Farmers have stepped on their fields after 20 years on the zero line of the India-Pakistan International Border. This is the same land, where whenever farmers reached to do farming earlier, bombs were hurled from Pakistan side.
Zero line farming after 20 years (symbolic photo)
You must have seen the pictures of the devastation caused by the firing on the India-Pakistan border till now, but the pictures we are going to show you today, no one has seen them for the last two decades. Due to the courage of our brave soldiers and people living close to the border, something is happening, for which two decades have passed. After all, what is happening on the border, watch NewsNCR correspondent Ankit Bhatt’s exclusive report from International Border
Some pictures that pierce the chest of the enemy across the border have come to the fore, in which the tractor is not only plowing the land but is also crushing the nefarious intentions of Pakistan because after 20 years the land where gunpowder used to rain will grow.
Farmers have stepped on their fields after 20 years on the zero line of the India-Pakistan International Border. This is the same land, where whenever farmers reached to do farming earlier, bombs were hurled from Pakistan side. Balls were dropped. Sometimes there was firing. There was always a fear of dying. But now the situation has changed and the team of NewsNCR reached Ground Zero to see and show you this changed situation on the border.
Tractors are running on the farm near the land border with Pakistan. Farming is happening and this has become possible because of our brave soldiers who have strengthened their hold on the border so much that now something is happening there which has not happened for two decades. In the Hiranagar sector on the International Border, zero line land is being cultivated in front of the tarbandi. Where in the last 20 years, it was beyond imagination even for the farmers here. But now it has become possible.
No ceasefire violation after February 25
In fact, Pakistan, frightened by India’s befitting reply, has not committed any ceasefire violation after February 25 this year. Due to which farming has started again on thousands of hectares of land trapped between the wireband and zero line on the IB i.e. International Border.
In Hiranagar sector, farmers are able to do farming without any fear, so our brave jawans are always ready here. After about two decades, stepping into our fields, farming will start again there. It is nothing less than a boon for these farmers.
On one hand, after two decades in Jammu and Kashmir, there was news of farmers stepping on the border land and beginning of farming, on the other hand another news related to farmers also came. This news has come from Punjab.
Farmers sitting on dharna on the issue of toll plaza
Farmers have opened a new front in Punjab. This time the issue is of toll tax. The demand of the farmers is that the increased toll tax should be withdrawn. These farmers had earlier gathered against the agricultural laws of the central government, but after the agricultural law was withdrawn, now they are sitting on a dharna on the issue of toll plazas.
At present, farmers’ strike is going on at about 25 toll plazas and some state toll plazas on the National Highway in Punjab. Farmers say that as soon as the agitation against agricultural laws ends, the toll plaza companies have increased the toll tax by Rs 5 to 15. An agitation is being organized against this and on December 20, rail roko agitation will be held. The farmers have made it clear that till the hike in toll tax is not withdrawn, their agitation will continue.
