Farm laws repeal: SKM to hold meeting on November 27

In a press conference held at the Singhu border on Sunday, the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) said that protest events will take place as per schedule for the time being. It further added that a meeting will be held on November 27 to decide on the future course of action. Farmer unions will also write an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighting their remaining demands.

“We will write an open letter to the prime minister. In the letter, we will highlight several issues including the legal mandate for MSP. The amendment to the Electricity Act will also be a key issue. Our demand seeking action against the minister for the Lakhimpur incident will be mentioned in the letter as well,” Balbir Singh Rajewal said.

The leader further said that the march to Parliament at the end of the month will take place as per schedule. Meanwhile, the SKM has given the call for a mahapanchayat in Lucknow on Monday. Rakesh Tikait and several other leaders will shortly reach the Uttar Pradesh capital to review the preparations.

The unions have appealed to farmers across the country to gather at protest sites to mark the first anniversary of the agitation against the Union farm laws on November 26. The occasion will be marked by tractor rallies across state capitals. On November 26 last year, the first set of farmers had arrived from Punjab and Haryana to protest at the Singhu border.

From November 29, the SKM will send 500 farmers in tractors every day to Parliament to protest during the forthcoming Winter Session.
