AIKMS Peasants

Peasant March in Delhi on 20.07.2019

The All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) organized a protest black flag march today from Mandi house to Parliament Street today to declare Modi Govt’s announcement of MSP as a betrayal of peasants on the election promises made by the govt. AIKMS members from Punjab and UP participated in significant numbers. Nearly three thousand peasants participated in the March which started under the heavy downpour.

The peasants exposed the ‘historic’ betrayal of the Prime Minister who has claimed that he has fulfilled his poll promises on MSP, by raising Black Flags and shouting – Modi ka MSP Dhokha Hai. Central Government had promised the peasants fifty percent profit on comprehensive cost (C2 – as mentioned in Swaminathan Commission report) has adopted the same formula of A2 + FL by which Manmohan Singh Government had fixed MSP for crops.

Two Bills for Farmers’ Freedom From Debt and Guaranteed Remunerative Minimum Support Prices, prepared by AIKSCC (a co-ordination of 200 peasant organisations) and were scheduled to be tabled in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha today. The peasants also declared their No Confidence in Modi govt because of the betrayal.

While the Govt has restricted announcement of MSP to only 14 crops the peasantry has been demanding MSP for all crops including fruits and vegetables and Milk amongst other agriculture related produce.… Read More

  1. Immediate implementation of minimum wage and dearness allowance.

Protest Against Attack on Swami Agnivesh

CPI(ML)-New Democracy strongly condemns the physical attack on Swami Agnivesh in Pakur in Jharkhand on July 17, 2018 by the hoodlums of RSS linked youth wing. Swami Agnivesh was physically assaulted by these goondas and sustained injuries due to this attack. A statement by a BJP Minister in Jharkhand leaves no doubt that this attack was carried out at the behest of RSS-BJP Govt. of Jharkhand.

This attack is part of the violent attacks being carried out by RSS through its affiliated organizations to suppress all voices of dissent. RSS is targeting all democratic personages supporting the struggles of oppressed sections including tribals, dalits and minorities.

Jharkhand Govt. has been increasingly attacking tribals, changing law relating to acquisition of land and rules of Forest Rights Act. They are dispossessing tribals of their land and means of livelihood and suppressing their struggles.

RSS aims to silence their voice and crush the struggles of these sections. RSS-BJP is increasingly exposing its anti-people and fascist character through these attacks.

CPI(ML)-New Democracy also condemns that despite two days since the attack, no arrest has been made of the attackers. The enquiry ordered by the state govt. is merely an eyewash.

CPI(ML)-New Democracy demands that a judicial enquiry by at least a sitting judge of a High Court should be conducted to find out the conspiracy behind this attack.… Read More
