Madhya Pradesh: What Jitu Patwari Said After Sentenced To 1 Year In 2009 Case

Fight will continue till wheat price is hiked: Jitu

After the verdict, Jitu Patwari said that he respects the decision of the court. The CM had promised to double the income of the farmers, it has not happened till date. The fight will continue till the price of wheat is hiked to Rs 3000 per quintal. This matter is also about the fight of the farmers. Give whatever punishment you want, send us to jail, hang us, but the fight for the rights of the farmers will continue.

Jitu said that he would have been happy if he had got a bigger punishment than this and the price of three thousand rupees per quintal of wheat would have been fixed. The struggle continues. The fight continues and will continue. Together we will fight this battle and win. We have a legal team, they will find a solution.
