Modi govt should be sensitive towards farmers: Ambedkar

Akola, Jan 26 (PTI) Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA)
leader Prakash Ambedkar on Tuesday termed the Modi government
as “anti-farmer” and condemned the police action against
protesters during a tractor parade taken out by cultivators in
Delhi.

He said it was unfortunate that such an incident took
place on the Republic Day in Delhi, where violence broke out
during a tractor parade taken out by farmers protesting
against the Centre”s new agri-marketing laws.

Talking to reporters here, Ambedkar dubbed the Modi
government as “anti-farmer” and said it should be more
sensitive towards cultivators.

“August 15 and January 26 are very important days for
the country. It is wrong to charge protesters with sticks on
this day. We condemn this incident. The government should be
sensitive,” he said.

Earlier, Ambedkar flagged off a tractor rally
organised in Akola city by a farm outfit in support of
cultivators protesting against the Centre”s new agri-marketing
laws.

Tens of thousands of farmers broke barriers to storm
the national capital, their tractor parade to highlight their
demands dissolving into unprecedented scenes of anarchy as
they fought with police, overturned vehicles and delivered a
national insult hoisting a religious flag from the ramparts
of the Red Fort, a privilege reserved for India”s tricolour.

Clashes broke out in multiple places, leading to
violence in well-known landmarks of Delhi and its suburbs.

While there were no exact estimates of how many
farmers were hurt, Delhi Police officials said 86 of their men
were injured.

Police baton charged farmers at Chintamani Chowk in
Delhi when they broke barricades and smashed window panes of
cars. The Delhi police used teargas shells to disperse the
restive crowds in some places. PTI COR
