The farmers’ movement has suffered a major setback since the disturbances in the National Capital Delhi’s Red Fort and ITO.
In this sequence, farmers’ organizations convened a Mahapanchayat in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh today. Thousands of farmers participated in this meeting and discussed further strategies on farmer movement.
Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) President Naresh Tikait said that the peasant movement will continue.
The mahapanchayat, which started on Friday, is over now, thousands of farmers present there have decided to join the farmers movement on the Ghazipur border.
According to the report, thousands of farmers of Muzaffarnagar, who took part in the Kisan Mahapanchayat against the agriculture laws of the Center, have decided today that they will continue the farmer protests that have been going on for two months and will start moving towards Ghazipur border from Saturday.
Significantly, after the passionate appeal of Indian Farmers Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait, the farmers have declared a fight across. A Mahapanchayat was convened in Muzaffarnagar on Friday. Farmers from many neighboring states were gathered in this mahapanchayat. The farmers reached Sisauli on tractors.
After the uproar in Delhi on 26 January, the peasant movement seemed to be getting colder and the police was also preparing to remove the farmers who were lying on the Ghazipur border. But after Rakesh Tikait’s cry, the atmosphere has changed once again overnight.
On Friday morning, Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) leader Jayant Chaudhary reached Ghazipur border and met Rakesh Tikait here and extended his support to him.
