On Sunday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said farmers can change the government if they want and they should keep fighting till they get a constitutional guarantee for proper prices of their crops. KCR also paid tributes to the farmers who died during the agitation against the Centre’s now-repealed farm laws.
Telangana CM bows to farmers for their grit and determination, he said referring to the year-long agitation that ended last year. “If farmers want then they can change the government, it is not a big deal. The power comes from us. Agitation should continue till farmers get the proper price with a constitutional guarantee,” he said. K Chandrashekar Rao also lauded the contribution of the Punjab people to the freedom struggle and bringing the green revolution to the farming sector.
KCR was accompanied by his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann. Rao was here to distribute 3 lakh INR as financial assistance to the families of the farmers, who died during the agitation against the three farm laws introduced by the Central government. More than 700 farmers had died during the course of the stir at the Delhi borders due to various reasons, including cardiac arrest, harsh winter, road accidents, and ailments.
