Prayer and homage meetings were held all over the country to pay respects to the five martyrs and 631 other farmers who were martyred in the current agitation. The sense of outrage amongst ordinary citizens against the impunity of BJP Ministers and leaders is palpable everywhere, as they seek justice in this case.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha proclaimed that it will not allow the sacrifice of the martyrs of the Lakhimpur Kheri massacre, and that of more than 630 others in the movement so far, to go in vain.

 Lokneeti Satyagraha Kisan Jan Jagran Padayatra reaches historical and revolutionary Ballia town 

The Lokneeti Satyagraha Kisan Jan Jagran Padayatra reached historical revolutionary Ballia town in Uttar Pradesh this afternoon, after leaving from Dubhahr this morning. The Yatra is in its eleventh day today. After covering 24 kilometers by foot, the padayatra will reach Phephna tonight, and would have covered around 200 kilometers so far. Today’s question to Mr Narendra Modi from this Yatra is – “why are essential issues like education, incomes, medicine, rising costs, fair prices not part of your agenda even after so many years of being in power?”.

Today, on the 54th death anniversary of Dr Ram Manohar Lohia, famous freedom fighter and socialist thinker and leader, Samyukt Kisan Morcha pays its respects to him. SKM remembers Lohia’s famous lines – “Jab sadke sooni hoti hain to, sansad awara ho jati hain”, and believes that they are as applicable today as when Lohia first uttered them.

Along with the five martyrs of Lakhimpur Kheri massacre, SKM today also paid its homage to the five soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country in an encounter in Jammu & Kashmir – Jaswinder Singh, Saraj Singh, Gajjan Singh, Mandeep Singh and Vaisakh HK.

SKM notes with grief and pride that Sepoy Gajjan Singh who was married only four months ago, took a farmer union flag proudly on his baarat.

SKM has always been saying that kisans and jawans are in this struggle together, of protecting the country. SKM also pays homage to the innocent civilians killed in the past ten days in terrorist attacks in J&K.

In Rudrapur of Uttarakhand, farmers organised a black flag protest when a local BJP leader came to take part in an event in the APMC and expressed their anger at the lack of prompt payments to farmers.

SKM Condemns the Sexual Assault on Women Protesters in Delhi

SKM condemns the FIRs registered against five Benares Hindu University students who were protesting against the Lakhimpur Kheri massacre. SKM also condemns strongly the horrible sexual assault that Delhi Police subjected two women protestors to, when women students protested against Lakhimpur Kheri Massacre outside Home Minister Amit Shah’s residence in Delhi on 10th of October. The protestors have stated that ‘these were not isolated acts committed by some rogue Delhi Police personnel. The manner in which the violence was meted out identically to both women, shows that the women personnel have received training and instructions to treat women protestors in this fashion “to show them their place.”’. SKM supports the demand that the ACP of Chanakyapuri be dismissed and the police personnel who subjected the protestors to the disrobing and assault be suspended and reprimanded.
