Maharashtra Farmers on the March

by , 06 Mar 2018

The long march of the Maharashtra unit of the All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) began from the CBS Chowk at Nashik today March 6 at 4.30 pm with tens of thousands of farmers from all over the state. Its distinguishing feature is that thousands of peasant women are also part of the March and they will walk all the way of 200 Km to Mumbai. The entire area is replete with hundreds of red flags, red banners and red placards giving the demands of the March. Resounding slogans are being given condemning the BJP state government's callous betrayal of its own assurances given to the peasantry on the issues of farm loan waiver, remunerative prices, implementation of Forest Rights Act (FRA) and many others during the last two years.



The Long March is being led by AIKS leaders Dr Ashok Dhawale, Vijoo Krishnan, J P Gavit, MLA, Kisan Gujar, Dr Ajit Nawale and other state office bearers. The Long March was flagged off by the above AIKS leaders, along with senior PWP leader and ex-MLA Meenakshi Patil, CITU state president Dr D L Karad, AITUC leader Raju Desle and others.

Tonight the March will stop near the Valdevi river and tomorrow will proceed towards Igatpuri in Nashik district.
