Labour rights activists Nodeep Kaur while speaking to students at Punjabi University in Patiala said various organisations will come together and hold a conference in Delhi.
She said she had come to the University campus to remember and discuss the ideas of freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev and their associates, to apply them in relation to protests against the Centre government farm laws in the country. The event was organised by Democratic Students’ Organisation (DSO) to commemorate the martyrdom of Bhagat Singh and his associates.
Accompanied by activist Shiv Kumar, she said people associated with various organisations need to come together to fight a ‘fascist’ government.
She added, “Our politics is for the rights of women, children and all other members of the society.”
She said they want to bring people of various organisations together. “Students associated with various student political wings should come together. We need to learn from the ideas of Bhagat singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. Our education should not remain confined to our classrooms but we should use it for the betterment of the society.”
She said all fronts protesting against the Centre’s farm bills will together hold a conference in Delhi. “A conference will be organised at all-India-level against the farm bills. We are going and meeting people of different organisations to bring them together on one platform.” She said the conference is set to be held on March 30. “We are also meeting trade unions and are in touch with farmers’ associations and other organisations,” she added.
