Activists representing several women organizations took out a bike rally from Gandhi statue at RTC Complex to the collectorate in Visakhapatnam on Monday demanding the repeal of the farm laws. The rally was flagged off by the former AU Law College professor S Nirmala. Later, a meeting was held at the collectorate.
State president of POW M Lakshmi said the new laws would lead to the corporatization of the agriculture sector, depriving the livelihood of the farm laborers. IN the process, this would hit the food security system of the country. She said women in the agriculture sector comprised 60 percent but only 12 percent were recognized as farmers and the rest have no rights on the lands. She said farmers fear the new laws would destroy agriculture in the country and many would be left with no work and no food.
State president of AIDWA B Prabhavathi, Mahila Chaitanya Secretary D Lalitha, and Mahila Samakhya executive president A Vimala also spoke.
