minister doesn’t bulge even though the farmers’ agitation was getting support from across the world.
He also stated that the famers’ union will extend their support for the protests and continue their agitation across the country until the laws are reversed. He said that the meetings will be conducted at village level to consolidate support for ongoing farmers’ protests at New Delhi. He also asked State government to pass a resolution at Legislative Assembly which will oppose the farm laws of the Centre.
He also urged the State government for withdrawal of removing paddy procurement centers. Mudhureddy Sudhakar Reddy, CPI(M) district secretary, MD Saleem, Paladugu Nagarjuna, Ch Laxminarayana were among those who participated in the rally at Clock Tower in Nalgonda.
