Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrachkar Rao said here on Sunday that farmers can change the government if they want and they should keep fighting until they have a constitutional guarantee of remunerative prices for their crops. The Telangana Chief Minister also paid tribute to the farmers who died while agitating against the now abolished farm laws in the centre.
He acquiesced in farmers’ resolve, he said, referring to the year-long uproar that ended last year. “If the farmers want, they can change the government. It is not a big thing. From where the power comes, it comes from us. Agitation must continue until the farmers get the right price and there is a constitutional guarantee for it.” Rao also praised Punjab’s contribution to the struggle for Freedom and a green revolution in agriculture “Punjab is a great country,” Rao said.
Rao was accompanied by his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. Rao was here to distribute 3 lakh rupees as financial aid to the relatives of the farmers, who had died during the uproar against the three farm laws of the center. More than 700 farmers have died during the unrest on the Delhi border due to various causes, including harsh winters, road accidents, cardiac arrest and diseases.
