The farmers’ protest against the new agriculture laws continues on the 43rd day and farmers across Delhi’s borders will take out a tractor march on Thursday (7 December). Farmers are calling it a rehearsal of the tractor parade on 26 January. Let the farmers know that on Republic Day, in Delhi and other parts of the country, there has been a warning to carry out a parade.
Tractor march will not enter Delhi
Rakesh Tikait, the national spokesperson of the Bharatiya Kisan Union, gave information about the Kisan Rally and said that one batch of the tractor rally will go from Dasna to Aligarh to Aligarh, while the other group will go from Noida to Palwal route. We have told the administration about our route. Along with this, he also said that the tractor march will not enter Delhi and after traveling till Dasna and Palwal will end at the respective boundaries.
Tractor tour of farmers will leave at 11 o’clock
Jamuri Kisan Sabha general secretary Kulwant Singh Sandhu said that hundreds of tractors would march from Singhu and Tikari border to Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) or Western Expressway. He said, “Hundreds of tractors from both the borders will leave at around 11 am and proceed towards the KMP Expressway and return to their camps from there.” At the same time, farmers associated with Bharatiya Kisan Union-Bhanu (BKU Bhanu) will march tractors from Mahamaya flyover to Chilla Border (Delhi-Noida Link Road).
There will be problem of traffic jam in outskirts
Joint Commissioner of Police (Western Range) Shalini Singh said, “There is no fixed plan for the tractor march to enter Delhi, so the police system will remain as before, but traffic is likely to be affected in the outskirts.”
Diversion on Eastern Peripheral Expressway
Noida police said that the tractor will be diversified on the Kundli-Ghaziabad-Palwal or Eastern Peripheral Expressway in view of the march. Police said in its statement, “Trains going from Bil Akbarpur and Sirsa Cut to Palwal will not be allowed to go on Eastern Peripheral Express-Pay from 12 noon to 3 pm. Apart from this, trains going from Sirsa Cut and Beal Akbarpur towards Sonipat will not be able to go on the expressway from 2 pm to 5 pm.
8th round of talks to be held on 8 January
The seventh round of talks on Monday between farmers and the government, which were protesting against the Agricultural Laws, were also imprecise. Farmers’ organizations remained adamant on the demand for complete repeal of the laws in the meeting, while the government wanted to discuss the points with the loopholes of the laws. The next round of talks between the farmers and the government will be held on 8 January.
Talk was made on these issues in the sixth round of talks
In the sixth round of talks between the farmers and the central government on December 30, some consensus was reached to address the farmers’ concerns about the increase in electricity rates and the penalty for burning stubble, but the deadlock remained on two major issues. Farmers demand that the legal guarantee for the minimum support price (MSP) be given and the three new agricultural laws should be scrapped.
