Tarn Taran, January 11

Hundreds of farmers of the border areas conducted the rehearsal of the tractor march for the proposed tractor parade on January 26 in the border area villages here.

Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, Punjab, led the march, which started from Jhabal village and passed through Meerpur, Majjupur, Panjwar, Bhojian, Kot Dharam Chand Kalan, Bhagel Singh Wala and concluded at Gurdwara Bir Baba Budha Sahib Thatha.

Baljit Singh, a leader of the committee, said the convoy of the farmers to take part in the proposed 26 January tractor parade would depart from the area on January 20. He said more than 4,000 tractor- trailers were expected to move to Delhi. The enthusiasm of farmers to participate in the Delhi march has become a major concern for the intelligence agencies of both the Union and the state governments. The farmers’ leaders have demanded for the immediate revoking of farm laws. — OC
