Punjab Farmer’ Unions form ‘Sanyukt Samaj Morcha’, announce to fight 2022 elections with Rajewal as CM face

Chandigarh, Dec 25, 2021- Twenty-two unions of farmers, which were part of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) to protest three contentious farm laws, on Saturday announced to form a political front ‘Samyukta Samaj Morcha’ to contest the 2022 assembly elections in Punjab on all 117 seats.

Chief Minister’s face Balbir Singh Rajewal, however, clarified there was no alliance as of now with any political party, not even with AAP.

But at the same time he didn’t rule out any future possibility.

Rajewal told the media here that they were doing it on public demand. “Some of the unions are against it but won’t oppose,” he said.

Ten other unions belonging to the state and were part of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha have refused to be part of the political front.

They comprised the Krantikari Kisan Union (Darshan Pal), the BKU Krantikari (Surjit Phool) and the BKU Sidhupur (Jagjit Dallewal).

Responding to the announcement of the political front, farmer leader Darshan Pal said, “Most of the demands of the farmers like the MSP (minimum support price) are yet to be accepted. By launching the political front, the movement of farmers might be weakened.”

He said the SKM was formed for bigger purpose and he has suggested that the farm leaders should not do injustice to farmers by entering politics.

“Every union has the right to make its own decisions. We have earned the trust of farmers across the country and will not enter politics,” Pal added.

Earlier this month, BKU (Haryana) President Gurnam Singh Chaduni announced his political outfit Samyukta Sangharsh Party, saying the party will fight the upcoming Punjab elections. (Agency)
