Kisan Mahapanchayat in Jind, Haryana

SKM thanked the people of Haryana who showed their full strength against the anti-farmer BJP and the JJP government. The anti-farmer face of the JJP, which describes themselves as a party belonging to the farming community, has been completely exposed. These MLAs have no political future because of ongoing movement and this expresses the defeat of no-confidence motion. Farmers have sown seeds of opposition and resistance against these anti-farmer faces and results will be harvested soon. Haryana farmers intended to intensify this protest by socially boycotting all BJP and JJP leaders.

Today March 10, as the historic farmer’s struggle completed 105 days, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) organised a massive Kisan Mazdoor Ekta Mahapanchayat at Alewa in Jind district of Haryana. It was addressed by Ashok Dhawale, Joginder Singh Ugrahan, Surekha, Phool Singh Sheokand, and many other leaders.

Today, Kisan Mazdoor Mahapanchayat was organized at Dulheri in Bhiwani. Unanimous decisions were taken in the panchayat that three agricultural laws and laws related to electricity and pollution should be repealed and a law should be made on MSP.

“No vote for BJP” rally in Calcutta

Today a big rally was organized in Calcutta, in which the main slogan was “No vote to BJP”. Farmers leaders like Manjit Singh Dhaner, Harnek Singh, Raminder Singh Patiala, Suresh Khoth, Manjit Singh Rai, Abhimanyu Kohar, Ranjit Raju and others participated in this rally. More than 10 thousand students, youth, farmers, workers and concerned citizens participated in this rally.

This farmers’ movement is completely peaceful. Some websites are sending threatening messages related to the Kisan movement through software called “SARBLOH RANSOMWARE” which is not related to the Samyukta Kisan Morcha or the farmer organizations of Punjab. We do not support such methods of protests under this movement.

This farmers movement has been strong in all seasons. This movement, which started the last summer in Punjab, has kept itself alive even in the deep winter.
