Eastern Times, New Delhi: The ongoing farmers’ agitation demanding the repeal of three agricultural laws and legal guarantees of MSP completed 100 days on Friday. On the call of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, farmers peacefully blocked the KMP and KGP from 11 am to 4 pm today.
With this successful event, farmers have given the message that the spirit of people is not going to fall in any season.
The farmers said that several attempts have been made to discredit this movement, but each time the govt’s plot has been exposed by the farmers. On Saturday thousands of farmers blocked the expressway connecting Delhi and also responded to the forces who believed that now the crowd on the protest sites is decreasing.
Farmers organized a mahapanchayat in Haryana’s Farmana Chaubisi in which they demanded the repeal of 3 farming laws, legal guarantee of MSP and other demands. In Haryana, opposing the agricultural laws, the effigy of the Prime Minister was burnt in Turkiawas and Dahina.
In Narayanganj, Mandla, farmers submitted a memorandum demanding the repeal of the anti-farmer black laws.
In Saundara in the Moradabad district, farmers held a panchayat under the leadership of NAPM.
On the call of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, the ‘MSP Dilao Abhiyan’ campaign is getting stronger by exposing the false claims and promises on the MSP of the Modi government. This campaign was carried out in Bellary after being launched in Gulbarga, in Karnataka.
On completing 100 days of the farmers’ movement, farmers in many parts of South India protested by making human chains. Farmers and concerned citizens made a human chain at Gunpark in Hyderabad. A farmers’ conference was held in Nalgonda, Telangana on Friday.
