Farmers Protest

Leaders of Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) have appealed to the people of Punjab not to shift their focus from the ongoing protest against the three agriculture laws amid coronation of new Chief Minister in the state.

The farmers' movement has nothing to do with "political games," according to the morcha, which has been protesting at the Barnala railway station for 355 days.

“All of this commotion is part of a strategy to win elections in 2022 with fresh faces. People's economic conditions are deteriorating by the day as a result of the government's anti-people and pro-corporate policies, and politicians have no solution to the people's problems,” according to SKM leader Manjit Singh Dhaner.

He also urged protestors to concentrate on preparations for the Bharat Bandh on September 27 and appealed young people to participate in a five-day kabaddi tournament beginning on Wednesday at the Delhi border.

According to Bhupinder Singh Longowal, a member of the Kirti Kisan Union's state committee, they have been conducting meetings and rallies in villages to mobilize locals to take part in the Bharat Bandh to protest the new agriculture laws.

“We are educating and motivating people from all walks of life to make Bharat Bandh a success. The SKM leaders also held a meeting with all representatives of farmer unions in view of the upcoming strike in Sangrur. We have also decided to meet the vyapar mandal leaders to hold a joint protest on September 27,” added Longowal.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) is an association of more than 40 Indian Farmers' Unions, who coordinate the satyagragh against the three agricultural legislation that started in September 2020. It is important to mention that the farmers protest will complete 10 months of continuous agitation on 26 September 2021.
