Gurnam Singh Chadhuni said: The government should waive loans to prevent debt-burdened farmers from committing suicide.

Pundri/Kaithal: Bharatiya Kisan Union national president Gurnam Singh Chaduni said that the BJP government, which talked of doubling farmers’ income by 2022, has doubled farmers’ costs and expenses. Peasants were forced to commit suicide. The government should waive the loans of debt-burdened farmers to prevent them from committing suicide so that the farmers get relief. Gurnam Singh Chaduni addressed the farmers of the region at Kisan Bhawan in Pundri.

Severe damage to farmers’ crops due to hailstorm

BKU national president Gurnam Singh Chaduni said farmers’ crops in many districts of the state suffered huge losses due to rain and hailstorm. Without wasting any time, the government should provide full compensation to the affected farmers by conducting a special Girdawari with immediate effect so that the Dhartiputra farmers suffering under the debt burden can get some relief. The government increased the amount of fertilizer and reduced the weight of fertilizer packages. This clearly shows that the government has nothing to do with the interests of farmers. False applause is gained simply by making false claims on behalf of farmers.

The Swaminathan Commission report will not be implemented

Gurnam Singh Chaduni said that the Swaminathan Commission report was not being implemented to provide farmers with remunerative prices for their crops. All governments that have previously been in power in the country are to blame for this. The Swaminathan Commission report will be an important issue in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and Haryana Assembly elections in the country. Farmers sometimes have to close highways over MSP and sometimes they have to face police charges and go to jail. No single political party or government is responsible for this situation. There is no information about the MSP, which was founded by the central government during the farmers’ movement and is there today.

The government is worried about its industrialist friends

Gurnam Singh Chaduni said the government was only worried about its industrial friends. So far, no government has implemented the Swaminathan Commission report to determine the MSP of agricultural crops. It recommended that 50 percent of the farmer’s profit be added to the production costs of the crop. To prevent farmers from committing suicide due to debt, all their loans should be forgiven. If the central government fails to meet these demands, it will face strong resistance from farmers in the coming elections.
