Take up farmers’ demands in Parliament before any other enterprise: Samyukt Kisan Morcha | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) on Tuesday stated that it’s going to press the opposition events to make sure that the farmers’ demands on the three new agri legal guidelines and MSP are addressed in Parliament before any other enterprise is transacted through the upcoming Monsoon session.
The umbrella physique of over 40 farmer unions that’s spearheading the agitation for the scrapping of the central agri legal guidelines stated the preparation for his or her deliberate protests on the Parliament from July 22 is in full swing.
“Farmers and leaders from Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and even from distant states like West Bengal, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka are arriving at the borders of Delhi to participate in the protest.
“As deliberate by SKM, the protest will likely be deliberate and executed methodically and peacefully, with 200 farmers collaborating in the protest day by day,” it said.
The SKM said that any attempt to stop the farmers from protesting “will likely be unlawful and unconstitutional”.
The amalgam said it will issue letters to all the opposition MPs of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on July 17 as a precursor to the protest on July 22, “demanding that they increase the demands of the farmers in Parliament and be certain that these demands are mentioned and met before any other enterprise is transacted in Parliament,” it said.
Farmers, mainly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at Delhi’s borders for over seven months. They are demanding a rollback of the three contentious agri laws and also seeking a legal guarantee for Minimum Support Price (MSP).
Most of the opposition parties have openly supported the farmers’ agitation.
The three laws – The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020 – were passed by Parliament in September last year.
The Centre has offered to amend the laws but has ruled out their scrapping.
