The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) will hold its proposed national level meeting on September 4 in Delhi and will lay out its plan to increase national protest against the Union Government for not implementing the accepted demands of the farmers.

SKM member Comrade Hannan Mollah who is also a former member of Lok Sabha revealed this on Sunday during a press conference. It is important to mention that he is also the general secretary of All India Kisan Sabha. He took part in the Kisan Sabha's 40th two-day state-level delegate session, which started in Tarn Taran on Sunday.

Mollah represented the Communist Party of India (CPM) in the Lok Sabha eight times.

He criticized the Union Government for not granting the demands made by the farmers after the Delhi Morcha.

He said that despite all of the farmers' efforts, the SKM's nationwide protest had only served to remind the Union Government of the acknowledged demands of the farmers.

He emphasised the importance of giving farmers' families who lost family members while taking part in the Delhi Morcha compensation and implementing the Minimum Support Price (MSP) on crops a legally binding guarantee.

According to Mollah, the Union Government is focused on promoting communalism in the nation rather than addressing issues like rising inflation, unemployment, poverty, farmer debt, etc.

He said that every day, 52 farmers committed suicide around the nation, but the government showed no indication of concern.

Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon, state vice-president of the All India Kisan Morcha, criticised the government's decision to remove the state's authority from the Bhakhra Beas Management Board and extend the BSF's authority up to 50 kilometres from the Indo-Pak border at the time.

Additionally, he demanded MSP for farm-produced milk, vegetables, etc. The AIKS session, which will end on Monday, is being attended by delegates from all over the state.
