The JJP MLAs who were earlier supporting the movement in the suppressed tongue, have now come out in the open. So far, three Independents and three JJP MLAs have raised their voice in favor of the farmers. While JJP MLA Jogi Ram Sihag has turned down the chairman’s post, the outspoken MLA Rajkumar Gautam on Sunday sounded good to the central government. JJP MLA Amarjeet Dhanda has also openly supported the farmers’ demands.
Independent MLA Balraj Kundu was already in support of the farmers, leaving the post of chairman, Sombir Sangwan has withdrawn support from the government a few days ago. MLA Dharampal Gondar has also justified the farmers’ movement. He has even said that there are farmers first, then the post of MLA. If the movement is prolonged, then some other JJP and other independent MLAs may also come out in support. This will increase the pressure on the coalition government. At present, there is no heat on the government, but after the outcome of the agitation and the ongoing negotiations between the farmers and the central government, the JJP has already indicated the decision to take a final decision.
Strong foundation of peasant jajpa
Farmers in Haryana are considered to be the strong foundations of the Jananayak Janata Party. Since the time of Chaudhary Devi Lal, large farmer families associated with Lok Dal and INLD had joined JJP in the last assembly elections. Because of this, the party won 10 seats. The JJP does not want to let them go on their own, so the JJP leaders are repeatedly saying that they should accept the demands of the farmers.
BJP is supporting new laws
The Haryana BJP is supporting the new agricultural laws by describing them as being in the interest of farmers. Agriculture Minister JP Dalal is calling these laws a boon for farmers. He says that these will have far-reaching consequences. Economic condition of farmers will improve. Neither MSP nor Mandis will be affected by these.
