Tara Gandhi Bhattacharya said, “We have not come here under any political program,” according to the BKU statement leading the protest in Ghazipur on the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border. We have come here today for the farmers, who have provided food to all of us in our whole life. “
She told the protesters, “We are because of you all. In the benefit of farmers lies the benefit of the country and all of us “.
Significantly, since November last year, a large number of farmers have been camping at different borders in Delhi. The agitating farmers are demanding the repeal of the new three agricultural laws of the Center and a new law guaranteeing minimum support price (MSP) for crops.
Bhattacharya recalled the first freedom struggle in 1857 for liberation from British rule and said that it too started from Meerut in western Uttar Pradesh. According to a statement issued by BKU media in-charge Dharmendra Malik, Mahatma Gandhi’s granddaughter said that she had come to the protest site to pray for the farmers.
She said, “I want that farmers should benefit from whatever happens.” No person is unaware of the hard work of the farmers. “
