To the President of India, we write to you regarding the mounting agrarian crisis in the country

As the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC), representing almost 200 farming organisations and millions of our country’s farmers, workers and agricultural labourers is fighting to save their livelihoods and has organised a Kisan Mukti March to Delhi for 2 days from 29th to 30th of November, we urge you to pay heed to their demand for a special, 21 day joint session of Parliament, dedicated entirely to discussing the agrarian crisis and related issues.
