The farmers’ protest at the Singhu and Tikri borders completed 150 days.
“Our protest is an example of unity and commitment towards a just cause. The Centre tried several tactics to defame the protest, but farmers held their ground during the past 150 days.
“They won’t step back without getting the three farm laws repealed,” said Pargat Singh, a pacesetter of the BKU (Rajewal).
Other Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) leaders said farmers had already won the battle ethically and morally by protesting peacefully for five months. “The victory are going to be complete once the Centre repeals the three farm laws and assures legal guarantee on the MSP,” said Dr. Darshan Pal, an SKM leader.
Another SKM leader Balbir Singh Rajewal said farmers had already opened one side of the road for emergency services in sight of the rising Covid cases and cleaned it today, but barricades put up by the Delhi Police had not yet been removed.
On the KMP expressway, meanwhile, the authorities tried to re-start toll plazas again today.
Gurnam Singh Chaduni, a BKU leader, said: “No toll are going to be charged till farmers are protesting. If the government and toll operators attempt to charge the toll, they’re going to face protest by farmers.”
