Mysuru extends support for farmers’ protest against farm laws

Prime News, National, Karnataka, Farmers, Mysuru, May 26:-  Farmers’ protest against farms has completed six months and farmers all over the country are observing Wednesday (May 26) as a “black day” all over the country amid the Covid-19 pandemic. As the Centre has not come out with any solution so far, Samyukta Kisan Morcha has given a call for a nationwide protest.

Their line of argument is that the three farm laws will only help the corporate and industrial houses. They are asking the central government to fix the minimum support price. In many areas in Mysuru, farmer leaders are staging a protest and in some areas, residents are extending their support.

In Kochanahalli taluk in Mysuru taluk, farmers protested with black flags. Hosakote Basavaraju, P Maramkaiah, Bakkalli Nanjundaswamy, Mandakalli Mahesh, Govindaraju, Devanna and others were present.

In support of the SKM, Karnataka Prantha Raitha Sangha held a protest. Holding black flags, L Jagannath, Jagadish Surya protested in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office here.

They said, “The Centre should withdraw the farm laws, Labour Act and help every family with Rs 10,000 which doesn’t come under the tax limit. Farmers’ loans should be waived completely.  (MR/KS)
