 To mark ‘undeclared emergency’, farmers call for gherao of Raj Bhawans across country on June 26

DELHI, INDIA – DECEMBER 18: Farmers shout slogans as they participate in a protest at the Delhi Singhu border on December 18, 2020 in Delhi, India. Hundreds of thousands of farmers from surrounding states have been protesting on the outskirts of Delhi for weeks, blockading highways leading to the capital. Farmers say they are protesting against laws that deregulate the sale of crops, which they say will put them at risk of losing their livelihoods and land to big corporations. The government has said that the reforms are necessary to improve the efficiency of the agricultural sector, which is heavily dependent on government subsidies to survive.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) will stage demonstrations outside Raj Bhawans across the country on June 26 and observe the day as “Kheti Bachao, Loktantra Bachao Diwas”.

“June 26, 1975 was a black day in India’s history as on this day the government had announced the Emergency. The present situation is not far from that. It is like an undeclared emergency. Our agitation against the Centre’s three farm laws completes seven months on June 26. We will observe the day as Kheti Bachao, Loktantra Bachao Diwas. We will protest outside Raj Bhawans across the country,” said Inderjit Singh, vice president, All India Kisan Sabha, Haryana. According to SKM, memorandums addressed to the President of India will be handed over to state governors.

Farmers protesting against the Centre’s farm laws have been agitating for over six months. Many have camped at the borders of the national capital. Despite several rounds of talks between the Centre and the farmer leaders last year, the deadlock remains.

Farmers have been protesting at the different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws – 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.
