The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) on Wednesday announced a “Parliament March” within the first fortnight of May. The date for the march is yet to be decided. this is often yet one more symbolic protest against the three contentious farm laws, which are projected by the Centre as major reforms within the agriculture sector which will remove the middlemen and permit farmers to sell their produce anywhere within the country. However, farmers have time and again expressed apprehension that the new laws would pave the way for eliminating the security cushion of the Minimum Support Price (MSP) and do away with the “mandi” (wholesale market) system, leaving them at the mercy of massive corporates.The ‘Parliament March’ are going to be joined not just by farmers, but also by women, and unemployed individuals, and labourers who are supporting the movement.
Farmer leader Gurnaam Singh Chaduni said the march would be administered during a “peaceful” manner, and special care would be taken that “what happened on January 26 isn’t repeated”.
Farmer leaders also are getting to form a committee to regulate protesters if there’s military action in parliament march.
“We will form a committee to let the protestors know what to try to to just in case there’s military action during the march. “It also will be made clear to them that SKM condemns all types of violence. therefore the protestors will know that if there’s any damage of property by them, they’re going to need to serve the penalty,” a farmer leader said.
Farmer leaders also announced their plans to dam the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal expressway for twenty-four hours on April 10.
“We are going to be blocking the KMP expressway on April 10 for twenty-four hours, that’s from 11 am on April 10 to 11 am on subsequent day. “We are going to be doing this because the govt has not been taking note of us. it’s been sleeping. this is often to awaken the govt ,” another farmer leader said.
