Chandigarh, March 3

Farmer leaders Sarwan Singh Pandher and Jagjit Singh Dallewal on Sunday gave a call to the farmers across the nation to reach Delhi on March 6 for a protest while they also gave a four-hour ‘rail roko’ countrywide call for March 10 in support of their demands.

The two farmer leaders asserted that the farmers' ongoing agitation would be intensified at the existing protest points and would continue till their demands are met.

They were speaking in Bathinda district's Balloh village, the native village of a farmer who died recently during clashes with the Haryana security personnel in Khanauri.

The Kisan Mazdoor Morcha (KMM) is spearheading the 'Delhi Chalo' march by the farmers to press the government to accept their demands, which includes that the Centre should give a legal guarantee of the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for the crops.

Both forums decided that while the farmers from Punjab and Haryana will continue to support the ongoing agitation at Shambhu and Khanauri border points, the farmers and farm labourers from other states should reach Delhi on March 6 for a protest in the national capital in support of the farmers' demands.

"The farmers from far away states, who cannot reach on tractor trolleys, should head to Delhi by trains and by other means of transport. It will also become clear whether the government allows those farmers who go without tractor trolleys to enter Delhi," Pandher said addressing the gathering at Balloh.

"At Shambhu and Khanauri, the agitation will continue like before and will be further intensified. Our agitation will continue till the demands are met," he added.

Pandher said the two forums to spread this agitation countrywide call upon the farmers and labourers across the country that the 'rail roko' protest will be held in the country from noon to 4 pm on March 10 to put pressure on the government to meet the farmers' demands.

Pandher said all Punjab panchayats should pass a resolution in support of the farmers' demands and from every village a tractor trolley reach the protest border points.

He said the Centre had never before used drones in the farmers’ agitation as the Haryana Police used recently.
