Maratha stalwart and NCP chief Sharad Pawar said it is the responsibility of those in power to aptly honour farmers, but unfortunately cultivators are now forced to stage protest for their rights.
On the occasion of the National Farmers’ Day, the former Union agriclture minister in a post on Twitter wished for justice to the farmers.
Thousands of cultivators have been protesting at the border points of Delhi since November 26 against the Centre’s three new farm laws.
“It is the responsibility of those in power to aptly honour farmer who forms an important part of economy. But unfortunately the farmer of the country is now forced to stage protest for his rights and demands,” Pawar tweeted.
अर्थव्यवस्थेचा महत्त्वाचा घटक असलेल्या बळीराजाला उचित सन्मान देण्याची प्राथमिक जबाबदारी शासनकर्त्यांची आहे. पण आज दुर्दैवाने देशाच्या शेतकऱ्याला त्याचे हक्क व मागण्यांसाठी आंदोलन करावे लागतेय. देशाच्या बळीराजाला न्याय मिळावा हीच राष्ट्रीय शेतकरी दिनानिमित्त सदिच्छा व्यक्त करतो. pic.twitter.com/3CWWLuHrdV
