SKM condemns DAV School in Chennai Incident
Samyukt Kisan Morcha condemns the management of the DAV School in Gopalapuram, Chennai, for publishing prejudiced presumptive questions for students to write an essay on, the January 26 tractor parade in New Delhi. The questions reflect the prejudice of the management against farmers and their peaceful protest.
All India Kisan Sangarsh Coordinating Committee, Tamil Nadu released a statement today, strongly condemning this pro-government and anti-farmer stance taken by the management of the DAV School.
AIKSC Tamil Nadu has strongly condemned the act of setting up a question paper which suggests that the violence on January 26, 2021 was an international conspiracy. In its statement the Coordinating Committee observed that the question paper suggests that the protesting farmers indulged in criminal activities by damaging public property, insulting national flags and attacking the police. In its statement AIKSC Tamil Nadu noted that the school administration with questions like this was propagating ‘slanderous picture of farmers’ and they ‘strongly condemn this act of the school’.
SKM condemned politically motivated IT raids on Independent member of Haryana Legislate Assembly Balraj Kundu. Kundu has been a vocal opponent of the BJP-led government in the state; he has also been actively supporting the farmers’ agitation.
