People's Parliament to bring to attention of Members of Parliament, media and the general public the impacts of the COVID pandemic on Indian agriculture and allied sectors.

On August 19, 2020, workers from All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS), Alliance for Sustainable and Holistic Agriculture (ASHA), Mahila Kisan Adhikar Manch (MAKAAM), Nation for Farmers, National Fishworkers Forum (NFF) and Focus on the Global South, brought together diverse voices on the failure of the present government to address the crisis in agriculture and allied sectors.

The panelists were: Hannan Mollah from the All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS), Prof R Ramakumar from the Tata Institute of Social Studies (TISS), Vijoo Krishnan (AIKS), Rani More, a farmer from Maharashtra, Jitendra Chaudhury, former MP from Tripura, T Peter from the National Fishworkers Forum (NFF), Kavitha Kuruganti from Alliance for Sustainable and Holistic Agriculture (ASHA), Dr. Neelam Gorhe of the Shiv Sena and Deputy Chairperson of the Maharashtra Legislative Council, Yogendra Yadav from Swaraj Abhiyan, and P Sainath of Nation for Farmers.

They brought forth pressing issues such as the failure of the government to address the impact of the COVID pandemic on Indian agriculture and allied sectors. Additionally, the drawbacks of Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2020 were highlighted. Testimonies from farmers emphasised the problem of "invisiblising women farmers" in agriculture policy and lack of access to credit, support infrastructure, and market linkages. They demanded an urgent special session of Parliament and state assemblies to exclusively discuss the agrarian crisis and related issues.
