Venue: In front of Odisha Assembly
On 16th December 2010 more than 2000 farmers demonstrated in front of Odisha assembly under the leadership of NAVNIRMAN KRISHAK SANGATHAN and demanded Rs.5000 security pension to every farmer and Rs.5000 price of 1 quintal paddy. It was not like a political party’s rally and people were not carried by trucks of politician’s money. More than 2000 farmers came out spontaneously at their own cost by the call of Navnirman Krishak Sangathan. Since more than one year Navnirman Krishak Sangathan, a non party revolutionary organization has been raising the issue of price and Pension for farmers and continuing the movement process initially at Jagatsinghpur District and in throughout the state. It is purely truth that, farmers are fully neglected and deprived from all the developmental process. In other hand present development process is being established at the cost of labour and life of farmers. Now a day government officials and politicians are getting salary and pension of minimum Rs.12000 to Rs.1 lakhs, but there is not any security pension for farmers. And cost of paddy is also so less comparison to other market produces. So how farmer and his/her family will survive?? So more than 2000 farmers demonstrated in front of assembly of Odisha on the issue of Rs.5000 security pension to every farmer & Rs.5000 price to 1 quintal of paddy. Mr. Akshay Kumar, convenor of Navnirman Krishak Sangathan, farmers leader Mr. Sesdev Nanda, Umakanta Bharat, Rasmiranjan Swain, Snehansu Jena, Prasanna Kuanra and Ramakant Jena leaded the demonstration and spoke to gathering. A team of farmers met Chief Minister and submitted a memorandum on the above issues.
