Sitaram Yechury – General Secretary, CPIM:
The three farm laws must be immediately repealed. The PM must make the announcement.
The situation has been brought to this pass by the Modi government. Farmers have been protesting peacefully in the cold for more than 60 days, not allowed to come into Delhi and more than 100 Kisans are dead.
Violence in no form is an answer & is unacceptable. A govt which smears dissent, BJP’s troll army vilify those who ask for their rights, ministers make wild allegations, law officers make claims without basis in court – this is no way to deal with legitimate demands of our Kisans
The Republic is of the public. The tantra (establishment) in Ganatantra has no meaning without the gana (the people).
The protests are for a legitimate demand of millions of our farmers from various states across the country.
That remains the issue at hand, and must be resolved. The solution is clear – repeal these farm laws.
We, the People, resolved to be a Republic abolishing the Ruler-Subject relationship.
We established the State-Citizen compact on this day where all citizens are equal and have inalienable fundamental rights.
