SKM national meeting also adopted the following resolutions in today’s meeting:

1) SKM firmly and unequivocally supports the protest of women wrestlers of India, who have been sitting in dharna at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar, demanding arrest of BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. SKM expresses solidarity with the sportspersons and demands immediate arrest of the BJP MP. A full delegation of SKM leaders visited the protest site, met the sportspersons and conveyed the support of SKM to them.

2) SKM condemns the unleashing of Central Agencies like CBI by the BJP Govt against former Governor Satya Pal Malik, who has been a steadfast supporter of the farmers movement and SKM. Shri Malik has been exposing the misdeeds of the BJP Govt with regard to the unnecessary loss of lives of our soldiers at Pulwama, corruption of the BJP leadership at the highest level etc. SKM lauds the bravery of Shri Malik. SKM shall support all efforts to resist the attempts of the BJP Govt to muzzle Shri Malik.

3) SKM condemns the de-recognition of the oldest unions of postal workers of India – National Federation of Postal Employees and All India Postal Employees’ Union – by the Union Govt, allegedly because these unions supported the historic Delhi farmers struggle and donated some funds to farmers organisations. SKM expresses solidarity with the unions, demands that the de-recognition be withdrawn, and looks forward to increased worker peasant unity against the anti-farmer, anti-worker BJP Govt.
