Five Farmers Demanding Fair Prices And Loan Waivers Killed In Police Firing In Madhya Pradesh

by | June 06, 2017


New Delhi | June 06, 2017: Today afternoon, police forces opened fire at the protesting farmers in Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh. As per reports, five farmers killed and many left injured in the attack by police officials. The farmers have been on strike from June 1 to June 10 demanding loan waivers and fair prices for their produce. NAPM condemns the state brutal action against the agitating farmers. State has completely failed to address people’s concerns and to save their faces they are rampantly using violence to silence the dissenting voices. The voices cannot be crushed even after suspension of internet services in parts of states like Indore, Ujjain and Dewas all in the western parts of the state. We condemn the foul play of state govt. restricting farmers of the state in reaching out to the people of country for support and solidarity to their demands.Read More »

It took comedian John Oliver just over twenty minutes on Sunday night to destroy nearly everything said during President Donald Trump’s announcement last Thursday to withdraw the United States from the international Paris agreement on climate change.

Calling Trump “a fucking egomaniac” with a “ludicrous misunderstanding” of the Paris deal and human-caused global warming, Oliver could hardly contain his exasperation as he performed a running fact-check of the president’s remarks.
