Watch | Protesting Farmers Campaign in Bengal, Urge People to 'Defeat BJP'

Leaders under the umbrella organisation Samyukt Kisan Morcha, which is spearheading the protest at Delhi’s borders against the Centre’s farm laws, came to Bengal to campaign against the BJP.

In an unprecedented move, several farm leaders protesting at the Delhi border for over 100 days reached the poll-bound state of West Bengal on Thursday for a three-day visit to campaign against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

One overarching message given by the leaders under the umbrella organisation Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), which is spearheading the protest at Delhi’s borders against the Centre’s farm laws, was “Defeat BJP. Don’t vote for the BJP.”

In three days the farm leaders addressed five mahapanchayats in Bengal – two in Kolkata and one each in Nandigram, Singur and Asansol.
