Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal has said that he will keep a day’s fast on Monday in support of farmers. He said that farmers have requested to keep a day’s fast on December 14, that all should keep a day’s fast in their support.
He asked the party workers and all the people of the country to keep a day’s fast on Monday in support of the farmers’ demands. He said that he has requested the Central Government to leave arrogance and accept the demands of the farmers.
He said, “Governments are made by the people, the people are not made by governments. If the public does not like these three laws, they should be abolished immediately and the MSP should make a guarantee law to buy the crops of the farmers and accept the demands of the farmers immediately. “
Arvind Kejriwal said that an attempt is being made to discredit the farmer movement, it should not happen.
He said, “For the last few days, some ministers of the Central Government and some people of the BJP are repeatedly saying that this movement belongs to the traitors.”
He questioned, “I want to ask him that thousands of ex-servicemen are sitting with farmers. Thousands of soldiers are sitting in homes praying for farmers. Are they traitors? Many players playing abroad are praying for the farmers today, are they traitors? Many doctors, many businessmen are supporting him, are they all traitors? “
He said, “I spoke to some people in the past. They told me that these bills are dangerous, because it is written that a person can hoard grain as much as he wants.”
“According to the laws that are in place till now, it is a crime to take out hoarding in this country and it would have been punished, because hoarding would increase inflation. But now according to this law there will be no punishment for hoarding and hoarding will not be banned till inflation is doubled. “
He said that no one should be under the misconception that only a few farmers are against these laws.
