Scores of farmers from Uttarakhand and western Uttar Pradesh reached at Ghazipur border and joined other farmers protesting there for over 75 days against the Centre’s farms laws.
The farmers leaders at Ghazipur, one of the protest sites, said that the farmers from the Terai region of Uttarakhand will also take part in the ongoing agitation on the Ghazipur border and they will also pay tribute to Navrita who was killed during the tractor parade on 26 January.
Jagatar Singh Bajwa, a member of the Ghazipur Movement Committee, said that about 10 thousand people are expected to reach the venue of the agitation.
The process of reaching the farmers sitting on dharna carrying food items, water and other items is going on. BKU spokesperson Rakesh Tikait said that he would take legal action against the channels running the baseless news.
Tikait thanked the people who were taking the logistics to the movement site and bowed over the water. On Thursday, member of Ghazipur Kisan Andolan Committee, Tejinder Singh Birk appealed to farmers to join the protest and also asked people to inform them about the upcoming programs being organised by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha.
Meanwhile, khap panchayats have also joined the protest and they are providing the langar service at the protest site. While the langar service (Bhandara) has been started on behalf of Desh Khap at the movement site, on Thursday, a truck from Dhangad Khap reached the movement site with food items.
