A Kisan Mahapanchayat held here on the anniversary of Mahatma Jotirao Phule’s death in the Azad Maidan called for the defeat of the BJP in all upcoming general and local government elections in Maharashtra.

The Mahapanchayat, held under the banner of Samyukta Shetkari Kamgar Morcha (SSKM), celebrated the “historic victory” of years of peasants’ protest for the repeal of central farm laws and declared its determination to fight for the remaining claims.

These include a central law to ensure a “fair” MSP and the procurement, the withdrawal of the law to change the electricity, the removal from the cabinet and the arrest of Union Minister Ajay Mishra for the Lakhimpur Death of Kheri, repeal of the four labor laws, end of the “sell-off” of the land through privatization, halving the price of diesel, gasoline, cooking gas and other essential goods, doubling working hours and wages under MNREGA and expanding it to urban areas.

The Mahapanchayat organizers claimed that farmers, laborers, farm workers, women, youth and students of all religions and castes from all over Maharashtra attended the event attended by the leaders of Samyukta Kisan Morcha Rakesh Tikait, Dr. Darshan Pal, Hannan Mollah, Yudhvir Singh, Tajinder Singh Virk, Atul Kumar Anjaan, Rajaram Singh, Yogendra Yadav, Jasbir Kaur Nat, Ashish Mittal, Dr. Ashok Dhawale, B Venkat, Medha Patkar, Jayant Patil, Pratibha Adam Shinde, Narasay, JP Gavit, Dr. Ajit Nawale and others Führer von Bauern und Arbeitern.

Tikait accused the central government of running away from a debate on MSP and other issues. “Several issues related to agriculture and the labor sector need to be addressed and we will be traveling across the country to highlight them,” he said.

Speaking to the media, Tikait said the central government should pass a law to guarantee MSP. “Otherwise January 26th (Republic Day) is not far away and all 4 lakh tractors and farmers are there.”

CPM Narasayya Adam also criticized the state government and NCP leader and transport minister Anil Parab for the strike by MSRTC workers. Adam claimed that the workers in the state-owned transportation companies were being oppressed, and if that oppression continued, all of Maharashtra would be closed. “Anil Parab Saheb, we have flexed modes, how long will it take you to flex?” said Adam.

Earlier this month the central government decided to repeal the three peasant laws, against which several peasants protested for almost a year.
