MAHARASHTRA FARMERS STRUGGLE
WIND OF CHANGE
Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, CHQ, Congratulates the farmers of Maharashtra for the historic “Kisan long March” from Nasik to Mumbai. Around 50000 farmers have marched on foot, under the leadership of Maharashtra State Committee of All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS), for around 200 kilometers braving the scorching sun to press their demands before the BJP Government of Maharashtra. The State Government was compelled to concede in writing their demands including loan waivers, right to forest lands for the tribals tilling the lands for decades, Minimum Support price for agriculture products as per Swaminathan Committee recommendation etc.
The successful struggle of the farmers of Maharashtra has inspired the entire country, particularly the workers across the country. The working class stood in solidarity with the struggling farmers earlier in Rajasthan and now in Maharashtra. Central Government Employees under the banner of Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers will continue to support the genuine demands of the farmers all over the country and stand firmly in solidarity with them.
