'Aap Ka Haq focusses' on suicides among farmers

Janmat continues in its crusade to sensitize the common man about the ills that plague society through its ground-breaking show ?Aap ka Haq?. Be it the 1984 Delhi Riots or police lock-up deaths Aap ka Haq has attempted to approach socials ills and find long-lasting solutions.

Positioned as a show that proactively engages in the problems of common people, ?Aap ka Haq? walks that extra mile with the victims, the persecuted, the forgotten and downtrodden and actively seeks a resolution of their problems with the help of government authorities, NGOs and the civil services. In short, ?Aap ka Haq? not only listens to your plight but seeks to alleviate it.

Anchored by Shekhar Suman, the Aap Ka Haq episode to be shown at 10.00 p.m. on Saturday on 11th February raises the politically sensitive subject of farmers? suicides. Not one day goes by without at least one news item telling the grisly tale of another farmer biting the dust, literally by his own hands. On the show farmers speak out about their harrowing existences while politicians of both sides of the power equation as well as NABARD officials give them a patient ear. Viewers will be forced to think of the unjust balance of power and the lopsided laws of our country that has practically disenfranchised the man of the soil.

This is the first time in the history of television when farmers, politicians and agriculture department officials have shared a platform to hear the harrowing life stories of Indian Farmers, fighting hunger, famine and neglect.

At least 25,000 recorded suicides of farmers have occurred in recent years. On the show, the farmer?s representative is Sone Singh from Punjab, who tells his tale of abject misery and loss. He lost his grown up sons, his farm land and his means of livelihood, yet he held out for some help from the government. The government, as usual, turned a deaf ear. There was no direct help, cutback in subsidies, no heed to environmental changes. And to add insult to injury, the government has accepted WTO agriculture conditions.

Listening to Sone Singh, perhaps in dismay, were former Agriculture Minister Chaturanan Mishra, Advocate Indrajit Singh, who is fighting on behalf of 1300 Punjab farmers? families where the farmer has committed suicide, FE correspondent Ashok Sharma, Vir Chowdhury of Bharat Kisan Samaj, ICAR official Naresh Sirohi, NABARD official A D Ratnu and farmer?s leader Karan Veer.

Positioned as India?s first Views Channel, Janmat has brought a fresh breeze in the country?s TV viewing landscape. Janamat is a 24-hour current affairs channel targeted towards the discerning Indian audience. JANMAT has an ear to the ground, and allows the common man to express his grievances for swift redressal.

Catch ?AAP KA HAQ? on Janmat at 10.00 p.m. on Saturday, 11th February.
