The railways deploy 20 additional companies of the Railway Protection Special Force (RPSF) across the country, with a focus on Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal, in the wake of the “rail roko” stir called on Thursday by farmer groups protesting against the Centre’s new agri laws.

Director-General of Railway Protection Force Arun Kumar said, “I appeal to everyone to maintain peace. We will be liaisoning with district administrations and will have a control room in the place.”

The All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) as a part of the national strategy for supporting farmer’s agitation in New Delhi, will participate in a Rail Roko protest at Dahanu near Mumbai, Parbhani, and a few other districts in the state on Thursday, said President of AIKS and Central Committee Member of CPI(M), Ashok Dhawale.

The blockade will be the third major demonstration by the farmers as part of their agitation. Besides the January 26 tractor march, they held a nationwide ‘Chakka Jam’ on February 6.

In Punjab, the ruling Congress, which has wholeheartedly backed the agitation, registered a comprehensive win in state-local body elections, while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is in power at the Centre, was wiped out.
