Hanamkonda District, September 20, 2021: The CPI (Maoist) central committee has extended it’s support to the Bharat Bandh called by farmers for September 27, 2021.
In a press statement issued on Sunday, CPI (Maoist) central committee spokesperson Comrade Abhay stated that the party supports the bandh call, given by farmers against the Centre’s farm laws, and the ongoing peasant movement for the past 10 months.
The Maoists condemned the Yogi Adityanath government for making a bid to curtail BKU’s Kisan Maha Panchayat, which was held in Muzaffarnagar on September 5. Hindutva forces brought BJP to power at the Centre and were instigating riots in UP. Sixty-two persons had died in attacks by Hindutva forces and 50,000 people became homeless since 2013. They were trying to foil the farmers’ agitation, however, the farmers were advancing towards success against Hindutva forces for the past 10 months.
