New Delhi, January 12
Opposition parties have thrown their weight behind the protesting farmers and demanded that the three farm laws be repealed and a special Parliament session called to discuss all issues concerning them.
Airing their views during a “special kisan session” of Janta Parliament, leaders of the Congress, TMC, RJD, CPM, CPI and the Forward Bloc pressed for a legislation on MSP with guaranteed procurement. “It is clear that the laws are only meant to benefit the corporate sector,” CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury claimed.
CPI general secretary D Raja said: “Parliament is being used to implement the BJP and RSS agenda. It is all about centralisation of power. We first heard about ‘one nation, one tax’, and now we are hearing ‘one nation, one election’,” Raja said. — TNS
