A kisan mahasammelan at Chatha Nanhera village in the district got a good response as residents from various sections of society attended the event.
They vowed to intensify their agitation in the coming days to force the central government repeal the farm laws. President of BKU Sidhupur and leader of Samyukt Kisan Morcha Jagjeet Singh Dallewal underlined the reasons of their protest against the laws and their future plans.
“Farmers are the backbone of the Indian economy but the government wants to destroy farming by implementing new laws to favour big corporates. When we do not need any such laws, why is the government imposing these on us? Apart from seniors, all youngsters must also reach Delhi to support the agitation,” said Dallewal.“The central government should not test our patience and must fulfil the demand for MSP and repeal of laws. We will thank the government and come back as we do not have any political agenda. But if any political party tries to rob the farmers by implementing the laws, we will protest,” Abhimanyu Kohad, a farmer leader from Haryana, said. The members of the organising committee said the purpose of their event was to mobilise maximum support for the Delhi protest. Apart from singers and students, many international kabbadi players also attended the event.
