Surely it is not educated farmers who are on the street.Misguided farmers fight for something they know not what they want
These are not farmers. Most of them are arathiyas/middermen, who are going to loose becoz of the new legislations.. Farmers are the real benefeciaries of these legislations..
If congies and dhirudargal munnetra kgam is opposing than its good for people. Corrupt congies and akalis are loosing money due to this.
Seems like only Punjab farmers will be affected by the Bill's. Opposition has been stumped time and again by Modi. They now time and again try and make an issue out of a non issue. As far as Akalis are concerned good riddance to co ption.
Actually speaking the BJP leaders are very much egoistic and will not yield themselves to the demand by the opposition leaders to withdraw the bills. Ultimately common people
suffering even though they have no connection with farmers directly.
go nment should put them in jail after a good dose of lathicharge..
Farmers are putting their lives under risk with Corona spreading fast and also risking others. Congress and its regional allies should be held accountable, responsible
Run the train over whoever dares to stop it.
These prests are pre planned like CAA and congi sponsored. None of the presters are genuine farmers. All the presters are daily wage workers like CAA.
farmers themselves are responsible for thier state of affairs and will continue to remain poor as they dont want to change.
Shoot at site all riers.
According to honourable thug Sudhir Tihadiji 100 crore blackmail,opposition doesnot do farming and farmers are not educated so they are opposing the bills. Only Modiji has ploughed the lands of Punjab to make India on top in crop production
Dear farmers, don't get misguided by po itics.Don't get misguided by arathias/ middleman. See even after so many yrs your plight remains same or worse. Do embrace a change and you will see the difference.
CONgress farmers and middlemen are the only vultures which are agitating.Rest of the crores of farmers are happy and satisfied.
The farmers are being taken undue advantage of by vested po itical interests with sheer selfish motives! Hopefully, the farmers will learn their folly over time, as well as better understand the benefits they can derive under the farm bills which are mainly aimed at boosting their income!
Bill them for all the losses.
Arrest all the loers including Badals, Commission agents, Sahukars, Money lenders who are inciting, financing and misleading farmers. The agitation will subside quickly.
"Rent a crowd" prest going on.
The farmers Are being misused by the Congress! The farmers are the biggest winers under this farm bill! Jai Hind!
Arrest these ugly mofos.
