Token fast observed as tribute to farmers

A token fast was observed by farmers’ activists across Maharashtra today as a tribute to “thousands” of debt-ridden farmers who have ended their life in distress. The ‘Shetkari Sanghatna’ leader Amar Habib, along with several farmers’ leaders, activists and concerned citizens observed the token fast. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
Habib observed his fast in Yavatmal district, where a farmer Sahebrao Karape had ended his life with his family on March 19, 1986. The farmers’ organisations claimed that it was the first suicide of a farmer due to agriculture distress. The activists alleged in a statement that farmers have been killing themselves in Maharashtra as well as across the country. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
The consecutive governments have been framing anti-farmer rules and regulations. The fasting is also held to protest against such move.
