The Samyukta Kisan Morcha leads a total of more than 40 farmer unions in the country. The Morcha on Friday announced that it would organize ‘Raj Bhavan Gherao’ across the country on June 26 to mark the completion of seven months of their protest against the three new central agriculture laws. Farmers will demonstrate and show black flags outside the official residences of governors in the respective states during the June 26 protests. The front will send a memorandum to President Ram Nath Kovind through the governor of each state. SKM’s farmer leader Inderjit Singh said that this day will be celebrated as “Save Agriculture, Save Democracy Day”.
Singh said, “We will show black flags in Raj Bhavans. Each state shall protest by giving a memorandum to the President through the Governor, who is the representative of the President. This (June 26) is also the day when emergency was declared in 1975 and seven months of our protest are also being completed. In this atmosphere of dictatorship, along with agriculture, the democratic rights of the people have also been attacked. This is an undeclared emergency.”
Farmers are camping on the borders of Delhi
Thousands of farmers, mainly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, are camping on the borders of Delhi to protest against the three laws. The protesting farmers say that with the implementation of the new agricultural laws, they will be left at the mercy of big corporates and the MSP regime will end. The government has said that all these concerns are baseless and the new laws are farmer friendly. The Supreme Court has stayed the implementation of the laws till further orders and has constituted a committee to look into the issues.
Formation of special committees for women protesters
On June 24, farmers on all the borders will celebrate the birth anniversary of Sant Ravidas. Meanwhile, addressing the concerns of women protesters, farmer leader Suman Hooda said special committees would be formed by Saturday evening dedicated to women at the protest sites. “We have received some complaints from our women protesters. I want to assure them that these committees will work only to address any problem they face. Their contact numbers will also be shared by Sunday.”
