Arunachal Pradesh: BJP state executive meeting 'Kisan Morcha' held at Aalo
The state executive meeting of Bharatiya Janta Party 'Kisan Morcha' was held at Aalo, West Siang District from March 11 to 13 with the adoption of farm and national security resolution while laying emphasis on reaching out to the farmers of Arunachal Pradesh.
The history and development of the BJP was presented by Nani Laji, state VP, BJP and Prabhari Kishan Morcha, while the resolution on the farm bill was presented by Gabriel D. Wangsu.
The resolution on national security was brought by advocate Kento Jini while both the legislators elaborated details about the farm bill and national security as manifested by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for empowerment of poor, increasing farm income and national security of the country.
Speaking at the occasion, Gabriel D. Wangsu said, “The union farm bill will benefit the farmers of Arunachal Pradesh. 86 per cent of farmers in the country are marginal and poor farmers and the new farm laws are to give better options to earn more by selling their produce beyond the mandis/market.”
“Only 14 per cent of the farmers who are very rich and backed by lobbies and middlemen are playing tactics to pressurise the government to roll back the farm laws which will not happen keeping the larger interest of small and marginal farmers,” added Wangsu.
State BJP President, Biyuram Waghe said that the Pema Khandu led state government is giving more importance on becoming and making Arunachal Pradesh ‘Atma Nirbhar’ in agriculture and horticulture sectors.
