Lucky Ali sings for Indian farmers

Lucky Ali did a performance at a concert in New Delhi last evening in Siri Fort Auditorium as a part of ‘Oxfam Make Trade Fair ‘ campaign, urging people to sign a petition to save Indian farmers from exploitation. The campaign is battling against unfair WTO agricultural trade rules that force developing South Asian countries to open their markets for foreign farmers to bring in their produce. The resultant cheap imports force Indian farmers to sell their produce at low rates leading to rise in poverty levels.

Meanwhile, the US and several European countries have all barred the Indian agricultural goods from entering their markets by putting up various non-tariff barriers. Being a farmer himself, Ali believes it is his duty to stand for this humanitarian cause, speak up for the Indian farmers and spark motivation in them.
