Farmers will block the KMP-KGP highways from 8 AM on April 10, 2021 to the same time on the next day, as a warning to the government, said the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) during a press conference.

On Friday, farmer leaders announced a series of events planned for April from Saturday to the last week of April. Following the highway blockade, protesters will celebrate the foundation day of Khalsa Panth on April 13, at Delhi borders while simultaneously paying respects to martyrs on the anniversary of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

The next day is declared as the ‘Save Constitution Day’ and ‘Kisan Bahujan Unity Day.’ Protest site stages will be occupied and managed by agitators of Bahujan Samaj spokespersons.

“In their spirit of hatred and division, BJP leaders can perform various programs in Haryana by presenting farmers and labourers as enemies. We appeal to all Dalit-Bahujans and farmers to protest against these forces while remaining peaceful,” said farmer leader Darshan Pal.

The SKM said that on the same day, Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala has “deliberately” organised a program in Kaithal town. It called upon all protesters to decry the event by demonstrating peacefully at maximum number.

Later on April 18, farmers will honour the participation and dedication of local people by calling them on SKM stages and handing over its responsibility to them. Two days later, Rajasthani poet Bhagat Dhanna’s birth anniversary will be celebrated. The soil of his village, Doha Kalan, will be brought to Delhi borders and farmers will commemorate his memory with on-stage programmes.

Finally, the national struggle will complete 150 days of protest on April 24. The day will be marked by week-long special programs in which farmers, labourers, employees, youth, traders, students and other organisations will be called to join the Delhi morcha.

April’s last week will see a national convention of organisations supporting the farmers movement to plan and intensify the nationwide struggle. The official date for the Parliament march will be announced after completion of these events, said farmers.
