Tarn Taran, January 20

Jathas of thousands of farmers with hundreds of tractors left for Delhi to take part in the proposed 26th January national level ‘tractor march’ against the three controversial farm laws introduced by the Central Government.

The Acts are being condemned globally and the call for the march was extended support by the international-level organisations too. There was great enthusiasm among the farmers at the time of departure and the participants had decorated their tractor-trollies making all necessary arrangements to brave rain and cold. Farmers from more than 500 villages of the district have left for Delhi. The farmers from border areas as far as from Sarai Amanat Khan, Gandiwind, Chabal, Sursingh, Bhikhiwind, Khalra, etc gathered at Harike to leave for Delhi. Sukhwinder Singh Sabhra, Harpreet Singh Sidhwan, Satnam Singh Manochahal and other leaders of Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, Punjab, while addressing the occasion condemned the Union Government for not resolving the issue.

The farmers left with the ration and other required material. Ranjit Singh, a resident of Tarn Taran, donated Rs50,000 to the farmers for diesel at the time of departure.
