HYDERABAD: Expelled leader of the Aam Aadmi Party Yogendra Yadav on Sunday launched the ‘Jai Kisan Movement’  here in Hyderabad under the banner of his own outfit, Swaraj Abhiyan-Telangana.

The movement was launched in the presence of members of the steering committee of Telangana and a number of farmers. “Farmers who wish to be a part of the Jai Kisan movement during our mass-contact programme, may send pots of soil, ‘kalash’. Thousands of such pots from across the country will be sent to Parliament,’’ he said.

Yadav called it a movement of the farmers, but insisted it was not just for farmers alone. “We also aim to involve urban citizens, especially the youth. This is a movement for reshaping the country’s future,” he said.

Swaraj Abhiyan aims to become a strong voice against the injustice being done to farmers. In the initial phase of Jai Kisan movement, Swaraj Abhiyan has started a mass-contact programme, wherein volunteers will reach out to farmers to understand their problems and establish a dialogue with them, he explained.

Over the next two months, the volunteers will cover around one lakh villages nationally and around 1000 villages in Telangana to tell the villagers about the successive governments’ deception, he said.

The demands of Jai Kisan movement include withdrawal of the land bill andenacting the Farmers’ Minimum Income Guarantee Act. People willing to join the Swaraj Abhiyan may contact 011-4666-6662, Yadav said.
