Will take movement beyond Delhi: Sanyukt Kisan Morcha

New Delhi, March 7

Even as the harvesting season is around the corner, farmers have made it clear that they won’t be lifting their dharna from the Delhi border till their demands are met. Instead, the Sanyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), which is spearheading the protests, has decided to expand the movement to other parts of the country.

Jagmohan Singh Patiala of the BKU (Dakaunda) said the unions would announce the future course of action on March 11. “We are planning to expand the movement to other states, including the poll-bound ones. We will coordinate with opposition parties, but we have no political motive,” he said.

Yudhvir Singh, general secretary, BKU, said: “We will hold meetings in Bengal on March 12-14, Madhya Pradesh March 14-15, Odisha March 19 and Karnataka March 20-22,” he said. — TNS
