The Samyukt Kisan Morcha has called up the organisations and platforms of farmers, workers, students, youth, women and other sections including small traders, journalists, professionals, retired workers etc to join hands to convene Jana Mahapanchayat across India asking the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to explain why farmers peaceful protest was stopped by the Union Government.

According to SKM, the Jana Mahapanchayat will appeal to people to discuss the livelihood issues- Agrarian Crisis, Minimum Support Price, loan waiver, unemployment, Labour Codes and privatisation of the public sector among others replacing the Ayodhya, religious disputes and narratives on corporate development by the RSS-BJP combine that divert the attention from the real issues of the people.

The Delhi Police detained 400 farmers from Karnataka at Nizamuddin Railway station in Delhi and prevented them from attending the Mahapanchayat on March 14, 2024, at Ramlila Ground. The Delhi Police ordered Delhi Gurudwaras not to serve langar, or provide shelter to farmers thus blocking them from holding high their great tradition of selfless service to humanity.

“Even today, the farmers are blocked at the Haryana border and the Haryana state government led by BJP had killed Shubkaran Singh a young farmer on 21st February 2024. The BJP has given Kheri seat to Ajay Mishra Teni, the main conspirator of the Lakhimpur Kheri farmers’ massacre. BJP has become the political agent of Corporate – Communal- Criminal -Corrupt Nexus that controls the political economy of India. Posters and banners will be put up in the villages raising these questions to the BJP.” the release from SKM read.

The Sikkim Kisan Morcha said that the Prime Minister never called the farmer’s representatives to discuss the burning issues raised during the 13-month-long historic farmers’ struggle and the governance in the last ten years reveals the dictatorial tendencies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said the SKM release.

“Though the model code of conduct has come into force, the Modi government has dared to arrest and jail the opposition leaders including Arvind Kejriwal and Hemant Soren, the chief ministers of Delhi and Jharkhand respectively, seized the accounts of the opposition political parties and the Enforcement Directorate summons the candidates of opposition political parties on pending cases thus denying the level playing ground to the opposition. The situation brings apprehension on the Election Commission of India, the statutory institution, whether the election will be conducted in a fair and trustworthy manner.” SKM added.
