Chamba, February 21
The District Congress Committee (DCC) sought withdrawal of farm laws in the interest of farmers. The DCC sent a memorandum in this respect to the Centre through the DC.
DCC president Neeraj Nayar and Block Congress Committee president Kartar Thakur said the Union Government was exploiting farmers by becoming a puppet in the hands of corporate houses.
They said farmers had been agitating for nearly three months at various borders along Delhi-NCR, but the Centre was bent on insulting them with their obstinate attitude. The Congress would continue their protest in support of the farmers until the laws were withdrawn, the leaders said. There were many flaws in the Agricultural Reform Amendment Act, and with the laws, the farmers would lose their land, they said. — OC
