"We shall march towards Parliament to express our protest and when and where we are stopped, we shall sit in protest. We now want guaranteed MSP and compensation for the deceased farmers apart from the punishment to the accused in Lakhimpur Kheri," Bohar Singh Rupian Wala, district president of BKU Sidhupur-Ekta.

 

FARIDKOT: About 500 tractor-trolleys are expected to reach the Delhi borders by November 29 to march towards the parliament, a programme as earlier chalked out by the Bharti Kisan Union Sidhupur-Ekta.

“We have chalked out a programme to  march towards the Parliament on November 29. About 500 trolleys and 250 tractors are expected to reach the border along with 6 months of the ration for supporting the agitating farmers. Each tractor would drag two trollies behind it and have loaded with ration for 6 months. We have won half of the victory and still, we want to continue our protest to achieve full victory,” said Bohar Singh Rupian Wala, district president of the BKU Sidhupur Ekta.

“As far as Faridkot is concerned, we have to move about 50 trollies from the district and we are covering 9 districts totalling to 500 trolleys travelled by the protesters and an additional ration of 6 months,’ he said.

Apart from Tractor trolleys, most of our farmers are journeying in the trains and join us there, he said.

“First our tractor trolley would reach the Singhu border for one night, then they would drive to Tikri border and then on November 29, we shall move towards the parliament. We are not going to move our people sitting in the tents, rather these new people would be led towards the parliament and whenever and wherever we are stopped, we shall sit there to protest peacefully,” said Bohar Singh,president BKU Sidhupur Ekta speaking to the Punjab tribune over phone.

“We have won half the battle, but now we want the guaranteed MSP for all crops,punishment for the Lakhimpur Kheri accused and compensation to the farmers who have laid down their lives in the farming agitation,” Bohar Singh said speaking to the reporters.

 

Many farmers from Faridkot have today started their journey towards the Delhi borders peacefully.

The state president of the BKU Sidhupur Ekta, Jagjeet Singh Dallewal had announced the schedule and said that his union would not go back unless all their demands are met.

  

Farmers continue to create pressure apart from the repeal of the 3 farms laws to address the other issues incling stubble burning and electricity bills.
