The Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti has squarely blamed the IAC and all other political parties for shifting focus from the main issue of agrarian crisis in Vidarbha region, which has witnessed thousands of farmer suicides.


The allegations of IAC activist Arvind Kejriwal on BJP National President Nitin Gadkari were restricted to Vidarbha irrigation water crisis limited to one dam.

Instead of Vidarbha farmer suicides, upcoming power plants, water diversion and misuse of irrigation water, IAC's single point agenda was to show the unholy relationship between BJP-NCP,  Janandolan Samiti president Kishore Tiwari alleged.

He urged all political parties and civil society members to take forward the issue to its logical conclusion to stop mass genocide of innocent farmers who are real victims.

"We demand IAC to focus on main demands of Aam Aadmi, who are living in remote villages and are dying without food and medicine. The basic need is to change wrong model of development and perfect India's economic policy and protect innocents besides exposing the corrupt," Tiwari said in a release.
