The Covid-19 pandemic in our country has assumed unprecedented dimensions of a human catastrophe.

Support December 8 Bharat Bandh

LEADERS of political parties – Congress, DMK, NCP, RJD, PAGD, SP, CPI(M), CPI, CPI(ML), AIFB, and RSP – in a statement issued on December 6, have extended their solidarity with the ongoing massive struggle by the Indian farmers organised by various kisan organisations from across the country and supported their call for a Bharat bandh on December 8 demanding the withdrawal of the retrograde agri-laws and the Electricity Amendment Bill.

Complete Solidarity with the Ongoing Kisan Struggle

The 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 on November 30.
THE Left parties extend their complete support to and solidarity with the huge protests by the farmers of the country. Lakhs have converged around Delhi demanding the withdrawal of the agri laws, passed in the parliament in a brazen anti-democratic manner, and the Electricity (Amendment) Bill.

AIKS Condemns Police Action on Farmers

THE All India Kisan Sabha condemns the unprecedented use of brute force by the police at the behest of the Narendra Modi led BJP government on peasants and workers protesting against the anti-farmer, anti-worker Acts. AIKS demands the unconditional release of all the arrested protesters and for the restoration of right to protest. It is also significant that the arrests in Delhi have happened when the protest had been permitted by the authorities. This attack on democratic rights ironically is taking place on the Constitution Day.


THE Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) congratulates the hundreds of millions of workers and peasants across the country for rising as one to protest against the atrocious attacks of the Modi led BJP government, on their, rights, lives and livelihoods and against the anti-worker, anti-people and anti-national policies. In a statement issued on November 26, it said that over 25 crore workers, agricultural workers and other sections of toiling people who produce the wealth of the country, struck work.
