‘Farmers’ stir will be intensified’

Must read

Farmer leaders Sarwan Singh Pandher and Jagjit Singh Dallewal on Sunday gave a call to the farmers across the nation to reach Delhi on March 6 for a protest while they also gave a four-hour ‘rail roko’ countrywide call for March 10 in support of their various demands.
The two farmer leaders asserted that the farmers’ ongoing agitation will be intensified at the existing protest points and will continue till their demands are met by the government.
They were speaking in Bathinda district’s Balloh village, the native village of a farmer who died recently during clashes with the Haryana security personnel in Khanauri.
Kisan Mazdoor Morcha (KMM) are spearheading the ‘Delhi Chalo’ march by the farmers to press the government to accept their demands, which includes that the Centre should give a legal guarantee of the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for the crops.
Both forums decided that while the farmers from Punjab and Haryana will continue to support the ongoing agitation at Shambhu and Khanauri border points, the farmers and farm labourers from other states should reach Delhi on March 6 for a protest in the national capital in support of the farmers’ demands.
“The farmers from far away states, who cannot reach on tractor trolleys, should head to Delhi by trains and by other means of transport. It will also become clear whether the government allows those farmers to enter those farmers who go without tractor trolleys,” Pandher said addressing the gathering at Balloh.
“At Shambhu and Khanauri, the agitation will continue like before and will be further intensified. Our agitation will continue till the demands are met,” he added.
