1,000 tractors from Kandela khap villages

Hisar, January 22

About 1,000 tractors from villages under the Kandela khap will be pressed into service for the farmers’ march on the Republic Day.

Khap pradhan Tekram Kandela made this announcement after a meeting among khap representatives in Jind district today.

The Kandela khap, which had spearheaded farmers’ agitation against the Om Prakash Chautala government two decades ago, has been supporting peasants in their fight against the Centre’s three new farm laws.

Kandela said, “Farmers will gather at the Khatkar toll plaza, which is the nerve centre of farmers’ protest in Jind, on Sunday. From there, they will set out for Delhi on on their tractors.”

He further said farmers would carry eatables and other essential items with them in tractor-trailers.

The Kandela khap has adopted three resolutions — repeal of the three laws, implementation of the Swaminathan Commission recommendations and waiver of farm loans.

Azad Singh Palwa, Jind BKU president, claimed about 5,000 tractors from Jind would leave for Delhi on Sunday. “Women will lead the cavalcade,” he said. — TNS
