Twelve Opposition leaders have come out in support of the farmers' protest. The leaders backed the Samyukuta Kisan Morcha's call for a nationwide protest on May 26. The SKM is a union of 40 farmers' outfits and had issued a call for 'black day' to mark six months of the ongoing agitation against the Centre's three farm laws. The joint statement signed by Congress acting president Sonia Gandhi, former prime minister HD Deve Gowda, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee (TMC), Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray (Shiv Sena), Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin (DMK) and Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren (JMM).
