Farmers Voices Must Be Heard: Indian-American Congressman

Vastavam web: Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna has hoped for a peaceable and truthful resolution to the farmers’ points in India, saying he’s inspired by the continued dialogue between the protesting farmers and the federal government. Mr Khanna, 44, was lately elected for a 3rd consecutive time period from the congressional district representing Silicon Valley. “India and the US share a rich tradition of democracy and peaceful protests. Farmworkers are the backbone of both our nations and must have their voices heard. I hope there’s a peaceful and fair solution so they can provide for their families,” Mr Khanna mentioned in a tweet on Saturday.

“I am encouraged by the ongoing dialogue,” he mentioned, becoming a member of different American lawmakers who’ve expressed their views on the continued farmers’ protest in India, a number of of whom have expressed their considerations. “As Co-Chair of the American Sikh Caucus in Congress, my office has received first-hand accounts of the horrific crackdowns on protestors who are trying to peacefully express their disapproval of India’s recent agricultural reform legislation,” mentioned Congressman John Garamendi, who together with two different lawmakers wrote a letter to India’s Ambassador to the US, Taranjit Singh Sandhu early this week.
