*AIKCC statement on the arrest of Dr. Sunilam one day before the #KisanMuktiYatra starts*
Just a day before the Kisan Mukti Yatra was scheduled to kick off from Mandsaur, the MP police has arrested farmer leader Dr. Sunilam from Pipaliya Mandi. The arrest is a reflection of BJP government’s desperation to muzzle the voice of farmers at any cost. It is the insensitivity of BJP towards farmers that has led the MP police to act in such an autocratic manner.
After miserably failing to address the concerns of country’s farmers, the MP government had earlier too used force and bullets killing 6 farmers.
Now that the police killing has not detered the farmers from voicing their genuine demands, it has now begun brazenly resorting to undemocratic means.
Dr. Sunilam, the main organiser of the MP leg of Kisan Mukti Yatra. He was arrsted hours before the yatra was scheduled to begin tomorrow from Madhya Pradesh.
The convenor of All India Kisan Coordination Committee, V M Singh has condemned the undemocratic arrest one day prior to the Yatra calling it a reflection of police state in MP.
Reiterating his resolve to fight for the rights of farmers, Yogendra Yadav said that the government’s desperation is a proof that they have been caught on the wrong foot because of the call of #OneNationOneMovement given by country’s farmers. He tweeted to inform about the arrest, “Just heard that our colleague and main organiser of tomorrow’s programme Dr Sunilam, ex MLA, has been arrested in Pipaliya Mandi.”
