MUMBAI/NEW DELHI: NCP president Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said he would appeal to the agitating farmers to go back to their respective villages peacefully so that there was no scope for the Narendra Modi government to blame them in the wake of mishandling of the situation in the Capital.
Pawar reacted sharply to the handling of the agitation and said, “The Centre is determined to ignore the agitation and hence there was no dialogue between the agitating farmers and nominees of the government. Whatever happened in New Delhi today, no one will endorse, but it was high time to study why such a situation arose. All out efforts were made to crush the agitation by using massive force. It will have massive repercussions. We have seen Punjab disturbed, now it is the responsibility of the Modi government to ensure that Punjab remains peaceful.”
The veteran pointed out that ever since the farmers’ agitation began in New Delhi, it had remained apolitical and it was expected that the government would initiate dialogue and find an amicable solution, but the government was determined to crush the agitation.
“In Mumbai, thousands of farmers had gathered to support agitating farmers in New Delhi, but the law-enforcing agencies in Maharashtra observed restraint. As a result, it was a peaceful agitation,” he added.
Launching a frontal attack on the Modi government, Pawar said the Centre introduced the three legislations in Parliament without adequate consultations.
“Proper procedure should have been followed, all sections should have been taken into confidence,” he said. Other opposition parties too condemned the clashes but said the Centre was squarely responsible for allowing the protests to fester.
Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee condemned the clashes with similar caveats. “Centre’s insensitive attitude and indifference towards our farmer brothers and sisters has to be blamed. First, three laws were passed without taking farmers in confidence. And then, despite protests across India and farmers camping near Delhi for two months, they’ve been extremely casual in dealing with them,” she said.
Left members, who have backed the protests, also joined the march on Tuesday. CPM’s Sitaram Yechury condemned all violence but demanded that the PM announce immediate repeal of the laws. “The republic is of the public. The tantra in ‘ganatantra’ has no meaning without the ‘gana’. The protests are for a legitimate demand of millions of farmers, that remains the issue at hand and must be resolved.”
