Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee interacted with the farmer leaders through Derek O’Brien and assured them of moral sympathy and cooperation

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has assured moral support and cooperation in a telephone conversation with Pramjit Singh, leader of the farmers’ movement in Delhi. The Chief Minister told the farmer leaders that she stands with them.

On the instructions of Mamta Banerjee, Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien reached Delhi-Haryana border and met Sikh leaders. Ms. Mamata Banerjee then spoke to the farmers’ leaders through Derek. The Trinamool Congress has been opposing new farm laws since the beginning.

Nationwide protests if new farm laws are not withdrawn

Mamata Banerjee on Thursday threatened to launch nationwide protests if the “anti-agriculture” new farm laws were not withdrawn. She wrote on Twitter, “I am very much concerned about the farmers, their lives and livelihood. GOI must withdraw the anti-farmer bills. If they do not do so immediately we will agitate throughout the state and the country. From the very start, we have been strongly opposing these anti-farmer bills.”

Mamta’s tweet on completion of 14 years of Sangar movement

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted on the 14th anniversary of the Singur movement saying “14 years ago on 4 Dec 2006, I began my 26 day hunger strike in Kolkata demanding that agricultural land cannot be forcefully acquired. I express my solidarity with all farmers who are protesting against draconian farm bills passed without consultation by Centre #StandWithFarmers.

She said she fully supports the farmers’ movement in the country demanding the repeal of the strict agricultural laws of the Center. The bill was passed without consulting the farmers. It is clear from this tweet that Mamata Trinamool Congress is once again trying to push this move ahead of the assembly vote.

Mamata Banerjee wrote on Twitter that the central government cannot sell railways, Air India, coal, BSNL, BHEL, banks, defense etc. The policy of immovable and privatization should be withdrawn. She says, ‘We will not allow the conversion of our nation’s treasury into a BJP party.’
