Farmers to organize Tractor Rally if Jan 4 talks fail

Agitating farmers on Friday resolved to intensify their movement from January 6 if the seventh round of talks with the government scheduled on Jan 4 fail to yield any result. They would organize a Tractor Rally as a part of their demand to build up pressure on the government.  

Talking to media-persons after a meeting held on Friday evening Yogendra Yadav, the leader of Swaraj India said that the government does not appear to be serious in repealing the three farm laws and in giving legal guarantee to the Minimum Support Price (MSP).

He said that the farmers had earlier decided to intensify their movement from Dec 31 but then put it off because of the government offer for talks. However, if nothing comes out after Jan 4 meeting, the farmers would be compelled to carry on their plan.

The Tractor Rally or March would be held on Kundli-Manesar-Palwal route. A large number of farmers from Rajasthan and Haryana would move to those places as a part of this march.

Speaking on the occasion another farmers’ leader Yudhvir Singh said that if the government is thinking that it would remove the farmers as it had done with the Shaheen Bagh protestors then it is wrong. They would carry out their movement come what may.

Meanwhile, the movement entered its 38th day on Saturday even though Delhi and the adjoining states are in the grip of bitter cold.
