Karnal, May 9

To strengthen the agitation at Delhi borders, the BKU (Charuni) has said farmers from four different districts will hold the ‘morcha’ on weekly basis.

The decision was taken at a major state-level meeting chaired by BKU chief Gurnam Singh Charuni at Singhu border in Sonepat.

“We have assigned the duty for this to district and block presidents accordingly. It will help us strengthen the agitation,” said Charuni.

Farmers also accused the Union and state governments for ‘failing’ to make appropriate arrangements amid the Covid wave. They also burnt an effigy of the PM.

“The government has failed in controlling the pandemic situation. People are dying due to non-availability of oxygen gas, beds and also medicines,” said Charuni.

The BKU also asked the government to provide free treatment to all patients.

He said they would continue their agitation till the fulfilment of their demands, including repealing of the three farm laws. — TNS
