Monday, 25th January 2021

More than 6,000 farmers or agriculturists from across the 21 districts of the state came to Mumbai in a mighty convoy of about 500 vehicles to start their sit-in at the Azad Maidan spanning across 3 days in complete solidarity with the protesting farmers at the Delhi border. Senior political leaders cutting across the party lines, including celebrated Chief of the NCP Sharad Pawar, is all set to address the gathering this Monday. The farmer group has gathered under the famed banner of Maharashtra’s unit of All India Kisan Sabha’s (AIKS).

The rally is actually a response to the call by the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), which is administering the Delhi farmer protests, to strengthen as well as broaden the intense struggle from the 23rd of January to the 26th of January. More farmers are expected to join the gathering on Monday.

While the group of farmers who arrived in Mumbai this Sunday was AIKS members, other farmer associations and also political parties, including the MVA alliance, are likely to take part in this protest. Farmer groups, as well as political parties, are likely to be present on the sole platform of the Samyukta Shetkari Kamgar Morcha.

NCP Chief, Mr. Sharad Pawar is likely to address this rally at the Azad Maidan along with the other political leaders after which the group is likely to march to the Raj Bhavan to have talks with the Governor and hand over a memo against the newly framed farm laws.

As per the claims made by the AIKS group leaders more than 50,000 farmers are likely to participate in the march of Monday. This farmers’ agitation is likely to come to a close on 26th January, Republic Day morning with flag hoisting and with a vow to make this struggle of the farmers and agricultural workers a success at any cost.

“This march is being held to support and expand the historic two-month farmer struggle in Delhi for the repeal of the three farm laws and for a central law to guarantee a remunerative MSP (minimum support price) and procurement all over the country,” said Dr. Ashok Dhawale, the AIKS National President

Dhawale stated that the delegation further wanted the government of the state to make sure that the Forest Rights Act is implemented effectively.
