AAP kicks off nationwide farmers outreach programme from Bhopal
Bhopal: The AAP on Saturday kicked off its nationwide farmers’ outreach programme from here with Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai asking the cultivators to take on the centre which is trying to quell their voice.
AAP will be holding meetings with farmers in different states in the coming months.
“The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) launched the first phase of its nation-wide farmers movement from here on Saturday under which we are going to hold meetings with farmers,” Rai told a gathering here.
“Such meets are going to be organised in other states including Goa, Uttarakhand and Haryana,” he added.
The second phase will start with holding farmers rallies in 20 states from September 11. These yatras will reach villages with a call for “Delhi Chalo”, he added.
Under the third phase, sit-ins will be held at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on October 2 (the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi), Rai said.
“Farmers across the country will reach Ramleela ground in Delhi and take out a rally on November 26 that happens to be the fifth foundation day of AAP,” he said.
He said AAP has taken up the farmers cause whose voice is being muzzled by the state and central governments and the police firing in which six farmers were killed in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur district on June 6 is a testimony to it.
Rai alleged that the BJP government in centre was trying to destabilise AAP government in Delhi.
“If Madhya Pradesh assembly elections were held with ballot papers next year, AAP will sweep the polls and BJP candidates are bound to lose their deposit,” he claimed.
