With the rising protests by the farmers associations over the contentious farm bills in Bengaluru city, Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa appealed to the farmers to pull out from the demonstrations and protests and invited them for further talks with the government.
While addressing the reporters at Vidhana Soudha, Yediyurappa stated that repeated protests will not be allowed in the state. He said, “It is questionable if such protests are held daily. There is no opportunity to organize bandhs again and again. Please cooperate with the government. If you have any reservations (on farm Bills), come, let’s discuss them.”
He appealed to the farmers to stop the protests and padayatras saying more than farmers associations and groups, BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are in favour of the farmers. He said, “Modi-ji is making special efforts to double farmers’ income. At such a juncture, holding such events that unnecessarily inconvenience people is not right. People will not appreciate it.”
The farmers associations in Karnataka had launched an indefinite stir on December 7 to protest against the three key farm laws passed by the Centre. The protests had further aggravated after the BJP led state government passed the controversial Karnataka Land Reforms (second amendment) bill, 2020 in the legislative council with the backing.
