paddy-farmers

Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee of CPI (Maoist) severely condemns the Central and the state government’s anti farmer policy regarding stopping of bonus and limiting to ten quintals per acre of buying of paddy by the Government and calls upon all the farmers of Chathisgarh to take up militant agitation against the same.

This anti farmer decision is a clear conspiracy to benefit the imperialists. This, along with advocating the farmers to change the crop cycle, discouraging to cultivate paddy, making the country dependent on the imperialists for daily food is nothing but anti people. In the name of change of crop cycle the government is trying to encourage commercial crops like ratanjyoth in order to benefit the multi national companies.

On one hand America, Japan and other such imperialist countries are giving hundred percent subsidies for the farmers and on the other hand the farmers of our country are facing cuts on subsidies and are also totally deprived of the same. This is nothing but the conspiracy of the government to make the farmers handicapped.

We call upon all the progressive, democratic and patriotic sections, human rights activists and the peasants and workers to raise voice against the anti peasant decision of the government that represents the ruling, exploitative classes in collaboration with the imperialists. We call upon the peasant masses of Chathisgarh to come together and demand the abolition of the limitation on buying paddy and for the support price of Rs. 2500 per quintal. We are in support to the struggle.
