Hindustan Times (Patna) - - METRO - Prashant Ran­jan ht­plet­ters@hin­dus­tan­times.com

ARA: Mem­bers of the Akhil Bhar­tiya Rash­travadi Kisan San­gathan (ABRKS) on Sun­day called for unity among labour­ers and farm­ers.

Ad­dress­ing a farm­ers’ meet at Ko­randihri vil­lage un­der Sa­har block, na­tional pres­i­dent of ABRKS, Indu Bhushan talked about var­i­ous prob­lems be­ing faced by farm­ers and labour­ers. He said the gov­ern­ment spends only 2% on agri­cul­ture, de­spite the fact that 80% farm­ers in the state were de­pen­dant on it. He also in­di­cated about a new po­lit­i­cal equa­tion in the near fu­ture.

Deven­dra Singh, the dis­trict spokesper­son of the as­so­ci­a­tion, said ABRKS would work for the unity among labour­ers and farm­ers.

He said the or­gan­isa tion would try its best to call Di­pankar Bhat­tacharya, the gen­eral sec­re­tary of CPI-ML, on the same plat­form.

Ear­lier, the chief guest and BJP leader, Bishesh­war Ojha said when­ever a so­ci­ety went into sleep­ing stage, the evil power be­come dom­i­nant. There was a need of awak­en­ing in the so­ci­ety so that no such power could raise its head, he said.

Re­call­ing the mo­ments spent with late Barmesh­war Mukhiya, Ojha said the killers of Mukhiya were roam­ing free and peo­ple have the power to check them. Congress MLC Jy­oti Devi al­leged that the state gov­ern­ment was re­spon­si­ble for the killing of Barmesh­war Mukhiya.

The func­tion was presided over by Nand Kishore Pandey, the pres­i­dent of the vil­lage com­mit­tee of the or­gan­i­sa­tion and con­ducted by Pintu Singh.
