Samyukta Kisan Morcha to stage nationwide protest

On March 21, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) will stir a nationwide protest against the Centre for failing to keep its promises, including the setting up of a panel on MSP and the withdrawal of lawsuits against farmers, said its functionaries on Monday.

SKM leaders will also give a memorandum to the Punjab Governor on March 25 regarding the Central government’s change in rules for the appointment of top officers to the Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMB).

The decision came after a day-long meeting held in New Delhi at the Gandhi Peace Foundation at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg.

In response to the Centre’s promises, senior SKM leader Harinder Singh Lakhowal said that it was unanimously decided that between April 11 to 17, a nationwide campaign would be launched by observing MSP Legal Guarantee Week. During this week, all the constituent organizations of the SKM will hold demonstrations and seminars, demanding a legal guarantee of MSP as recommended by the Swaminathan Commission.

Speaking on the matter, Lakhowal stated that the Centre has made no progress in delivering its commitments to farmers, including the formation of a panel on MSP to make legislation on it, the withdrawal of lawsuits against farmers, and the expulsion of Union minister Ajay Mishra Teni from the cabinet.

The SKM, which represents 40 farm unions, led a year-long protest against the Centre’s three farm laws. SKM stated that the protest on March 21 will be related to the role of the government in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident and the betrayal of promises given to the farmers’ movement.

The agitation was put on hold on December 9 last year after the government revoked the controversial laws and agreed to consider its six other demands, which included the withdrawal of cases filed against farmers during the agitation, a legal guarantee on MSP, and compensation for the kin of farmers killed during the protest.

The SKM claims that the Central government has not formed a panel on MSP, nor has it withdrawn lawsuits against farmers and union officials, despite the fact that it has been three months.

No CNG sale in Delhi today, Dealers Association calls for protest; here’s why

CNG sale in Delhi

The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) has announced that there will be no CNG sale in Delhi on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm. The reason for the closure of CNG pumps is the non-reimbursement of the electricity bills by Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL).

Delhi Association called for the protest as the reimbursement of the electricity bill of CNG pumps is not being done by IGL and is long overdue which has been causing them huge losses every day. The protest will affect about 250 CNG pumps in the capital.

In a letter last month, DPDA President Anurag Jain wrote, We have decided to go for no CNG sale on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm as a mark of protest. He further said the DPDA is forced to take this step due to the reluctance shown by IGL to pay the actual electricity reimbursement of CNG facilities to the dealers of Delhi who are incurring huge financial losses every month.

In Delhi, the electricity bill of the petrol pumps is paid by IGL, and CNG consumes a lot of electricity. DPDA says that IGL has not been paying the electricity bill for a long time, due to which they are suffering huge losses. And this is the reason the association has announced it will close CNG pumps today.

DPDA said there was a meeting organized with IGL in March 2022 to solve the issue, and IGL even agreed on the reimbursement of the electricity bill. After this meeting, the dealers were assured that the issue would be resolved in a month. DPDA said the issue has not been resolved yet and IGL didn’t fulfill its promise.

The non-fulfillment of DPDA’s demands has led them to take the step of closure of CNG pumps in Delhi on August 10. CNG is currently being sold at Rs 75.61 per kg in Delhi.
