A newly formed Political party-National Freedom Party (NFP)- is all set to bring in big and revolutionary changes in agriculture and cooperative sector for the welfare of the farmers. On the occasion of its launch function in New Delhi recently, the party and its newly appointed national/state committee pledged to resolve the problems of farmers, youth; especially unemployment.
The formation of NFP was spearheaded by the Vivekananda Foundation; a New Delhi- based NGO engaged in social works and has lakhs of volunteers across the country. The Foundation and its entire cadre & support base has now become the integral part of the party.
Talking to reporters after the launch ceremony, Party President, Pramod Tiwari said, “A new political party has been formed to bring in real and revolutionary changes in the country. Our prime focus would be on farmers’ and unemployment issues.”
“We are ready to take on big ones in every state in the coming elections. However, we are focusing on Gujarat, Punjab, Goa and Tripura initially and will contest all other Assembly elections in the next two year, followed by General Elections in 2019,” he added.
“The Party, with its aim to provide a viable alternative to distraught farmers, youth and other weaker sections including senior citizens, minority and women, will contest all Assembly seats of its own in states like Punjab, Goa, Gujarat and Tripura. Process of selection of candidates has already begun. We will give priority to farmers who wish to contest elections,” Tiwari emphasised.
The Party is spearheading a new political movement with the help of its farmers & youth cadre, intellectuals and support of those who seek real change in the system. The Mission is to mobilize farmers and youth of the country to join this movement which seeks to reform the system and would provide better governance option with new elements like ‘Know Your Government’ (KYG).
“We held all major political parties responsible for pathetic state of affairs in the country. There is no growth oriented development or inclusive growth, agriculture and cooperative sectors are in deep crisis, unemployment, hunger & corruption are on all-time high, law and order situation worsening day by day. Farmers and youth are frustrated. In such a scenario, we will bring in real change,” Amlan Biswas, National Convener said.
“To get rid of all ills, created and promoted by politicians with vested interests, I appeal youth of our nation to fight against the rampant corruption in our system and work for ‘system upgradation’ . This is for those who want to work for the betterment of the poor farmers, labourers, and for the upliftment of weaker and helpless society,” Pravin Kantari, Gujarat President said.
