Maharashtra Farmers on Road Once Again
Thousands of farmers led by AIKS in Maharashtra flays the new BJP government at centre and the BJP-Shiv Sena government in the state on burning peasant issues. At the statewide call of the All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) Maharashtra State Council, thousands of peasants poured out on the streets in several districts of the state on June 1, just two days after the newly elected BJP regime at the Centre took office. The statewide protests also flayed the State Government of the BJP-Shiv Sena for its betrayal of promises made to farmers on issues of drought relief, loan waiver, fair prices, land rights, ration, pension and other local issues. June 1 marked the second anniversary of the historic 11-day statewide farmers' strike in Maharashtra that had started on June 1, 2017.
