CHANDIGARH, Punjab—The Sanyukt Kisaan Morcha, a collaboration of more than 40 farmers’ bodies, has shot a letter to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking resumption of talks over to repeal three contentious agriculture laws introduced by the Indian government last year. Notably, the talk between farmers and the Indian government had disconnected after January 22 this year.
The Sanyukt Kisaan Morcha has said that they are not in favor of putting farmers’ health to risk at this time but they also can’t end this struggle as it’s a question of the survival of their next generations.
The Sanyukt Kisaan Morcha has also announced to mark May 26 as a Black Day because the ruling BJP will complete its seven years on this day. Also, the farmers’ struggle at Delhi borders will complete six months on May 26.
“If the Indian government doesn’t take any positive move to pursue talk over repealing of the trio farm laws by May 25 then we’ll be forced to chalk out further course of action,” said the Sanyukt Kisaan Morcha.
In the letter written to Modi, the Sanyukt Kisaan Morcha has also asked him to commit the state’s resources for controlling Covid-19’s surge across India. “All the Indian citizens should be availed vaccine within six months free of cost,” reads the letter.
Meanwhile, all the left and right-leaning farmers’ bodies including CPI, Kisaan Majdoor Sangharsh Committee Punjab, etc. have announced to support the call of Sanyukt Kisaan Morcha for observing May 26 as Black Day.
