Don’t fight against farmers instead fight against covid-19: Samyuktha kisan Morcha to centre

The Samyuktha Kisan Morcha, a coalition of farmers’ union, asked the central government on Sunday to focus on battling Covid-19 rather than fighting with farmers and labourers.

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of farmer unions, on Sunday said the government should fight against the coronavirus and not with farmers and reiterated they will end the agitation only if their demands are met.

It also urged the government to set up vaccination centres at the farmers protesting areas, and provide necessary equipment and instructions to them for protection from the virus.

According to a statement, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) said when the pandemic is again on the rise, the central government should deal with this situation with immediate effect while worrying about the farmers and labourers which they had “ignored” when the lockdown was imposed last year.

“From Delhi’s borders to other parts of the country, farmers protest will end only when the demands of the farmers are met. The government should also make every effort for the health and social security of the migrant labourers so that they do not face any problem. If the government is really concerned with the farmers and labourers and the general public, then they should accept the demands of the farmers,” the statement said.
