The Left parties – Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist), Revolutionary Socialist Party and All India Forward Bloc – have issued the following statement:
Bharat Bandh: Unprecedented People’s Support
The historic Bharat Bandh called by the united platform of kisan organisations has received an unprecedented response all over India in the face of the refusal of the Central Government to withdraw the anti-India, anti-farmer Agri-Laws. The spontaneous response it received shows the extent of people’s support to the struggle of the kisans of India.
The Left parties congratulate the kisans for their determined struggle and sacrifice and the people of India for their massive support in solidarity today.
The Left parties call upon the Central Government to accept the legitimate demands made by this kisan struggle.
