‘We are farmers, not terrorists’: Kolkata Durga Puja pandal depicts farm law agitation

Prime News, National (Kolkata), Oct 7:- A noted Durga Puja pandal in Kolkata this year will depict the agitation over the farm laws in the country, besides the killing of farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh.

Giant replica of a tractor being used by farmers to till the land is placed at the entrance of the Dumdum Park Bharat Chakra pandal in the northern fringes of the city, depicting their struggle.

The sidewalks are adorned by the sketch of a car and a farmer lying on its path, accompanied by a line in Bengali- “motorgari uray dhulo niche pore chashigulo”, meaning the car leaves behind a swirl of dust while farmers fall under its wheels.

Hundreds of sandals lie on the ground of the pandal, symbolising the scenes after a protest- during which many lose their shoes amid police action. The main pandal is decorated with replicas of paddy, hanging from the roof. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
