Opposition In Bihar To Hold Week-Long Stir Against Farm Laws: Tejashwi Yadav


The opposition Grand Alliance in Bihar would launch an agitation against the farm laws shortly which would conclude with a state-wide human chain a week later, the coalitions leader Tejashwi Yadav announced in Patna on Thursday.

Addressing a press conference soon after a meeting of MLAs of his RJD where the programme was finalised, Mr Yadav said, the Kisan Jagriti Saptaah (farmers awareness week) will commence on January 24, the birth anniversary of former chief minister and OBC stalwart Karpoori Thakur.

"All leaders of the five-party Grand Alliance will be hitting the streets as part of the stir against the Centres agriculture policy which could reduce our farmers to the status of beggars", said Mr Yadav adding that the human chain will be held on January 30, coinciding with the martyrdom day of Mahatma Gandhi.

He declared that the stir would be as much against the Narendra Modi government at the Centre as the Nitish Kumar government in the state, "which seems to have set a precedent by having abolished APMCs a decade ago". Mr Yadav also slammed the chief ministers party, the JD(U), for having voted in favour of the farm bills inside Parliament but "hoodwinking the people of the state by speaking in a forked tongue".
