Sonepat, January 10

More farmers from Punjab have started reaching the Singhu border ahead of the Republic Day tractor parade.

On Sunday, a group of farmers from Bathinda reached Sonepat by train. They took an auto-rickshaw for the Singhu border.

Among them were Kartar Singh and Balbir Singh, who said the Centre's adamant attitude forced farmers to protest in the bone-chilling cold for the past 45 days.

"We will not step back until the Centre repeals the farm laws," said their friend Manender Singh.

"If the Centre doesn't revoke the laws till January 26, farmers will be forced to enter the national capital. We have come here for the preparations for the tractor parade scheduled for January 26," Kartar said.

Farmers' leaders, meanwhile, appealed to people to celebrate Lohri (January 13) and Makar Sankranti (January 14) by burning copies of the three controversial farm laws.

On the Women Farmers' Day (January 18), women will lead the protest at the tehsil, district and city level in Haryana and at protest sites at the Delhi borders. On January 20, on the occasion of Prakash Purb of Guru Gobind Singh, an oath will be taken to achieve their goal of getting the laws repealed.


Boycott BJP leaders

The Sanyukt Kisan Morcha on Sunday appealed to Punjab people to socially boycott BJP leaders Harjit Grewal and Surjit Jyani, and oppose their entry into Punjab. "Grewal and Jyani have been regularly giving statements against farmers. They have started making false allegations to defame the movement," it said on Sunday.

Protest Schedule

On Women Farmers' Day (Jan 18), women will lead the protest at tehsil, district and city level in Haryana and at protest sites on Delhi borders. On Jan 20, an oath will be taken to make the struggle successful.
