Farmer Unions To Observe ‘Black Day’, Top Opposition Parties Extend Support


Farmer unions will be observing ‘black day’ on May 26 to mark the completion of six months of their stir against the Centre’s three controversial farm laws.

Samkyukt Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of protesting unions, had announced that farmers will observe May 26 as ‘Black Day’ to mark the completion of six months.

According to a statement released by the Samkyukt Kissan Morch, it stated that this farmer’s movement is running on truth and non-violence and will be completing six months of its historical struggle on May 26.

The statement stated that – “SKM requests all Indians to celebrate and mark Buddha Poornima tomorrow, so that truth and non-violence find a strong place back in our community, at a time when attempts are being made to erode these basic values in our society,”

On behalf of the SKM, a farmer leader Kulwant Singh appealed to all citizens to mark the ‘black day’ by hoisting black flags from their homes, vehicles and other places.

Union leaders said that farmers should wear black turbans and black chunni on this day. Kulwant Singh said that they will fix black flags at every border.
