Farmer writes a letter to PM Modi's mother: Farmers continue to protest on the borders of Delhi against the three central agricultural laws and the protest at the Singhu border on Friday entered its 72nd day demanding repeal of agriculture laws as well as legislation on MSP.
Now, a farmer who is protesting against the farm laws from Punjab’s Ferozepur district has written an emotional letter to PM Modi’s mother Hiraben Modi, and has requested her to ask her son to scrap the three agricultural laws that have triggered a widespread protest across the country.
Harpreet Singh, a farmer wrote in the letter to PM Modi’s mother in Hindi, “I am writing this letter with a heavy heart. As you would know that the annadatas who feed the nation and the world are forced to sleep on the roads of Delhi in this chilling winter due to three black laws. This included 90-95-year-olds, children, and women. The cold weather is making people ill. They are even being martyred, which is a cause for concern for all of us."
Adding, “This agitation at borders of Delhi is being held peaceful against the three black laws which have been passed by the government at the behest of Adani, Ambani, and other corporate households. The farmers are unhappy and disappointed because of these laws and are concerned about their children. The farmers of the country do not want any amendments in these laws but want to get them repealed”
Harpreet Singh has been protesting against the farm laws for months along with several other farmers. He was arrested in Shimla a few days ago for holding a protest without permission and was given a bail after being detained for a day.
Singh also asked PM Modi's mother to convince his son to repeal the laws by pulling his ear. He stated, “I am writing this letter with a lot of hope. Your son Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister of the country, he can withdraw the farm laws that he has passed. I feel, a person can refuse anyone except his mother because in our country mother is considered a god. Your son, PM Modi will never refuse your request,"
“I’m hopeful that your son will listen to you and repeal these black laws. The entire country will thank you. A mother can order his son by pulling his ear. If these three laws are scrapped, then it would be victory for the entire country and nobody will be defeated,” he mentioned.
