Manish Kumar, New Delhi: Today is the 24th day of the farmers’ agitation against the new agricultural laws amid falling mercury and the threat of the coronavirus pandemic.
But till now there has been no solution to this issue. There is a constant deadlock between the farmers and the government.
A large number of farmers have been blocking the Delhi borders since November 26, demanding the repeal of the new agricultural laws. The farmers have blocked many border points linking Delhi to Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, including Singhu, Tikri, Palwal and Ghazipur.
A large number of farmers have been protesting at different borders of Delhi for more than three weeks against the new agricultural laws.
Meanwhile, the peasant leaders have started a strategy to intensify their agitation to increase the pressure on the government. On the completion of one month of the protests against the agricultural laws, the farmers announced that they will intensify the blockade of Delhi on December 26-27.
The farmer leaders claim that 30,000 farmers will leave for Delhi during these two days. Fifteen thousand farmers will travel to Delhi from the Khanauri border on December 26 and Dabwali border on December 27. This announcement has been made by United Kisan Morcha.
The Delhi Chalo Abhiyan Samiti has also been formed to make the march to Delhi a success. Sukhdev Singh (Kokari Kalan), the National General Secretary of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan), said that this decision has been taken after the farmers traveled to Delhi to protest against the the Centre’s agricultural laws.
