1500 People March from Agriculture Minister’s Constituency to Delhi in Solidarity with the Farmers Protest

December 17, 2020

Beginning today, 1500 small farmers and agricultural laborers under the leadership of Rajagopal along with Ekta Parishad, Samanvayon ka Samanvay, Jai Jagat and the Sarvodaya Samaj, will march towards Delhi to express solidarity with the farmers who have been protesting since November 26th against the new agricultural laws introduced by the Government of India.

“We want more people to get land and become farmers, rather than farmers to become landless because of anti-small farmers laws and policies” says Rajagopal PV, as he sets out on the satyagraha.

For the past 22 days 250,000 farmers from more than thirty unions from Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan (with support from others from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and various parts of the country), have been braving the cold by blocking eight entry points into the nation’s capital. They are protesting against laws that will open the sale and marketing of agricultural products outside the notified Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) known as mandis for farmers.
There have been several meetings between the farmers and government negotiators but as of yet, no breakthrough is in sight.

Beginning from the constituency of the Central Agriculture Minister, Mr. Narendra Singh Tomar (Morena, Madhya Pradesh), the fifteen hundred marchers will begin their satyagraha march towards Delhi, demanding that the government negotiate in good faith with the farmers.
Ekta Parishad and participating organizations re-affirm and calls for the use of nonviolent action even though there is good reason for frustration on both sides. The government has been intransigent and unwilling to revoke the laws and reenact new legislation that meets the needs of both parties.

The farmer’s demands are now:

  • To convene a Special Session of Parliament to repeal the laws and make minimum support price (MSP) and state procurement of crops a legal right.
  • To give assurances that the conventional procurement system will remain.
  • To implement the Swaminathan Panel Report and peg the Minimum Support Price at a least 50% more than weighted average cost of production.
  • To cut diesel prices for agricultural use by 50%.
  • To repeal the Commission on Air quality management and remove the punishment for stubble burning.
  • To abolish the electricity ordinance of 2020 that interferes with state government’s jurisdiction.
  • To withdraw cases against farm leaders and release from detention.
