Comrade Provash Ghosh, General Secretary, SUCI (Communist), issued the following statement on 27 may 2021:
“We congratulate the people of the country for observing ‘Black Day’ responding to the call of Sanjukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), the leadership of the historic peasant movement.
The peasants’ movement going on for the last six months in the different borders of the state of Delhi in which lakhs of peasants braving all odds, difficulties and attacks are involved, is unparalleled in the history of democratic struggle of the people of our country. This struggle against the three Farm Acts of the BJP led Government which are aimed at allowing grabbing of agricultural lands and products by the profit-greedy multinationals evicting millions of peasants and agricultural workers in a country where already billions are landless and jobless. During the last six months, nearly five hundred peasants have embraced martyr’s death in this struggle. Their sacrifice, courage, undaunted spirit and firm determination are inspiring example before all the exploited and oppressed people of our country.
From the very beginning, we are in this movement with all our might and resources. And we shall fight to the last. Because we know mere issuing statements in support will not help. The situation demands active participation of all left-democratic parties and forces to develop countrywide movement to compel the fascist BJP Government to concede to the legitimate demands of the peasants. Moreover this movement represents the interest of all sections of people of the country.
From the very beginning our party is in this movement with all our might and resources. And we shall fight to the last. The situation demands active participation of all left, democratic parties and forces to develop countrywide well organized, sustained movement involving workers, peasants, students, youths, women and other sections of people to compel the fascist BJP Government to concede to the legitimate demands of the peasants.”
Earlier, Comrade Provash Ghosh in a statement dated 24 May 2021 had called upon the people of the country to observe 26 May as “Black Day” to express solidarity with the fighting peasants.
