Punjab: Farmers resort to stubble burning in protest against prohibition orders

STUBBLE_BURNING_PUN

Following the lead of farmers in Sangrur, farmers in Sheikhupura village of Gurdaspur district also burnt crop residue on Thursday to protest government's prohibitory orders on stubble burning.

Over a hundred farmers had gathered outside the NGT premises here on Wednesday to attend the hearing on the issue and put forth their submissions and grievances through a lawyer before a Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar.

The protesting farmers lashed out at the government for not making proper provision before implementing the order, and asserted that substitute to stubble burning is expensive machinery, which is not a possibility for debt-ridden farmers.

In Punjab's Sangrur district, a large number of farmers have started burning their stubble to press in their demands.

"Can you produce a single farmer in entire Punjab before us, whom you can produce before us and say that you have given him any kind of assistance?" "You think you have no obligation to anyone on this earth". They said that farmers will manage stubble on their own if the government provided them incentive.

BKU Dakunda general secretary Jagmohan Singh said that Punjab government had adopted a small village - Kalar Majri of Patiala with just 390 acre land under paddy - just to save its skin before the NGT. "Our expense will increase if we don't burn stubble; our land will not be ready for sowing and the cropping season will get delayed", said a protesting farmer, and added that government should pay them compensation to cover their losses.

Five states-Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi-had issued notifications prohibiting agriculture crop residue burning to curb air pollution.
