In an effort to bring all farmers organisations on one platform for a united agitation on contentious issues, the sarv khap panchayat today formed a 12 member committee for coordination among farm groups.

Condemning the state government’s “repressive measures” against farm activists, khap panchayat leaders said such pressure tactics would not work. The also urged the Central government to accept farmers’ demands.

The meeting, presided over by Sarv Jatia Daaran khap in Jind district’s Palwa village, was attended by representatives of 55 khap panchayats and 25 farmers’ organisations from various parts of Haryana.

Prominent khap leaders including Sube Singh Samain from Samian khap, Pradeep Hooda from Hooda Khap, Sanjay Deswal from Deswal Khap, Satbir Singh from Satrol Khap, Kitab Singh Mor from Narwana khap, Omprakash from Nandal Khap, Ishwar Singh from Binain Khap, Captain Man Singh from Dalal Khap and Rajpal Kalkal from Kalkal Khap.

Azad Palwa of Daaran Khap said the khap leaders have taken an initiative to bring farmer organisations on one platform. He said the coordination committee has been tasked to meet a six-member committee of Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) and organisations that were outside of the SKM, but part of the ongoing farm agitation.

“This committee will work to bring together all those groups for an efficient agitation. We also adopted resolutions to condemn the brute force used by the police on protesters who want to proceed to the national capital, demand release the arrested farmers as soon as possible and cancel cases registered against the farmers,” Palwa said adding they also paid tributes to Shubhakaran Singh.

All the speakers unanimously stressed on the need for waging a fight unitedly on issues like law to ensure the MSP, loan waiver and other demands.

The khap meeting also criticised the government for issuing orders like cancelling passport of those participating in the agitation.
