KISAN SANSAD – DAY 2 || 24 JANUARY
Livestream of Kisan Sansad from Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial
SPECIAL KISAN SESSION – 19th to 21st December, 2020As we all are well aware, lakhs of farmers have been protesting against the recently passed farm laws and one of their demands has been that a special session of Parliament be convened to repeal these laws. Ironically, the government has decided to do away with the Winter Session of Parliament this year.
In this context, Jan Sarokar, a diverse group of civil society organisations, social movements, and mass organisations from across India, is organising a Special Kisan Session of the Janta Parliament, in solidarity with the ongoing farmers’ protests against the three Farm Laws. The idea behind this three day virtual session on 19-21 December, 2020 is to not only hear representatives of the farmers’ movement and discuss the impacts of the Farm Laws on various sections of citizens but also to go beyond and open the discussion around an alternative policy agenda.
