Women farmers hold ‘Kisan Sansad’ at Jantar Mantar

Mahila Kisan Sansad was organized at Jantar Mantar on the completion of eight months of the farmers’ movement. A number of 200 women farmers reached Jantar Mantar at around 11:10 am in buses. Women farmers were brought from the Singhu border under the security cover of Delhi Police. The women participating in the Kisan Sansad unitedly proposed to withdraw all three agricultural laws, which were passed with an absolute majority. Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Gul Panag also attended the Mahila Kisan Sansad to lend support.

The Kisan Andolan was started on 26 November 2020. On Monday, this movement completed eight months. Mahila Kisan Sansad has been organized at Jantar Mantar today only after the completion of 8 months. In which 200 women have participated. All women are playing the role of MP. The women participating in this women’s parliament have come from different parts of the country.

Gul Panag, who attended the Women’s Parliament, said that the first message from the Mahila Kisan Sansad is that of women’s empowerment that women should be given their rights. The government talks of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, but why is it not serious about giving them equal rights?

On the question of not being able to talk even after several rounds of talks with the government, Gul Panag said, “I have a lot of respect for the Prime Minister, because he calls himself a pradhan sevak. Can’t call him stubborn. But he should come among the farmers. Should, their demand should be accepted. When agricultural laws were being made, then farmers should have been consulted. Now the government should accept its mistake and withdraw these laws. When the country needed food grains, Punjab and Haryana The farmers of K.K. were asked to grow hybrid grains.Since then paddy is being grown here.

Women farmer Sudesh Goyat says that the participation of women in the farmers’ movement is also equal. The central government will have to withdraw these three laws. The Central Government has also changed the Essential Food Commodities Act, which is wrong. Farmers should get their due.
