BJP tractor rally shown black flags in Jhajjar

Jhajjar, October 10

The BJP on Saturday took out a ‘tractor rally’ from Dighal village here to Sampla town (Rohtak) in support of three new farm legislations.

The yatra, led by Member of Parliament (MP) Arvind Sharma, was inaugurated by BJP state president Om Prakash Dhankar in Dighal by driving a tractor.

Activists of the All-India Kisan sabha (AIKS) and other outfits under the aegis of the All-India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee showed black flags to the rally when it was passing through Dighal village. The protesters were standing on one side of the road while Sharma was driving the tractor at that time. They also shouted slogans against the BJP government.

“The protest was aimed at expressing our anger against the three legislations which will have long-term consequences for the farm sector and rural livelihood,” a protester said.

Subedar Satyanarayan, Preet Singh and Sumit Dalal of the AIKS, Dr Jagmati Sangwan of All-India Democratic Women’s Association, Pehalwan Om Singh and Jai Bhagwan of the BKU (Tikait) were among the protesters.

Earlier, Dhankar, while addressing party workers, said the Congress was misleading farmers by spreading lies about the three laws. The fact was that the laws would not only help the farmers doubling their income, but also provide them economic freedom, he said.

“The Congress is upset and frustrated by these laws. It is trying to sell lies but we will not let it do so. Hence, a tractor rally has been organised to make the farmers aware about these laws and to expose the Congress agenda,” Dhankar added.

Sharma said the laws would not affect the mandi and the MSP system in any way. The farmers would continue to get the MSP as usual, he added.
