Farmers’ organizations are planning to march to Delhi on 26-27 November to protest against the new agricultural laws.
These organizations say that if they are stopped then all the routes coming to Delhi from neighboring states will be closed.
They say that farmers across the country will march to Delhi. Wherever they will be stopped on the way, they will sit on the dharna.
The Delhi government, on the other hand, has not allowed farmers’ organizations to rally.
What is the issue related to agricultural laws?
In fact, the Modi government has brought three laws to improve the agricultural sector, including making provisions for procurement outside government mandis, approving contract farming and ending the stock limits of many grains and pulses.
Farmers of many states including Punjab and Haryana are strongly opposing these laws. He says that through these the government wants to get rid of mandis and the minimum support price (MSP).
“If the march is stopped then the farmers of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana will stop the way of Delhi”
Giving information about the farmers’ march, Bharatiya Kisan Union (Rajewal) chief Balbir Singh Rajewal said that if the march is stopped then the farmers of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh will close the routes of Delhi passing through their respective states.
From food to sleeping, farmers will make all arrangements
He added, “Wherever we will be stopped, we will sit on the dharna there. We will take rations, tents, mattresses and blankets with us. We have a habit of sleeping on the streets and we will keep sleeping on the streets. Not only Punjab but Farmers across the country will sleep on the streets when they are stopped from marching to Delhi. Now it depends on the central government what they decide. “
The farmer said – the question of our existence
Explain that the Delhi government has not allowed farmers to rally in Jantar-Mantar or Ramlila Maidan. Farmers organizations, on the other hand, are adamant about marching to Delhi.
