Even amidst the freezing cold weather in Delhi, farmers continue their struggle against the government on the borders of National capital. In freezing winter nights, the farmers are adamant to win the fight. On Sunday, the farmers will remember those who lost their lives during the movement.
Farmers’ organizations discussed and have announced nationwide meetings to pay tribute to martyred farmers on Sunday. According to farmer organisations, about 30 farmers have given their lives to save farming. Every village in the country has joined the peasant movement. Each village will organize tribute meetings in the memory of the martyrs.
On Sunday, Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chadhuni said that, tribute meetings will happen in all the districts, tehsils and villages of the country. In these meetings, we will remember those who lost their lives during the movement.
Omkar Singh of the Indian Farmers Union Rajewal told that there will be tribute meetings between 11 am and 1 am in the memory of the farmers.
With this, every farmer of the country will join the movement. We will keep our voice firmly against all three agriculture laws. United Kisan Morcha has also released a poster for Sunday’s event. The poster has pictures of farmers who lost their lives in the movement. The poster is being shared across the country through different means.
There will be meetings at dharna sites on the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders. However, the main event will be on the Singhu border. Leaders of farmer organizations will be at the event. The famers will pay tribute to their brothers and will also have a public talk about the government’s attitude.
After the end of the tribute meeting, there will be a meeting of the leaders of the United Kisan Morcha at 2 pm on the Singhu border. They will also discuss the future strategy of the movement. Farmer leaders say that the government is trying to break the movement in every way. But the movement is growing every day.
Sunday’s nationwide campaign will show the government the level at which the farmers’ movement is linked to the land. In a press conference on Saturday evening at UP Gate, the farmers organization asked the state government to stop the harassment of farmers.
They warned the government that they will close all 14 lanes of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway if farmers are stopped from reaching Delhi. The administration must not try to put pressure was on the families of farmers. After joint talks with Rakesh Tikait and other farmers, farmer leader VM Singh said that the police and administration is stopping the farmers coming to the movement. The police is also seizing their tractor-trolleys.
The police are using the registration numbers of vehicles of farmers outside the protest sites to get their addresses. They are then going to their homes to pressurize the families of farmers to call them back. Meanwhile, the Farmers have invited Meerut commissioner to resolve these issues.
