Farmers protesting against the Centre’s farm laws at Delhi’s Ghazipur border paid tributes to BR Ambedkar on his 130th birth anniversary on Wednesday with BKU leader Dampy Phalwan urging people to save the country from the “company raj”.
The government is not headed by the BJP, it is being run by companies, he said in a statement issued by the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU).
He urged people to save the country from the “company raj”, giving the slogan of “save constitution, save farmers”.
He alleged that several companies are eyeing the agriculture land under the garb of contract farming.
The country has been sold by the government to these companies, he alleged.
On the occasion, Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar Ravan said the public is aware of the Union government’s policy of divide and rule.
All castes and realigns are united and would reply to the government for its dictatorship and exploitation, he said.
Thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at three border points of Delhi — Singhu, Tikri (along Haryana), and Ghazipur — demanding a repeal of the three farm laws enacted by the Centre in September last year.
The Centre says the new farm laws will free farmers from middlemen, giving them more options to sell their crops.
The protesting farmers, however, say the laws will weaken the minimum support price (MSP) system and leave them at the mercy of big corporates.
