The Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ekta-Ugrahan) today announced that over 30,000 farmers will join the protests at the Delhi borders on December 26 and 27.

While a contingent of 15,000 protesters will march from the Khanauri border on December 26, another 15,000 will start march from Dabwali on December 27. The march has been planned to mark one month of protests.

Claiming that sacrifices of farmers during the “kisan andolan” would not go waste, the union said these had made people more determined to take the struggle to its logical end.

State president of the organisation Joginder Singh Ugrahan and state secretary Shingara Singh Mann said in response to the call of Sanyukta Kisan Morcha, gatherings would be organised on December 20 in villages of Punjab to pay homage to the farmers who lost their lives during the protest. Memorial processions will be taken out on December 21, 22 and 23. After paying homage to the martyrs at the village-level, block-level tribute functions will be held on December 24.

A Delhi Chalo campaign committee has been formed under the leadership of Sukhdev Singh Kokri Kalan to strengthen the Delhi morcha, they said. This committee will organise activities to mobilise people to go to Delhi as well as to strengthen the ongoing morchas in Punjab.

Reacting to the remarks made by the Supreme Court on the agitation, the leaders said the farmers had exercised their right amid restrictions imposed by the Modi government. They said the right to struggle had been upheld by the Supreme Court.
