 Over one lakh tobacco growers across the country on Thursday submitted written appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow their participation in the official Indian delegation to the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control Conference of Parties (FCTC COP7). 
The farmers, under the banner of Federation of All India Farmer Associations (FAIFA), have demanded the policy makers to promote balanced regulations to safeguard the interests and livelihood of millions of small farmers and rural workers. 
According to FAIFA, the appeal is demonstration of disappointment and resentment towards WHO FCTC regulations. 
FCTC COP meeting is being hosted by India in Noida between November and 12, 2016. 
"It requests the government to reject the extreme FCTC proposals, which are not evidence based. 
The farmers plead with the policy makers to promote balanced regulations to safeguard the interests and livelihood of millions of small farmers and rural workers and their families, said B. V. Javare Gowda, President of FAIFA. 
"A democratic and participative approach in the formation of the Indian delegation to COP7 will ensure that the farmers' and the industry viewpoint on various proposals arising out of the COP7 agenda is taken cognizance of, said Gowda. 
The appeal has also been submitted to various concerned ministries such as the the Health Ministry, Agriculture Ministry, Finance Ministry and the Commerce and Industry Ministry.
