On completion of 6 months of the valiant Peasants’ Movement,
Observe May 26 as a Black Day successfully – AIDSO
Supporting the decision of the farmers to observe Black Day on 26 May 2021, Sourav Ghosh, the General Secretary, AIDSO has issued the following statement to the press today:
All India Democratic Students’ Organisation (AIDSO) has been maintaining a strong and unwavering stand with the struggling peasants right from day one. We all know, that the farmers of our nation have been protesting on the borders of Delhi for the past 6 months.
Today, when we are going through a phase of what seems to be an indefinite pandemic that is devouring the lives of so many people, even then, the Central Government is unwilling to conform to the valid and logical demands of the agitating farmers. This pandemic time has revealed that the government is not only insensitive towards the farmers but also the people of the country.
We, the students, come from the families of farmers and workers, and hence, when we see the farmers of our country leaving their field to be on the roads of the Capital, fighting for their rights, how can we afford to sit with our lips sealed shut?
Samyukt Kisan Morcha has given a call to observe May 26 as a black day to mark the completion of six years of misrule of the Modi government and 6 months of the farmers’ movement. Students’ organisation AIDSO wholeheartedly supports this decision of the farmers and calls upon the entire students’ community to observe 26 May 2021 as a black day.
