An Appeal to Listen to Voice
Farmers organization held a nationwide Bharat Bandh on Sep 27 as part of their ongoing agitation against the Union government contentious the three farm laws passed 10 months ago. Farmers have been demanding for these laws to be struck off completely and this leads to an nationwide uproar since then. For any democracy to thrive, it is indispensable to listen to the voice of the people and protest is a kind of medium to attract the attention of the people and the government. However, the Bandh brings inconvenience to the people but they are left with nothing except this. Keeping this thing in mind, something like Band seem the need of the hour for farmers because for any democracy to thrive it is indispensable to listen to the voice of the people and protest is a dynamic tool to attract the attention of the people and the the government.
The condition of farmers has never been good enough and after independent it was considered that it would bring upliftment in the conditions but nothing happened as such. From Shastri's slogan 'Jai Jawan Jai Kisan' to Modi's promise of doubling farmers income by 2022 brings nothing but mere hope. In terms of their emancipation, nothing seems to really bring a sense of satisfaction in them otherwise they would not have been in street for long time. Farmers' grievances need to be expedited and multiple rounds of talks to be channelized for negotiation and if possible an interlocutor can be placed to handle the situation or mitigate the problem or else the situation can turn from bad to worse.
No problem is as big as it seems provided intention is clear to resolve the issue, The Bandh not only brings stagnation but also draws back to the pace of the economy. In a growing economy where everyone is contributing, such stalemate is not appreciated at all. It's time to take necessary actions for the grievances and the slogan like Sabka Sath, Sabka Vishwas must match with its word.
