Farmer leaders’ campaign against ‘Bharatiya Janata Party’
New Delhi: Indian farmers protesting against controversial agricultural laws have announced a campaign not to vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party in the elections.
According to a report by a foreign news agency, Indian peasant leaders who have been protesting on the border of the capital Delhi for the last 106 days against the Modi government’s agricultural laws will campaign not to vote for the BJP in the state elections.
Indian farmer leaders say they will visit West Bengal, Puducherry, Assam, Tamil Nadu and Kerala to appeal to the people to abstain from voting for the BJP and vote for another party.
Indian farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajivwal said that we have formed teams to go to the electoral states and run anti-BJP campaigns.
The farmer leader said that ‘Agriculture Day and Market Day’ would be observed across the country on March 19 and ‘India Bandh’ would be observed on March 26 as the farmers’ movement on the Delhi border would complete four months on that day.
