The dharna being given outside the Jandiala Guru railway station by the Kisan-Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti in protest against the agrarian reform laws entered the 84th day. Farmers are firm about their demand even during the fog and winter season.
Addressing the protest, farmer leaders Gurbachan Singh Chabba and Lakhvidar Singh Variyam said that the withdrawal of the law despite the demand of farmers by the central government proves that the government wants to benefit the corporate houses. The evasive behavior of the central government to quash farming laws is completely anti-farmer.
The Central Government passed the APMC Act in Parliament in 1977, according to which farmers can sell grain anywhere outside the government mandis, but to date, farmers have not benefited. The next batch of farmers for the Delhi March will leave on 25 December. For this, the organization has stepped up campaigning in villages.
Farmer leaders Bikram Singh, Gurpal Singh, Balwant Singh Kotla, Sukhdev Singh Saidpura, Kuljit Singh Kale, Kulwant Singh Khohali, Kabil Singh, etc. were present during this period. At the same time, the demonstration was continued at the toll plaza Manawala by the Azad Kisan Sangharsh Committee. Similarly, workers of the Bharatiya Kisan Union staged a sit-in at the Kathunangal toll plaza.
There was a sit-in on behalf of the Public Welfare Welfare Society. A sit-in was staged outside the house of Rajya Sabha member White Malik by a joint coalition of thirty farmer organizations. Kisan Sabha activists demonstrated on Majitha Road. Workers of the Bharatiya Kisan Union shouted slogans against the central government by protesting at the Ajnala road.
