Sangrur, November 24
Farmers across the state are geared up to mark the first anniversary of anti-agricultural laws on November 26 at the Delhi borders. Many have converted their tractor trailers into small rooms with the help of tarpaulins and stocked up woolens and grocery items, and are ready to stay put at the borders if directed by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM).
“We all are excited to be part of an unprecedented gathering of farmers on November 26. We have been making all arrangements as we did last year before the start of our indefinite agitation against the farm laws,” said Gurbinder Singh, a protesting farmer at Sangrur.
Youth are taking care of transportation of protesters in trailers, and many have already reached Delhi, while women are busy collecting ration and other essential items for the mega event.
“Even last December, we did not face any problem during our stay at the border. We had every facility in our trailers. This time also, farmers are making the same preparation. We have all arrangements in place to tackle cold conditions,” said Harjinder Singh, press secretary, BKU (Ugrahan), Lehra block.
There are many big villages, including Gharachon, Mehla Chownk, Chhajli, Kalajhar, Jhaneri and others, from where organisations are expecting a large movement for Delhi in the next three days.
