Rajya Sabha MP Deepender Singh Hooda has asked the government on how many sacrifices would it take from the farmers for them to see reason and accept their demands. The CWC member said the government must show openness and accept the demands laid out by farmers in their meeting on Wednesday. Deepender on Tuesday reached the Kittlana toll plaza to join the farmers in their indefinite dharna. Speaking to protesting farmers, he said the ‘Annadata’ of the country is on the streets for 34 days in the bitter cold. “It is a matter of shame that the rulers are resting in their heated rooms, indifferent to the suffering of the farmers. They have forgotten that it is the farmers and farm labourers who have put them in power,” he said.
Deepender advised the government that he still had time to recover. “The government should leave its stubborn and adopt positive thinking in the talks with the farmers’ organizations on Wednesday and move towards a solution. If the government still does not understand the pain of the Annadata, then it would have to pay dearly in the coming time. In tomorrow’s talks, the government should adopt a flexible approach and meet the demands of the farmers, so that these movements can end and the farmers can return to their homes,” Deepender suggested.MP Deepender said he had joined the protest not as an MP but as a person belonging to the farmer’s family. “It is our duty to stand with the farmers and jawans of the country. Farmers and soldiers have the highest status in this country but the current government has made the slogan ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’ meaningless. As if this government is pushing them to death. The soldiers are sacrificing their lives for the nation on the borders to defend the motherland while the farmers are sacrificing their lives for defending their farmland,” he said.“Everyday, some agitating farmer is killed but the government is ignoring his sacrifice by crossing all limits of insensitivity. The government should remember that unless the soldier and farmer get respect in the country, the country will not move forward,” he said.
