Congress party has decided to observe ‘Kisan Vijay Diwas’ across the country on Saturday to recognition of the farmers’ struggle against the repeal of the three Central farm laws.

In an official statement, the party welcomed the decision of the BJP-led central government said termed it is as a “victory of the farmers.” “The victory is dedicated to all the Annadatas of our country, in recognition of their consistent and spirited fight against the flawed decisions of the tyrannical government and will be observed by the Indian National Congress as ‘Kisan Vijay Diwas’, on November 20, 2021,” read the statement.

This comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier in the day announced repealing of the three agricultural laws that were passed last year and had prompted nationwide protests.

The party also said that workers and leaders will be visiting families of farmers who lost their lives in their areas and pay homage to them.

Alleging that over 700 farmers have lost their lives, Congress said that it will also hold candle marches to pray for the departed souls.

Farmers had been protesting at different sites since November 26 last year against the three enacted farm laws: Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.

Farmer leaders and the Centre held several rounds of talks in the past but the impasse remained, until today it was decided to repeal the farm laws with constitutional measures, which the PM said will begin in the Winter session of Parliament which is likely to commence from November 29.
