Indian ’intellectuals’ and so called ‘educated‘ class.
By Justice Markandey Katju
Most of you had regarded farmers as backward, uneducated idiots, but they have solved the basic problem plaguing India, i.e. how to unite the Indian people, which you with all your so called ‘education’ and half baked bookish knowledge ( which I call gobar ) could not solve.
By their present ongoing agitation the farmers have smashed the feudal barriers of caste and religion, and thereby begun the Long March of the Indian people ( which unlike the Chinese Long March will no doubt take 10-15 years ) and culminate in establishing a political and social order under which Indians will enjoy a high standard of living and get decent lives.
Long live the Indian farmers !
