Samyukta Kisan Morcha is an umbrella physique of 40 farmer unions, which has been spearheading the continued protests in opposition to Centre’s three farm legal guidelines.
The march will probably be held to observe one yr of the motion in opposition to these legal guidelines.
“The SKM decided that from November 29 until the end of this Parliament session, 500 selected farmer volunteers will move every day to Parliament in tractor trollies peacefully and with full discipline, to assert their rights to protest in the national capital,” it mentioned in an announcement.
This will probably be carried out to “‘increase the pressure” on the central authorities “to force it to concede the demands for which farmers across the country have launched a historic struggle”, it added.
Earlier at this time, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) chief Rakesh Tikait warned the Centre of intensifying the farmers’ agitation within the Purvanchal area in ballot-certain Uttar Pradesh.
“The upcoming Kisan Mahapanchayat in Lucknow will prove to be the “final nail within the coffin for the three black legal guidelines and will probably be historic”, he mentioned on Twitter.

He also said that if the administration pulls down farmers’ tents at protest sites, they will set up tents at police stations and District Magistrate’s offices.
Farmers have been protesting at different sites since November 26 last year against the three enacted farm laws which are: Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
The Centre has held 11 rounds of formal talks with the farmers and has maintained that the new laws are pro-farmer. The agitating farmers, however, claim they would be left at the mercy of corporations because of these legislations.
The Winter session of Parliament will begin on November 29 and go on till December 23.
