SKM Remembers Farmer 'Martyrs' On Diwali Artist Babu Maan was present at the SKM platform at Singhu border as the farmers’ body initiated the hashtag #DiwaliWithFarmers on Twitter.Pictures with candles in memories of the farmers who lost their lives during the course of the movement were posted to social media. The month-old Lakhimpur Kheri case made waves in farmer communities, and another recent incident of three women from Mansa, Punjab being run over by a truck highlighted the daily challenges they faced during the 14 months of their protest.
Samajwadi Party Lights Diyas For Farmers On Diwali Samajwadi Party chief had called for lighting diyas in support of farmers on Diwali, calling for the day to be celebrated as Kisan Smriti Divas. The party posted various pictures on social media showing cadres lighting diyas for farmers on Diwali. It also posted to Facebook that the corruption and rising costs during the present regime had dampened the celebratory mood of the Diwali festive season. It asked how the youth can celebrate Diwali when there were no jobs and no direction for their future. It brought up the 'bad policies' of the BJP regime, naming demonetization and GST and how it has afected traders and businesses, since Diwali is a festival which is closely associated with commerce. It said further in the post: "The BJP and its leadership is infamous for its anti-farmer behaviour. Even on the festival of lighting diyas (Diwali), farmers have to be away from their homes and families. There is darkness in their houses. Let alone buying at MSP, not even the procurement centres are open, and middlemen are therefore looting the produce of farmers at capricious prices. Farmers stand in long lines all day for fertiliser and still do not obtain it. Not only are DAP, Urea, and Potash fertilizers expensive but they are also unavailable. There are only two demands of the farmers: setting MSP as a law and repealing the three black farming laws. The BJP is completely apathetic to their demands"
