A thread to present different perspective on #farmersact2020
A Sikh is required to donate at least 10% of their yearly wealth to the poor and to also help and serve the needy voluntarily. We are the most generous people among all.We pray for prosperity of all

Small and marginal farmers,who constitute 85 % of the peasant community, will benefit the most from these reforms as the Law gives them an option to sell their produce outside agriculture 'mandis' for a better price. currently der r only 585 'mandis' which are mostly unregulated
Farmers from Punjab and Sikh community in particular have always been the strongest pillar of India's shining growth. Can't we generously accept and give a chance to the deprived and the marginalized ones who do not get the equal opportunities? Image
MSP is availed mainly by Punjab & Haryana. New farm laws are required for the diversified agriculture system of India which will be suitable for perishables, high value crops, flowers and other products. States which don’t grow wheat & rice will also benefit under new system. Image

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?

Questions no one wants to answer :

1. Being very much surplus in wheat and paddy production why should Punjab not shift to other cultivations ?
2. How long and to what extent can FCI keep buying the two items when stocks are overflowing in their own godowns.?
3. Should not Govt prescribe quota upto which only FCI will buy?
4. Is not this the time to change crop patterns in Punjab when subsoil water is going down mostly on acct of paddy cultivation ?
BTW some predictions say Punjab will be a desert in 15-20 yrs
5.Why can't we give ample opportunities to marginalized farmers of other states?
6.What business opportunists have in farmers protest?
7.If the law is so bad why so many farmers org. are in favor ?
8.Why few are hijacking while majority of farmers don't have issue with the Law?

A Thread on Hidden history of Owaisi's AIMIM : What MIM doesn't want you to know
The party was founded in 1927 for providing a cultural and religious platform to the Muslims living in the principality of the Nizam of Hyderabad.
Then known just as MIM, it expanded overnight under Bahadur Yar Jung, a charismatic personality whose speeches drew the masses.
Jung died prematurely in 1944 – some claim he was poisoned – and the MIM leadership passed to Qasim Razvi, who headed the Razakars, the dreaded Muslim militia which was constituted to oppose Hyderabad’s merger with India.

To add to it some facts:

”The Government’s policy for East Bengal was spelled out in the Eastern Command headquarters at Dacca. It had three elements:

1. The Bengalis have proved themselves unreliable and must be ruled by West Pakistanis.
2. The Bengalis will have to be re-educated along proper Islamic lines. The – Islamization of the masses – this is the official jargon – is intended to eliminate secessionist tendencies and provide a strong religious bond with West Pakistan.
3. When the Hindus have been eliminated by death and fight, their property will be used as a golden carrot to win over the Muslim middle-class. This will provide the base for erecting administrative and political structures in the future.”
