Students of Jahangirnagar University (JU) yesterday urged to the government to ensure fair price for paddy farmers across the country. They also demanded a steady policy about buying paddy from farmers.
The demand made at a human chain at the premises of university’s central Shaheed Minar around 12.30pm.
They protest made under the banner of “Sadharon chhatra odhikar songrokkhon porisod” while over 50 leaders and activists of the body took part at that human chain.
Joynal Abedin Shisir, Joint Convenor of the JU branch of “Sadharon Chhatra Odhikar Songrokkhon Porisod”, said, “Bangladesh is walking on the way of development.This statement has become false today. The price of the paddy produced by the farmers is TK 10 per kg, but we have to pay Tk 60 per kg.If we only hear false development stories, how will the farmers live?The country will sustained if the farmers has to save.”
The convenor of JU unit Shakiluzzaman, joint convenor Adib Arif, Rezaul Amin, coordinator Abu Sayeed and others also spoke on that human chain.
