Rudrapur: The farmers protesting at the Ghazipur border of Delhi have decided to intensify their movement against the three contentious agricultural laws.
Tejender Singh Virk, president of the Terai Kisan Mahasabha, said, that on February 14, the second anniversary of the terror attack in Pulwama, farmers from all across the country would take out a candle march to commemorate the Pulwama martyrs and martyrs of the farmers’ movement. “On February 16, the birth anniversary of the farmer leader Chhoturam will be observed. There will be a four-hour nationwide rail blockade on February 18 from 12 noon to 4 pm,” Virk said. He said that all the protests will be held peacefully.
Notably, the Kisan Andolan Committee of Ghazipur has prepared a roadmap for the nationwide protests to be held in the coming week, said Jagtar Singh Bajwa, spokesperson of the committee. The committee has also decided to safeguard the interests of farmers and have formed a panel of advocates to help those agitating farmers who have been booked by the Delhi police in different cases.
Speaking to TOI from Ghazipur border, Bajwa said that the police forces of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh are trying to intimidate farmers by issuing notices. “The Ghazipur Kisan Ekta Morcha has empanelled several renowned advocates to help the farmers who have been booked by the police. The same panel of advocates will also look after the bail proceedings of the jailed farmers,” said Bajwa. He added that any farmer — who is issued a notice for participating in the protest — should inform the Morcha promptly. Bajwa further said that the farmers from across the country will participate in the renewed strategy to the agitation.
“It has been decided by all the constituting organisations of the Sanyunkta Kisan Morcha that from18 February, all the toll booths of Uttarakhand will be shut indefinitely till the agitation continues at the Ghazipur border. The farmer organisations at their respective functioning areas will make sure that the booths do not charge toll fees from the vehicles,” Virk added.
