Folk dance at farm protest site

Jhajjar, February 18

A festive mood prevailed on the Rohtak-Delhi track, where scores of protesting farmers, including women, gathered on Thursday as part of "rail roko".

Farmers sang 'ragnis' dedicated to peasant leader Sir Chhotu Ram while women performed folk dance. Youngsters were seen waving the Tricolour at various dharna points on the track. The protesters served tea, 'samosas', bread 'pakoras' and 'ladoos' to rail passengers to mobilise their support. 'Jalebis' were distributed among the protesters.

Bijender, who participated in the protest at the Aasodha railway station, said today's 'rail roko' aimed at mounting pressure on the Central Government to repeal the three agricultural laws. "We ensured that the protest remains peaceful," he added.

Inderjit Singh, vice-president of the Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Sabha, said a great enthusiasm also witnessed among youngsters, who created a patriotic atmosphere by waving the Tricolour during the protest.
