NewsFarmers continue to demonstrate: “Rail Roko” on March 10

Date:

On March 6, the “Delhi Chalo” march will recommence, and on March 10, there will be a national “Rail Roko.” Leading farmers Sarwan Singh Pandher and Jagjit Singh Dallewal declared on Sunday that they will perform Rail Roko nationwide on 10 March, 12p.m. to 4 p.m.

 According to the farm leaders, the demonstrating farmers, who are camped at the Punjab-Haryana border, will start a “peaceful” march towards Delhi on March 6.

According to Punjab’s Balloh village, the hometown of a farmer who was killed in recent clashes, Pandher, and Dallewal declared that the farmers would step up their protests at the current locations until the Center complies with their demands. Farmers from remote states who are unable to travel to Delhi on tractor trolleys should take trains or other forms of transportation. It will also be evident whether the government permits farmers who do not use tractor trolleys to enter the market. The agitation at Shambhu and Khanauri will persist as it has in the past and only get worse. We’ll keep up the agitation until the demands are fulfilled, Pandher declared. 

He continued by saying that the farmers’ demands should be supported by a resolution passed by every panchayat in Punjab and that the government is employing all available means to put an end to their “Delhi Chalo” march. The Center is attempting to create the impression that the two main forums are leading the fight and that the present agitation is restricted to Punjab. However, we want to be clear that the two forums include over 200 outfits nationwide. It is untrue to create the impression that when the model code of conduct for the polls is implemented, the agitation will stop. The media quoted the farm leader as saying, “We may have to fight tomorrow and today, but we are going to keep fighting for our rights.”

Over 200 farmers’ unions as well, including the Samyukta Kisan Morcha and the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha, started the Delhi Chalo march on February 13 in an effort to pressure the Center to grant a number of demands. The farm bodies have agreed to stop their agitation against the now-repealed farm laws in 2021, but now they are calling for a law guaranteeing a minimum support price (MSP). They also want the waiver of farm debt, pension funds for farmers and farm laborers, and the implementation of the recommendations made by the Swaminathan Commission.

 After their agitation was put down by the security forces, the farmers who were protesting remained at the border crossings between Punjab and Haryana at Shambhu and Khanauri.
