Chandigarh, November 30

At least 130 khap panchayats (community courts) of Haryana on Monday announced that they would join the ongoing farmer agitation on Delhi borders from Tuesday.

“All khap men are first farmers and then leaders,” khap spokesperson Jagbir Malik told the media.

“They are associated with the farmer agitation from day one. As Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said the farmers of the state were not associated with the agitation, it is a wrong statement. The farmers of Haryana have been associated with this agitation,” he said.

No social distancing at protest, farmer leaders says new laws bigger threat than coronavirus

The farmers of Haryana have also been appealing to the Central Government to listen to the farmers.

Malik said all khaps of Haryana have unanimously decided to support protesting farmers by all means.

The importance of the khaps, especially in the politically dominant Jat community, is such that even Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at a rally in Jind, had to seek their blessings for the BJP for the 2014 assembly elections. IANS
