Kisan Panchayat Barabanki, Gorakhpur: To connect small farmers who cannot reach the Delhi border, VKU is agitating against the agricultural law through Mahapanchayats from West UP to Purba Panch.
Indian Farmers Union now Peasant movement (Kisan Andolan) is preparing to go from Western Uttar Pradesh to Eastern Uttar Pradesh i.e. Purbachancha through Mahachanli. First in this practice Kisan Panchayat It happened in Barabanki on Wednesday and there will be a panchayat in the village near Gorakhpur on Thursday. The farmers’ unions have said that due to the closure of train services, the farmers of Purbachancha can reach the place of movement, so they will join the peasant movement through the panchayat.
Farmers from many surrounding districts came to the panchayat held in Barabanki to listen to their leaders. Here Naresh Tikait told the farmers that the new agricultural law would further harm the small farmers. Naresh Tikait said, we have to save the small farmers, then the big farmers will save. Naresh Tikait said that we are seeing how much anger and resentment we have among the farmers. Panchayats and Mahapanchayats are. Which has never been seen on such a large scale.
Western UP farmers are flocking to the Delhi border in large numbers, but Eastern UP farmers have had to travel thousands of kilometers to get there. Farmer War Shwar Singh, who came from Haridwar to join the Barbanki Mahapanchayat, said the panchayat gives farmers a platform to solve their problems. He said that the rates of wheat and paddy were the same 20 years ago. Pesticides, petrol-diesel (petrol-diesel) have all become so expensive. There is no answer that prices are so sky high. Anoop, a young farmer, came from 25 km away to join this panchayat.
Anup, who is pursuing a BSc in agriculture, said such panchayats would connect farmers who could not reach the Delhi border. Farmer Anupam Yadav said that small and marginal farmers could not leave their businesses and sit at the Gazipur border to talk to them, so they joined the mahapanchayats and expressed their problems.
That is why the peasant leaders are also preparing for a long struggle after seeing the long spread of peasant protests. After Western UP, they are busy connecting farmers with Krishak Panchayats in Eastern Uttar Pradesh (UP farmers) and other areas. Unions that cannot reach the Delhi border will benefit from having Kisan Panchayats in their area.
