The Chhattisgarh Kisan Sabha (CGKS), affiliated with the All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS), is set to hold its 5th state conference starting tomorrow in Kalyanpur village, Surajpur district. The two-day conference aims to address agricultural issues and foster unity among farmers across the state.

Noteworthy leaders including Viju Krishnan, National General Secretary of AIKS, along with Avdhesh Kumar and Badal Saroj, National Joint Secretaries and Chhattisgarh Coordinators, will guide the conference. The event will witness the participation of 150 elected representatives from various parts of the state.

Sanjay Parate, the coordinator of CGKS, highlighted the importance of this gathering amidst deepening agricultural crises nationwide and the Modi government’s anti-farmer policies. The conference is seen as a crucial step towards uniting farmer organizations nationwide to combat detrimental policies and mobilize the farming community.

In addition to addressing the challenges faced by farmers in Chhattisgarh, discussions will focus on plans to connect every village and every farmer with the Kisan Sabha. Key decisions will be made regarding issues such as providing minimum support prices for crops, debt relief for farmers, effective implementation of land and forest rights laws, prevention of corporate land grabs and displacement, and ensuring 200 days of work and a daily wage of 600 rupees under MGNREGA for rural residents.

The conference will also witness the election of a new state committee and new office bearers. The call for action, echoing the slogan “Kisan Sabha in every village and every farmer in the Kisan Sabha,” underscores the organization’s commitment to grassroots mobilization and advocacy for farmers’ rights.

With the backdrop of the upcoming Kisan Mahapanchayat led by the Joint Farmers’ Front in Delhi on March 14, the issues faced by various sections of society, especially marginal and tribal farmers, will be highlighted, and plans for a resistance movement will be formulated.

The CGKS remains steadfast in its mission to champion the cause of farmers, striving to address their grievances and build a collective movement for agrarian justice and prosperity.
