Sonepat, October 11

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) has announced to mark October 12 as “Shaheed Kisan Diwas” all over India. Besides, the antim ardas of the farmers killed in Lakhimpur Kheri will take place in Tikunia at Sahebjada Inter College.

The SKM has appealed to the farmers’ organisations across the country to mark the “Shaheed Kisan Diwas” by organising prayer meetings. In the evening, candlelight vigils will be held. The Morcha urged people to light five candles outside their homes at 8 pm tomorrow.

Meanwhile, farm leaders, in a joint statement, said it was shameful on part of the Union Government that the MoS Ajay Mishra Teni had not been sacked yet.

The SKM has already issued an ultimatum about October 11 being the deadline for the sacking and arrest of Ajay Mishra Teni. Tomorrow, at the prayer meetings in Lakhimpur Kheri, the Morcha will go ahead with its announced plan of action. — TNS
