Dear Friends,

I am in full solidarity with Panjab’s anti-Farm Laws protests by farmers, labour, arthiyas, young and old, children, women and men. However, we must also notice that arrogant BJP has remained adamant in its position and is increasingly pushing Panjab towards an immense crises.

Not only the farmer unions, the politicians, even the CM are right now banging their heads against a wall. Meanwhile, essential urea and DAP for farming potatoes and wheat is not reaching Panjab. There is an acute coal crises for power generation. There is huge backlog piling up with industry, could amount to Re 15 lakh crore loss as per ASSOCHAM.

In this scenario, and even in 2018 when the NITI Ayog head told Panjab to no longer be the granary of the nation, what should Panjab do?

From my understanding, I propose a few steps to move towards natural cooperative farming which will actually be a huge social and economic revolution in Panjab. Discussion invited.

I hope sense prevails. That does not mean we end protests. Instead, it means we buy time from the Centre to transition Panjab’s agrarian culture. Thank you Punjab Today for carrying this slightly long piece.
