Honorable Narinder Modi, The Prime Minister of India.
Sub: Memorandum through Indian High commissioner in Australia Canberra
We are deeply pained by adamant and stubborn attitude of your Government towards the demands of Indian farmers. We, being sons and daughters of Indian farmers, while sitting thousands of miles away, can feel their agony.
Their fears about the new legislations are genuine. The legislations were brought about abruptly as ordinances and pushed through the Parliament without discussions with stakeholders.
The legislations are designed to favor corporates and traders. Farmers, labourers and consumers will be worst victims.
MINIMUM support price is an oxygen and safety net for the helpless small farmers.
Creation of private food grain markets without regulation by state government is an attack on federal structure as well as protection to the helpless farmers.
We as well-wishers of Indian people, call upon you, to repeal the new farming laws and give legal guarantee of MSP throughout India.
Long live Indian farmers
