Bengali Hunt Desk: Rebel peasants call for a nationwide shutdown on December 6 to escalate the peasant revolt demanding the repeal of the agricultural law and increase pressure on the government. The Congress and the Left Front have already expressed support for the ban. And this time the ruling party Trinamool (All India Trinamool Congress) also gave moral support to the ban. However, the grassroots will not take to the streets on that day to make the ban a success. It's a lot like 'don't touch fish, don't touch water'.
Sudip Banerjee met members of the Akali Dal in Kolkata yesterday. After that meeting, the Trinamool expressed support for the ban. Mamata Banerjee had earlier announced a week-long program to oppose the agriculture law. The Chief Minister will also hold a rally on December 10 at Dharmatala. He called on all opposition parties to unite in the face of agricultural law.
Last Friday, Derek O'Brien met farmers protesting at the Singhu border in Delhi at the behest of the chief minister. Then Mamata spoke to the farmers on the phone. He also discussed the issue with the Chief Ministers of Delhi and Telangana. Besides, the Trinamool supremo has also instructed the Trinamool farmers' organization to take various programs in the districts.
