Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren on Friday sought the resignation of the Union agriculture minister following the Centre’s decision to repeal the three controversial farm laws.
Besides this, he also demanded martyr status for farmers who died during their protest, adequate monetary compensation and jobs to their family members.
Speaking to reporters, Soren termed the decision of the government as ‘unfortunate and laughable’.
आज सुबह-सुबह देश के माननीय प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी जी ने काले कृषि क़ानून को वापस लेने की घोषणा की। यह बहुत ही हास्यास्पद घोषणा है। अब पूरी भाजपा इस प्रचार में लगी है कि प्रधानमंत्री जी किसानों के हितैषी दिखें!— Hemant Soren (@HemantSorenJMM) November 19, 2021
यह बात साबित हुई है कि देश में आज भी लोकतंत्र जींदा है।(1)
“The BJP and their supporters are calling the PM a well-wisher of farmers. In other words, it’s like saying that one tries to choke someone’s neck but when the person still survives, you can claim you were just trying to hug the person. Some of their own leaders have spoken about the impending political damage. That is why I say this is an unfortunate and laughable decision,” said Soren, who is also the working president of the ruling Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM).
Seeking the resignation of union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Soren said the decision (to repeal the farm laws) is backed by realisation in the BJP leadership about the impending political damage.
और इतने वक्त तक किसान जो सड़कों पर थे, जो घर-बार छोड़कर बाल-बच्चों के साथ सड़क पर थे, उन देश के सभी किसानों को फसल की क्षतिपूर्ति के लिए 10-10 लाख रुपए दें।— Hemant Soren (@HemantSorenJMM) November 19, 2021
साथ ही अविलंब केंद्रीय कृषि मंत्री को इस्तीफ़ा दे देना चाहिए।
Seeking adequate monetary compensation to those who lost their lives protesting the farm laws, Soren said their family members should also get government jobs.
“The decision has established that democracy in the country is still alive. The Prime Minister should immediately provide monetary compensation of ₹5 crore each to the family of all those farmers who died in the protests. They should be given martyr status. All cases filed against protesters should be withdrawn. And other farmers who have been protesting on the street with their family members also need to be compensated with ₹10 lakh each for their crop loss,” added Soren.
