Mamata Banerjee, founder Chairperson All India Trinamool Congress and chief minister of West Bengal, on Monday said the farmer community across the country was suffering due to the Central government’s indifference.

Mamata Banerjee took to micro-blogging site Twitter and expressed that she felt pained at the fate of farmer ‘brethren’ throughout the country.

Mamata Banerjee said, “On this day, ten years back, the Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Bill 2011 was passed in the WB assembly after a long & difficult struggle.”

“We unitedly fought for the rights of our farmers & addressed their grievances, bringing in positive change in their lives,” she continued.

West Bengal chief minister said, “Today, it pains me that across the nation our farmer brethren are suffering owing to the indifference of the Centre,” and added, “Together, we shall continue our fight to ensure the well-being of the very backbone of our society. Upholding their rights remains a top priority.”

On Wednesday, she had said that her next political move would be to remove Prime Minister Narendra Modi from power.

“I have only one thing to say: Modi has to be removed from power,” she said when asked by journalists what role she wants to play in national politics.

During the day, she met leaders of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), including Rakesh Tikait, at the State Secretariat and extended support to the farmers’ union protesting against the three Central farm Bills.

She would write to the Chief Ministers of the Opposition-ruled States to support the cause of farmers, she had stated.
