Since some of us Indians are still slaves of the white man, here are a series of tweets from a UK Member of Parliament, Mr. Bob Blackman about the farm laws. These slides/posters are quite good because they are easy to read and understand, as though its Farm Laws for Dummies. There are too many shrill voices and constantly shifting goalposts in the farmer protests 2020, so these posters help in understanding what its all about and what its not.
Here is the slideshow with all the posters that Mr. Blackman had tweeted –
I love the way these two posters have been made by whoever made them.
Let it sink in – Farmers can sell more than MSP with the new laws and the new laws ensure that there are legal mechanisms in place should a buyer not pay the farmer in time. So why are the farmers protesting ??
The answer to that is the last item on the following poster –
Let this sink in too – In the new laws farmers are NOT at the mercy of the politically controlled APMC mandis. Who are some of the politicians controlling the mandis ? The poorest farmer of India, Sharad Pawar who has one unexplainable transaction of 70 billion POUNDS … benefitted from the mandis. Also the Badals, husband and wife duo have declared 500 crores assets between them … so poor that they can single handedly fund the farmers protest :).
We have been fed so many lies, packaged so beautifully and repeated so often that we have accepted them as truth. The fact is, the farm laws are beneficial to the farmers. The farmers protest 2020 has nothing to do with the farmers. Its all the middlemen like the Badals and Sharad Pawar who stand to lose their MASSIVE incomes year on year for just being in the middle. It is also all those forces inimical to India’s growth that have joined forces.
Stop being dummies. Support the real farmer, not these fat middlemen (literally and figuratively).
