After the mahapanchayat in Baraut in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat district, two more mahapanchayat’s are planned in UP’s Bijnor and Haryana’s Jind districts to mobilise support for the farmers’ agitation against the three contentious farm laws. 

While the Bijnor mahapanchayat has been scheduled for February 1, the one at Jind will be held on February 3, BKU spokesperson Dharmendra Malik said on Sunday.

Meanwhile, as numbers swell at Ghazipur, where BKU leader Rakesh Tikait is camping, women from as far as Shamli are bringing water for him, Malik said.

After the mahapanchayat in the Baghpat district on Sunday, which will also be attended by BKU leader Naresh Tikait (the brother of Rakesh Tikait), more farmers are expected to head towards Ghazipur.
