2/7. India’s 140 billionaires account for 0.000014 per cent of the population. But they hold wealth equivalent to 22.7 per cent of our Gross Domestic Product of $ 2.62 trillion, bringing that whole other meaning to the word 'Gross.'

3/7. The total wealth of our top 2 $ billionaires, Ambani ($84.5 billion) and Adani ($50.5 billion), is far greater than the gross state domestic product of Punjab ($85.5 billion) or Haryana ($101 billion) whose farmers they stand pitted against.

India, Farmers Protest, Monsanto, Bill Gates

Monsanto and the Poisonous Cartel of GMOs in India

The accurate word for Bill Gates' faux philanthropy would be “fail anthropy." As country after country bans the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)…
"Monsanto is trying to subvert India's patent laws: Protection of Plant Variety and Farmers Right Act, Essential Commodities Act and Competition Act."
"In another theatre, Monsanto and Bayer are merging. They were one as MoBay (MonsantoBayer), part of the poison cartel of I.G. Farben. The controlling stakes of both corporations lie with the same private equity firms."

🔎 'Corporate concentration in the US #food system makes food more expensive and less accessible for many Americans' 💵🌽🇺🇸

🗞️ Excellent new piece in the @ConversationUS by @hendricksonm & IPES-Food's own Phil Howard 👇🏾

Quick thread! 🧵/1…
"We’ve closely followed #corporate consolidation of food production, processing and distribution in the U.S. over the past 40 years. In our view, this process is making #food less available or affordable for many Americans," say Hendrickson & Howard. /2
"Consolidation has placed key decisions about our nation’s #foodsystem in the hands of a few large companies, giving them outsized influence to #lobby policymakers, direct food and industry #research and influence #media coverage." /3

Here is my thread in-line with your tweets🙏
as an #AndolanJeevi #IStandWithFarmers on #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP Guarantee
@Gen_VKSingh Now, it is clear that the Govt is adamant on #suspended #farmlaws and is misusing even #parliament to tell Lies on #MSP
refusing MSP Guarantee act to prevent below MSP purchase by anyone in India.
We Step back and understand the true ramifications of this situation for #Annadata
@Gen_VKSingh When do #Sellibrities become active to tweet on agriculture subject? When they get hints or advice, being a celebrity is a sensitive expectation from the powers and they are close to the heart of every Indian. #AndolanJeevi #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP

Have been watching the evolution of @DilipGhoshBJP with admiration. Over the last four years he has really come of age and emerged as a leader to reckon with in #WestBengal vindicating his selection as @BJP4Bengal President. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
2/n PM #NarendraModi takes stage - referring to the #UttarakhandAvalanche drawing a link between the source of the Ganga in #Uttarakhand and its meeting with the sea near #Haldia. #ModiInBengal #WestBengalElection2021
3/n As per @DilipGhoshBJP the gathering is around 3 lakhs from the 3 districts of erstwhile undivided #Medinipur. Impressive mobilisation. Certainly @SuvenduWB's entry would have made a big difference. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021

Please read the following and Answer the question that follows :

"A" is a farmer.
"B" is a trader/middleman.

"A" produces his farm products and takes 50 km away in a 'Mandi' after harvest to sell.

"B" asks him to come next day as the weighing wont be possible.

"A" asks him to do it the same day as he has travelled very far.

"B" asks him how much is he expecting to get paid ?

"A" says Rs 1700.

"B" again asks him to come next saying, that he will get Rs. 1300 today.

A takes a deep sigh and thinks.
Travelling again to and fro, so long, will cost him more. So he agrees at the rate "B" proposed.

Now the porters will unload the whole produce..
And even after that, "B" takes 'Rs. 50' as his commission leaving total of Rs. 1250 with our farmer "A".

Mahabharata in the present day context of #FarmerProtest .
We all know the divinity and might of Bhagawan Krishna. If he wished, Krishna could have easily annihilated the Kauravas in one instant. He gave them opportunities to see reason of avoiding war. He also patiently.../
....allowed Shisupal to make 100 mistakes. Why did Krishna allow the adharmics to such extent? Without knowing the full characteristics of Duryodhana/Dushasana in front of public, if they were killed, today's generation will even suspect Krishna's motive of killing Kauravas..
Whereas by offering to go to Hastinapura as the messenger of peace on behalf of Pandavas, Krishna did all possible to get just 5 villages but Duryodhana didn't yield. This paved the way for Dharma yuddha. Present day #FarmersProtest is the same in Kaliyuga. With leftists

ऐसे सवाल जिनका जवाब कोई नहीं देना चाहता:

1. गेहूं और धान के उत्पादन में बहुत अधिक अधिशेष होने के बाद भी पंजाब को अन्य खेती में क्यों नहीं स्थानांतरित करना चाहिए?
2. कब तक और किस हद तक एफसीआई सिर्फ दो फसलों को खरीदता रहेगा जब स्टॉक अपने गोदामों में बहुतायत में होते हैं?
3. क्या एफसीआई द्वारा खरीद के लिए सरकार को कोटा तय नहीं करना चाहिए?
4. क्या यह पंजाब में फसल के पैटर्न को बदलने का समय नहीं है, जब धान की खेती के कारण मिट्टी का पानी ज्यादातर नीचे जा रहा है?
कुछ भविष्यवाणियां भी कहती हैं कि पंजाब 15-20 साल में रेगिस्तान होगा
5. हम दूसरे राज्यों के किसानों को समान अवसर क्यों नहीं दे सकते?
6. किसानों के विरोध में अवसरवादी क्यों समर्थन कर रहे हैं?
7. अगर कानून इतना खराब है तो इतने किसान संगठन पक्ष में क्यों हैं?

Sir, with ref to your very much needed sensitive response, in ordinariness of #ordinarypeople & with commonsense of
#commonman, may we submit as follows:
1.Instead of experimenting with #3FarmActs for 1-2 yrs, why not keep those in abeyance for 2yrs?
2. Ask #40AssnsofFarmers>>
>> to submit their #ProposedDraft keeping following in view:
a. #Reforms inter-alia shifting from existing agriculture pattern in #Punjab #Haryana etc to...
b."Cost + theory" & feasibility of #MSP for all crops
c. Is uniform #FarmActs possible for all #States
3.Likewise #GOI >>
>>needs to appreciate that instead of "experimenting" for
1-2 yrs which if results in #irreversible & #irrevocable DAMAGES will be creating more
#TrustDeficit, it will be better to keeping #3FarmActs in #Abeyance to hv #LevelPlayingField to make needful decisions cordially!>>

From uprooting mobile towers to cries of #BoycottJio— the farmers’ protests in India are heating up and spreading far and wide…

It’s been over a month since #farmers arrived at the border of India’s national capital, #NewDelhi, to protest the country’s three new contentious #FarmLaws.

The critical sixth round of talks scheduled to take place on December 29 has now been postponed to December 30 at the government’s request.

1) #SinghuBorder I will be sharing Several photos and video that I collected from the protest site. As I was passing through protest site I was seeing several things that I want all of you to see and notice. I want to expose the design behind them. #FarmersProtestHijacked
2) As I drove by towards #Chandigarh on NH1 I noticed several school buses and pickups trucks with warm blankets going to & fro from Punjab. It was as if people on border were being replaced by new fresh lot. It looked very organised. Like troop movement #FarmersProtestHijacked
3) #FarmersProtestHijacked It didn’t like a #Farmers protest at all. The camp setup near #Murthal was setup in a very organised way. Hot water Hamam for bathing,fire wood stock all neatly stacked up like in a cantonment area or a forward military unit. With plenty of water supply
