The tamasha-type well planned, well-orchestrated and well implemented the so-called farmers’ agitation, much touted as the Kisan Andolan has, as was expected fizzled out. Despite its months long grand planning which included the means to combat teargas shells and rubber pellets of the security forces, the farmers had to eat a humble pie in being not able to cross the Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi borders.

The violent attempts to break the police cordons at one or two places from Punjab were successfully thwarted by the authorities who enjoyed an all out repulsion order from the respective state and central governments.

The seasonal editions of this type of stage-managed farmers’ agitation, in fact, nothing to do with real farmers. The farmers of Punjab have mostly pooled up their holdings in societies. The native-farmers have already migrated to Canada, Germany, USA and Australia in search of greener pastures. At home, the societies are cultivating lands with the help of migrant labourers from the states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh etc.

These workers are not the stake-holders in agitation. Despite any outcome of the agitation, they would only get their contracted wages. Others leaving in Punjab with their siblings or children abroad have already converted to Christianity. As the word, Khalistan has been a much defamed word going against the patriotic Sikhs, these so-called turban-wearing Christians are promoting the divisive concept of Christianity ! Therefore, it is no surprise that the entire logistics and money and muscle power has been arranged by the anti-India foreign based organisations including the Missionaries and Jihadis. They have nothing to do with the well-being of real farmers of the country.

That is why, every time they re-launch the agitation, they come up with a score of illogical and impracticable demands, so that the government will not be in a position to accept them and stop them from indulging in violence in the name of peaceful protests. The demands for the Minimum Support Price (MSP) is said to be the bone of contention. The agitators know it fully well that India being a Member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is duty bound to do away with all agricultural subsidies in a phased manner. Other countries such as, Canada, U.K, USA are also the members of the WTO. In their own countries, these countries too, are expected to abolish agricultural subsidies. Despite such constraints, the Indian government has shown leniency towards farmers while other countries are quite rigid on this count. Then, come other demands such as monthly pension to farmers, according special treatment to the so-called farmers etc. The country can ill-afford to such arm-twisting tactics of the agitation managers because, India not only has a population dependent on agriculture but also other avocations and occupations besides services.

By now, it has become crystal clear that the crypto-farmers lobby has nothing to do with the toiling farmers in fields, but they are the parasites leaving in the air-conditioned apartments and dancing to the tunes of their foreign anti-India bosses. Sooner the menace is crushed with an iron-hand, better it would be for the nation.
