‘We are proud to be Andolan jivi’ : Samyukta Kisan Morcha

Farmers would like to remind the PM that it is andolans that have liberated India from colonial rulers and that is why we are proud  to be Andolan jivi.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha condemns the insulting of farmers by the Prime Minister. Farmers would like to remind the PM that it is andolans that have liberated India from colonial rulers and that is why we are proud  to be Andolan jivi. It is the Bharatiya Janata Party and its predecessors never did any andolan against the British and they were always against andolans. They are still scared of social movements.

Farmers point out that they would be more than happy to get back to farming if the government accepts their legitimate demands. It is the Government’s adamant attitude that is creating more “andolan jeevis”.

SKM pointed out that empty statements on Minimum Support Price (MSP) will not benefit farmers in any way. Such meaningless statements were made in the past too. Farmers will benefit only if MSP is made into a legal guarantee for all crops.

SKM points out that the PM’s Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) approach is dangerous. We distance ourselves from any “Foreign Destructive Ideology”. However, SKM stands with democratic processes that uphold basic human rights. It expects similar reciprocation from all like minded citizens all over the world because “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.

SKM questions the commitment of the government towards fulfilling farmers’ demands. It questions the fact that the government is introducing the Electricity Amendment Bill 2021, despite assuring farmers’ organisations of withdrawing the draft bill.

SKM notes that the huge turnout and support extended by Kisan Mahapanchayats in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh are highly encouraging. The protesting farmers at the borders are strengthened by the same.

After Twitter accounts, music videos related to the ongoing farmers’ protest have been removed from YouTube. We strongly oppose these efforts to suppress the voice of people.
