Ludhiana, November 8

Former Union Minister Balwant Singh Ramoowalia has expressed concern that if the farmers' struggle was not resolved soon, it could lead to a reduction in the boundless powers of the Union Government, which would have far-reaching consequences. If that happens, it would not be easy to control the situation.

In a press statement issued here today, he said the Union Government was pursuing a policy of crushing the struggle by inciting and exhausting the farmers, which was wrong. He said history had shown that peasant struggles had overthrown the governments in many countries like China, Russia and Cuba. Even US President Abraham Lincoln was rendered helpless in wake of the peasant struggle, he added.

The former Union Minister recently announced the renaming of his Lok Bhalai Party (LBP) as Lok Bhalai Mission (LBM).
