Warangal Urban: Urging traders, shopkeepers, and others to support the Bharat bandh call given by farmers’ associations against the draconian farm laws of the Centre, Government Chief Whip and Warangal West MLA Dasyam Vinay Bhaskar took out a bullock cart rally from Kazipet railway station to Ekashila Park in Hanamkonda here on Monday.
Before kicking off the rally, he submitted a petition to the Station Manager, Kazipet Junction Railway Station, to halt the trains in support of the farmers’ bandh on Tuesday. “The TRS will stand by the farmers. Party workers will actively participate in the Bharat bandh led by Indian farmers. Telanagana government led by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao is taking several steps to strengthen the farm sector in the State, spending nearly Rs 60,000 crore on agriculture. But the BJP-led Central government is attempting to hand over the agriculture sector to corporate companies,” he said.
Stating that the Central Acts were against the interest of farmers, he said the Union government was blackmailing farmers.
