AGARTALA, March 6 (TIWN): The state committee of the All-India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) has decided to observe March 6, the 100th day of the protest, as a “black day”. In Tripura also Kishan Sabha organized programme in support of Farmers' protest's 100 days completion.

The AIKS demands that the three new farm laws should immediately be repealed. 

Farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at several border points of Delhi, including Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur, since November 28 last year, demanding a repeal of the three new farm laws and a legal guarantee on the minimum support price (MSP) for their crops.

The AIKS will mobilise women of all sections of society on the International Women’s Day (March 8) to join farmers protesting at the Delhi borders and toll plazas.

The government has denied allegations that it is trying to put an end to the MSP and the "mandi" (wholesale market) systems through the new laws. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also assured the farmers that the MSP system would continue.

Farmer leaders have made it clear that they would not settle for anything less than a repeal of the new agriculture laws.
