RESOLUTION


Farmers Suffer Unprecedented Crop Loss; Declare It A National Calamity

Unseasonal rains and hailstorm across the country has led to unprecedented losses and rural India is in acute distress. The peasantry across the country are in acute distress and a spurt in farm suicides in many States is being reported even as the Government continues to be in a denial mode. The Agriculture Ministry’s conservative estimates initially reported that crops were destroyed in about 1.81 crore hectares of land across 13 States. The trail of destruction is unprecedented when one considers the fact that the total area under rabi cultivation is around 6 crore hectares. In effect around one-third of the total area under rabi cultivation has been affected. Two days after the Agriculture Minister reported that crops were damaged in 1.81 crore hectares, the Central Government has reduced 75 lakh hectares and presented a “revised” data charging the States with over-estimation and deliberate over-reporting. What greater insensitivity can be displayed in times of such a national calamity? The magnitude of the crisis is far beyond whatever the Government is claiming as it does not take into account many States.

The reality is that the Government figures do not include crop losses in States like Bihar, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Kerala, Odisha, Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Assam and other North-Eastern States due to the unseasonal rains which are continuing and expected to continue till early April.  Jammu and Kashmir has been hit by another round of floods with widespread destruction and loss of lives. The BJP Government is clearly downplaying the magnitude of the destruction.

This Meeting of Peasants, Agricultural Workers, Mass Organisations, Trade Unions and People’s Movements demands:
·         The Central Government must immediately declare the unprecedented crop loss across the country and floods in Jammu and Kashmir a National Calamity and announce a Relief Package taking full responsibility.
·         A Special Session of Parliament, State Chief Ministers Meet, Meeting of Peasant and Agricultural Workers’ Organisations must be convened to discuss the Emergency situation.
·         Joint Monitoring Group must be formed to monitor the Relief and Rehabilitation.
·         Waive All Loans of the Peasantry and ensure Crop Insurance Payment taking account of losses in each field.
·         Provide time-bound Compensation for Peasants and Share-Croppers covering Cost of Production, Yield and Income Loss (Not less than Twice the Cost of Production).
·         Provide Compensation for Agricultural Workers equivalent to the prevalent Minimum Wages for 3 Months.
·         Ensure employment under MGNREGA and supply free food grains to all affected families for the next 3 months.
·         Provide Inputs for the next season Free of Cost making Input providers and Insurance Companies contribute to a Special Corpus Fund.
·         Waive Electricity Bills of Farmers, Share-croppers and Agricultural Workers
