New Delhi: The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) was in a way silent after the long agitation against the farm laws, withdrawal of new farm laws, and assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. But now again SKM is engaged in intensifying its activities. SKM is preparing for another agitation over issues related to farmers.
The Samyukta Kisan Morcha has convened a meeting in Ghaziabad on July 3 to discuss what will be the contours of the agitation in the coming time. The meeting will be attended by senior leaders belonging to the Morcha. The leaders of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha will brainstorm on how to take up the problems related to the farmers with the government in the coming time and get them resolved. Let us know that after the end of the agitation that lasted for more than a year in December, the activities of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha have stopped almost. After the withdrawal of the new laws after the agitation of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, it was also said by the government that a guaranteed minimum support price (MSP) would also be considered.
In fact, it was also said by the government that the committee that would be set up to ensure the MSP guarantee would also include representatives of farmers' organisations. Since then, the government has not taken any special steps in this direction. In the Ghaziabad meeting, the office bearers of the SKM can now discuss the strategy of the movement over MSP.
