The SKM organized a Kisan Mahapanchayat on Sunday. Farmers gathered in huge numbers for the said event at Muzzafarnagar. When asked about violation of COVID norms in the event, Bhartiya Kisan Union’s leader Rakesh Tikait replied “No one questioned the Yatras organized by government. The laws made by the government are more dangerous than COVID. Pandemic will kill you in one go but the laws of the government will kill people slowly”.
Furthermore, Sanyukt Kisan Morcha has called for a Bharat Bandh on September 27th. Farmers have been protesting in and near Delhi since November 26th, 2020 against the three farm laws proposed by the Centre.
The conflict between Central Govt. and farmers continues as the latter refuses to budge until their demands are met. Both the parties involved are yet to reach any mutual agreement even after an year of protests, conflicts and discussions.
