Anantnag, Nov 20 (KNS): The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) on Saturday described the decision to revoke three farming laws as outcome of the sacrifices & struggle of the Farmers.

The Party also hailed Rahul Gandhi’s incomparable strong opposition against the unwanted three farming laws, describing the decision of the Centre as historic victory for Famers and Congress, who both remained committed to fight against these laws.

JKPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir made these comments while addressing a largely attended party workers convention in Verinag area of Anantnag District.

Congress workers convention Part of party’s Jan Jagran Abhiyan was also observed as Kissan Vijay Divas after the Centre decided to repeal farming laws.

JKPCC Vice President and Former Minister Raman Bhalla, Vice President Haji Abdul Rashid Dar, Gulzar Ahmad Wani (Former Legislators), Gen Secretary Surinder Singh Channi and various other party leaders addressed the convention.

JKPCC President reminded the Party workers about the Rahul Gandhi’s assertions after the Centre brought in three farming laws, in which he categorically dismissed the Centre’s theory with regard to these laws, he (RG) had told  the Nation that Modi Government has to revoke these  Laws as  the Farmers  had not sought such unwanted laws, which were indeed detrimental to their interests.

Congress party under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi fought against the Centre’s farming policies with robustness lending its full support to farmers, as a result, Centre decided to repeal these.

Even after loss of hundreds of precious lives of farmers the Centre remained adamant not to backup, but after sensing defeat in upcoming elections, besides the public opinion which is against BJP, it (Centre) decided to revoke the laws, Mir added and said Nation is yearning for the change, the  public opinion was, is and will continue to remain against BJP for the policies and the burden it has put on their shoulders especially on account of unprecedented price hike, demonetization, joblessness and economic crisis and various other issues being faced by the middle class and poor people equally across the country.

Mir said the Jan Jagran Abhiyan launched by the party is aiming to highlight and lodge strong protest against policies of the Centre towards the people, the Party will continue to fight against BJP Government on the issues of public importance in order to make it accountable and answerable to people.

Referring to the current situation in J&K, Mir said the situation has turned from bad to worse on security, economic, employment and on various other fronts, as a result, people have lost faith in the policies of Centre Government, especially after August 5 2019, when the Centre unilaterally downgraded  the full-fledged J&K State in two UTs, while ruling  it(J&K) directly, besides  abandoning the democratic rights to people, which has sent  wrong and confusing signals across J&K, the Centre has to revoke its August 5, 2019 decisions like that of  three farming laws, Ghulam Ahmad Mir declared.

Mir also expressed anguish over the bloodshed, terming it as utter failure of the Centre, which has even failed to ensure safety of innocent civilians.

Speaking on the occasion JKPCC Vice President and Former Minister Raman Bhalla said that Jan Jagran programme is one of the party’s great endeavor to reach out to people to highlight their problems, which they have been facing since the Modi Government assumed power at Centre. “What kind of Governance BJP is talking about, in which common people have no right to say anything or protest against the unwanted decisions and policies of the Government thrusted upon them unliterally,” he questioned?

Bhalla expressed serious concern over the highest rate of unemployment, inflation and economic crisis in J&K and said every sector in J&K is worst hit due to the policies adopted by the Govt.

On this occasion Raman Bhalla congratulated the farmers for their struggle and sacrifices and said the Centre’s move to repeal the laws reflects the historic victory of Farmers and Congress party, which will continue to remain committed to fight for the rights of people.

Bhalla termed the Congress as the only unifying force in the country, committed to empower and serve people, he said.

Addressing the gathering Haji Abdul Rashid Dar, Gulzar Ahmad Wani and Surinder Singh Channi urged the party workers to remain connected with the people on ground and do their utmost to resolve their problems, as there was  disconnect between the administration and people in absence of the popular Govt, which was being denied by the Centre Govt to J&K on one pretext or the other, terming the Centre’s move as undemocratic, unethical and anti-people while demanding holding of elections after restoring full statehood to J&K.
