No talks till farm laws rolled back, says Kokri

Moga, November 28

Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ekta) general secretary Sukhdev Singh Kokri has announced that the farmers will enter Delhi and hold protest at Jantar Mantar. Thousands of supporters of the BKU (Ekta) are presently stationed on the Delhi border in Haryana.

Kokri said they had given time to the Delhi Police till morning to grant permission to enter Delhi and hold protest in the Jantar Mantar area.

"If the Delhi Police do not allow the farmers to go to Jantar Mantar, they will break the barriers and forcibly enter the national Capital. We will not sit on dharna on the premises of the dera of the Namdhari sect," he said.

Kokri, who suffered a fracture on his hand and arm today, said a convoy of thousands of farmers from Rajasthan would also join them by Sunday morning.

Kokri said nothing less than rollback of the controversial farm laws was acceptable to them. He further claimed that thousands of farmers from western UP, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan would also join them in the protests by tomorrow evening.

"If the Union Government does not accept our demands, we will lay siege to Delhi from all sides and block all highways," he said. — TNS
