Farm leaders review March 24 rally preparations

Local leaders of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha along with SSP Amneet Kondal and other police officials today took stock of preparations for the “Maha Kisan Mazdoor Ekta Rally” to be held at the new grain market, Sirhind Mandi, on March 24.

The rally is being organised by the Sarpanch Union, Punjab, in collaboration with Bharatiya Kisan Mazdoor Union. They discussed the security plan with police officials and farmer leaders coming from Delhi. The district administration has already granted permission for the rally.

BKU (Ugrahan) district president Prof Dharmjit Singh confirmed farm union leaders Balbir Singh Rajewal, Gurnam Singh Chaduni and Rakesh Tikait’s participation in the rally.

Sarpanch Union, Punjab, state president Gurmeet Singh Gunia Majra; and Kranti Kari Kissan Union, Bhal Majra district president, Harnek Singh said the consent of Ruldu Singh Mansa and Jagjit Singh Dalewal was awaited. He said besides farm union leaders, several artistes, including Babbu Mann, would also participate. They said farmers were holding meetings at village level to make the rally a success.

The farmer leaders said on the pretext of Covid threat the state government was trying to sabotage their rally, but the people would attend the rally en masse. They said if there was any Covid threat farmers protesting at Delhi would have been affected. They called upon all farm unions, traders, labour organisations, supporters and others to participate in large numbers, so that a strong message was conveyed to the central government against the three contentious farm laws.
