Farmers On 700 Tractor Trolleys Leave For Delhi To Join Protest

Amritsar: Members of Kisan Mazdoor Sangarsh Committee on Thursday started their journey to Delhi to join the farmers’ protest. SS Pandher, a member of the committee, said that about 700 tractor trolleys were moving towards Delhi’s Kundli border.

Leaders of farm unions on Friday said they have not “shut the doors” for talks over the new agricultural laws, but the government must come up with a “concrete proposal” and address their demands in earnest.

This came after Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar once again made attempts to assuage the farmers’ anger, saying the government was unconditionally willing to hold talks with them “without any ego” to reach a common ground.

The Delhi Police, meanwhile, said that two officers – a deputy commissioner of police and and additional deputy commissioner of police, at the Singhu border have tested positive for coronavirus.

Hundreds of thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab and Haryana, have been camping along Delhi’s borders for over 15 days, saying they won’t leave until the government rolls back what they called the “black laws”. The Centre has tried to allay fears in several rounds of talks, but has refused to repeal the legislations.

‘Only God Knows’

As the farmers’ protest has entered day 16, farmer leader Shiv Kumar Kakka said, “Only God knows” the solution.

“We are facing a lot of difficulties due to cold weather and the Covid-19 pandemic, but despite this, we will continue our protest until our demands are met,” Kakka told.

The farmers’ unions are now threatening to block railway tracks.

According to their earlier plan of blocking Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Agra highway by tomorrow, more farmers are likely to join the protests on Friday.
