Women lead agitation over farmers’ demands

Women lead agitation over farmers’ demands


The Kisan Mazdoor Sanghrash Committee, KMSC, launched its 'Pakka Morcha' (permanent dharna) outside the District Administrative Complex (DAC). The 51-member jatha comprised 17 women members. The courage of the women was commendable as they remained away from their homes for days together. A number of other mass organisations have already been motivating women folk to take part in the agitations and to play active role in political activities. The women leaders also commanded the morcha independently for days. Recently, 10 women leaders sat on a hunger strike regarding their demands in Tarn Taran.

Parallel Kisan Sangharsh Committee formed

As the Kisan Sanghrash Committee (KSC), Punjab, became popular among the farmers, Kisan Sanghrash Committee, Punjab, led by Baljinder Singh Lohian, had come into existence recently. This organisation was formed after parting way from Kanwalpreet Singh Pannu, founder Convener of the KSC. The KSC, Punjab, was formed in 2000 in the area, which fought successful agitations. The organisation managed to establish its units in other districts too. But the internal differences came to the fore among the senior leaders of the organisation, resulting in formation of a parallel organisation under the same name of Kisan Sanghrash Committee, Punjab, under the leadership of Satnam Singh Pannu in 2007. The organisation led by Satnam Singh Pannu has converted its name as Kisan Mazdoor Sanghrash Committee, Punjab, three years back. Harjinder Singh Tanda, another leader of the organisation, formed Azad Kisan Sanghrash Committee, Punjab, few years back. There was another Kisan Sanghrash Committee, Punjab, led by Indertjit Singh Kot Budha, which was known as the KSC, Punjab (Kot Budha). The ongoing agitation launched by the Kisan Mazdoor Sanghrash Committee, Punjab, had been gaining much attention of the farmers now. Baljinder Singh Lohian of the newly formed KSC said a six-member state committee had been formed to launch its activities further.
