Truth, justice, equality and rationalist ideologies are the foundation for the growth Rajya Raitha Sangha from past three decades. This has also ensured the bribe free working of government offices, scientific rates for agricultural products, abolishing the seizure of farmer’s house, amendments to criminal and civil codes, abolition of levi grains collections, abolition on restrictions for grain transportation, loan waiving, abolition of land and irrigation tax and abolition of law on piece of land are the key highlights of the struggles that Rajya Raitha Sangha has come through. It also made another revolution by opposing the system of land revenue, and grown beyond the people who were opposing the globalisation and liberalisation.
In the protest against the entry of the multinational companies to India, Rajya Raitha sangha had also understood the seriousness of the major proposals such as Gyat and Denkal. On October 2, 1994, Raitha Sangha had also organised the first ever protest against the Globalisation in Bengaluru. In 1995, Raitha sangha also waged war against the world food chain outlets such as KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut and other companies which were marketing foods by adding poisonous preservatives. Beside this, we also opposed the International Film and Miss Universe competition. On September 11, 2003 we destroyed the laboratory of Maansaanto seed company in IISC, which was producing the environmental hazardous seeds.
In 1987, the farmers’ revolution strongly was converted into political revolution, which gave birth to a political party called ‘Kannada Desha Paksha’. In the Vidhan Sabha elections took place in 1989, Babugowda Patil won two constituencies – Kitooru and Dharwad rural over Rajya Raitha Sangha ticket. Later, Patil resigned the Dharwad rural constituency and made the way for the political debut of Professor Nanjundaswamy, who became the main voice for farmers in Vidhan Sabha. Nanjundaswamy raised the questions on cultural, farmers’ rights, sensitivity of morality, water rules and village centric issues and pressured on government to enforce it.
In 1994, KS Puttanaiah was elected from Pandavapura constituency (now Melukote) over Rajya Raitha Sangha ticket, who also became the voice of farmers in the Vidhan Soudha, and won the hearts of other legislatures and media personalities. He was the first person to raise the concern over the issues related to women.
