KMP Expressway Blockade, Mahila Kisan Diwas and Anti-Corporatisation Day by Samyukta Kisan Morcha

Representatives of SKM will also visit the election-bound states to give a call to punish BJP for its anti-farmer policies

Samyukt Kisan Morcha held a general body meeting of its constituents at Singhu Border On March 2, 2021. The following decisions were made:

March 6, 2021 is the hundredth day of the ongoing farmers’ protest at the borders of Delhi. SKM has decided to block the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) expressway that connects various protest sites outside Delhi, for five hours, between 11am and 4pm. Toll plazas on the expressway will be freed up from collecting toll fees. In rest of India, the day will be marked by flying black flags on houses and offices to signify support to the movement, and to protest against the government. SKM also invites protestors to wear black bands on that day.

Mahila Kisan Diwas is to be observed on March 8, 2021 by SKM. All SKM protest sites across the country will witness greater participation of women on that day, and it will be women who manage the stages and speak from these stages. SKM invites women’s organisations and others marking International Working Women’s Day to participate in support of the farmers’ movement and highlight the contributions of women farmers to the country.

On March 15, 2021, along with Central Trade Unions who are marking the day as ‘anti-privatisation’ day, SKM will support the call of trade unions by marking the day as ‘anti-corporatisation’ day, and extend solidarity to the protests of Trade Unions on that day all over India.

In election-bound states, SKM will put out a call to the public to punish the anti-farmer, anti-poor policies of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP). Representatives of SKM will also visit the states for this purpose and take part in various programs.

SKM will launch a “MSP Dilao Abhiyan” all over India. As part of the campaign, the reality of prices in different markets will be presented, inorder to point out to the Modi Government the shallowness of its MSP promises. The campaign will be initiated in the south indian states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to begin with. Farmers all over the country are invited to join this campaign.
