Haryana BKU president leads the convoy of farmers
Farmers have been protesting since November last year near the borders of Delhi. In the midst of the corona epidemic, farmers have refused to leave the movement, calling it a livelihood issue. Haryana Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) President Gurnam Singh Charuni led a convoy of farmers riding SUVs, cars and bikes at Bastar toll plaza of Karnal, where they gathered on Sunday morning. A farmer leader, on the condition of anonymity, said, ‘This new agitation of peasants will not only give strength to the protests, but will also send a message to those claiming that due to the decline in the number of farmers on the borders of Delhi, the agitation ends is likely to.’
Gurnam Singh Charuni, a member of the United Kisan Morcha, criticized the action of the Haryana Police on the farmers. He said, “The farmers were beaten up and the police filed an FIR against the farmers, but why did they not register a case against the policemen who attacked the women farmers and damaged our vehicles?”
Letter written to PM for United Front talks
Recently, the United Kisan Morcha (SKM) wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to resume negotiations on agricultural laws. Several rounds of talks have been held between the farmers and the government, but they have failed to break the deadlock on the three central laws. SKM consists of 40 farmers’ unions. A government committee met farmer leaders on 22 January. There has been no dialogue between the two sides since 26 January. On the day of Republic Day, the tractor rally of farmers in the national capital had turned violent.
Farmers said, cannot leave the movement
The SKM said that the protesting farmers do not want any epidemic to come. Together they cannot “give up the struggle, because it is a matter of life and death and also of the generations to come.” Any democratic government would repeal the three laws which have been rejected by the farmers, in whose name they are made and use the opportunity to give legal guarantee to the MSP to all the farmers. As the head of the world’s largest democracy government, it is up to you to resume a sincere and honest dialogue with the farmers.
