SKM confronts govt with list of ‘537 tillers who died since Nov’ | India News

NEW DELHI: A day after agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar told Lok Sabha that the government didn’t have any record of loss of lives of agitating farmers who died during the ongoing protest movement, Samyukta Kisan Morcha released a list, claiming that more than 537 farmers died since November 2020.
The list includes details of 33 farmers who allegedly committed suicide during the protests. Citing media reports and other records, an open blog carried details of residential addresses of the deceased and causes of their death at different protest sites over last seven months. Terming Tomar’s statement as “shameful and regrettable”, the farmer unions, protesting for repeal of three central farm laws, said, “SKM would like to remind Tomar and his colleagues that in December 2020, the entire official delegation stood up in silence to pay respects to martyrs of the movement.
